i wish it could be you

where do lives that run parallel with each other meet?

they say we take our own journeys on roads that we define on the basis of what we need and want in our lives. but what does it mean to want someone? what does it mean to need someone?

would the satisfaction of both questions lead to a crossroad?

sometimes i take a look at the road you’re walking on. it looks interesting. in fact i’d like to know more about it. your work, your friends. your past, your future, your plans and regrets. your questions, and mine. maybe even the stars can tell us a thing or two.

but… one of us is walking faster than the other. as if his past were right behind him waiting, running — even if tired and panting — to catch up.

i might be willing to admit that yes i want you. but the real question is, do i need you?

i don’t think so. by needing i don’t mean i seek you to complete me. far from it. in fact, i have learned that by myself i am quite fine. by needing, i mean you can take this journey along with me and validate me as a unique individual in a complementary partnership. that’s how i need to need someone.

and so i don’t think i need you. but if i prove myself wrong then that will have to be because you convinced me.

do lives that run parallel with each other ever meet? it depends, on whether both drivers are looking in the same direction.

    on the contrary, the things you say are original. but you need to see hitch to substantiate and validate your emotions. swak sa “i wish it could be you”. tapos, sundan mo ng white chicks!
