I can still remember the first time we talked. I can still remember that it took you time to reply to my messages that makes me want more of your words. I can still remember that majestic bee-stung lips of yours which I tried to imitate but I just can’t. I can still remember you saying, that you recall a cartoon show on me and called me Double D afterwards. I just want you to know that love the way we first met.
I love it when you cuss ‘though you’re not really that bluntly saying those profanities in person. I love it when you push me away and I was so insistent to know you more. I love it when you hated me for seeing your vulnerability by the time you shared me your sentiments. I love how you associate your thoughts with the relationship you have with your family. I love how unpredictable you can be. And I love how you stand for yourself without living on other else’s skin. I love how you compliment me with my singing voice and draws it back by throwing me bashes. I love how we play roles of a masochist and a sadist — you being the latter. I love how you insult me and be vexed when I wasn’t prickled any of your wicked words. I love how my voice over the phone sounds flirty on you. And I love you, calling me names, especially ‘weirdo’
I was indifferent when you were pushing me away. But I still can remember how we talked how much you ‘dislike’ me. I love how you stated ‘If I don’t like you, I would never talk to you.’ Those little things mean so much to me. I never hated you for who you are. I never hated your thoughts including how you never believe in love. For maybe it’s because of your experiences that drove you to who you are now. But I just want you to remember Pink’s line in one of her songs, ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ — “That we are not broken, just bent. And we can learn to love again.”
Blessed Birthday Ricos! And please remember that I’m only the one who can call you Shey. And I can still recall you label me ‘selfish’ for that. HAHA. Thank you for bearing with my slapstick jokes. I really admire how you write. You’re one of my favorite writers here. Thank you for the friendship. May God bless you. :)
With lots of love,
Double D, Eddrian
