My friends kept on asking me what we were. All I could ever tell them was you were an ex-something, an ex-maybe, an ex-almost.
We started in the most unexciting way—as friends. I thought you were just like any other close friend until we were spending too much time with each other. We were used to texting each other every now and then but you suddenly texted me on mornings and nights—,’til my days were all about you. Our small talks slowly turned to long conversations keeping me up until morning. You’ve always known how hard it was for me before staying up late but with you, it just happened.
Suddenly, we were doing all the things a normal couple would do. We went on dates, we watched movies, we were close to each other’s families but there’s one thing we did not do—hindi natin nilinaw kung ano ba talaga tayo.
