The Breakfast Club

10th grade
As I sat there in Enqlish class, I stared at the qirl next to me. She was my so called "best friend". I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didnt notice me like that, I knew it. After class she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before and handed them to her. She said "thanks" and qave me a kiSs on the cheek. I wanna tell her, i want her to know that i don`t
wanna Be just friends, I love her but i`m just too shy, and i don`t knOw why. .

11th Grade
The phone rang. on the other end it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I did. As i sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. after 2 hours, a Drew Barrymore movie, & 3 bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said "thanks" and gave me a kiSs on the cheek. I wAnna tell her, i want her to know that I don`t wanna be just friends, I love her but
im just too shy, and I don't know why.

Senior Year
The day before prom she walked to my locker. "My date is Sick" she said; he`s not qonna go. well I didnt have a dAte and in 7th qrade we made a promise that if neither of us had dates we would go together just as "best friends". So we did.

Prom niqht
After everything was over I was standing at her front door step. i stared at her, She smiled at me I want her to be mine, but she doesn`t think of me like that and i know it. then she said "I Had the best time, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanna tell her, I want her to know that i don`t want to be just friends, i love her but i`m just too shy, and I don`t kNow why.

Graduation Day
A day passed, then a week, then a month. before I could blink, it was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like an anqel up on staqe to qet her diploma. I wanted her to be mine, but she didnt notice me like that, and i knew it. before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as i hugged her. then she lifted her head from my shOulder and said, you`re my best friend, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the Cheek. I wanna tell her, I want her to know that I don`t wanna be just friends, I love her but i`m just too shy, and I don`t know why.

A Few Years Later
Now I sit in the pews of the church. that girl is gettinq married now. I watched her say "I do" and drive off to her new life, married to another man. I wanted her tO be mine, but she didn`t See me like that and I knew it. But before she Drove away, she came to me n said you came!". She said thanks!" and kissed me on the cheek. i wanna tell her, I want her tO know that I dont wanna be just friends, I love her but i`m just too shy, and I don`t know why

Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a qirl who used to be my "best friend". At the service they read a diary entry she had written in her hiqh school years. This is what it read: I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn`t notice me like that, and I know it. I wanna tell him, I wAnt him to know that i don`t wanna be just friends, I love him but i`m just too shy, and I don`t know why. I wish he would tell me he loved me . . I wish I did too .
I thought to mySelf, and I Cried.

I've read this one before. When I read it the first time I thought..."Who was following me and recorded my thoughts and experiences - how dare they"

You see, I was that shy boy that had a special friend all through grade school, high school and college. It always seemed that my intentions were never able to be communicated at the right time. Always it was her to inform me that there was always someone else, someone better than me - or so I thought. It was always the jerks and bastards that would attract her and I was always there to help pick up the pieces when it all fell apart.

When her marriage fell apart I wasn't there for her. I was the first person she called when she left him. She finally admitted her attraction for me and hoped that our friendship would be the basis for a great relationship. I felt sad for her but fate sometimes deals an even crueler hand.

Yes, I had compromised and found someone else. She is not my soul mate but I was lonely and settled for less. I knew that I couldn't wait for the love of my life forever. So when my friend finally admitted her desire I had to turn her away. I held on to my belief that the right thing to do was to stay where I was. I wasn't in my nature to be cruel to anyone and go back on my vows. She said she understood. I could hear her heart breaking through the small speaker of the phone. But there was nothing I could do. That day my heart was heavy but empty.

I've not heard from her since - over 10 years ago. Every day since then I wake up and wonder what could have been. I'm not happy with my choice mostly because the one I'm with is lacking the passion, enthusiasm and spontaneity that my friend has/had. However, no one has invented a time machine for us to go back and undo the mistakes we make in our lives.

Damn me for being a man of integrity and conviction.

A few years ago that would not have made the impression it does today --- even if you did not write it --- you bought it to my attention, while i did not have anything similar happen to me i can understand unrequited love.

Thank you
