More Than Friends

To the ones who are not lovers,

I saw you wearing his sweatshirt in cafeteria last month. I saw him holding your bags after a shopping spree this week. I saw him ordering your complex drink exactly how you like it. I saw you buy toiletries for him, right from classic perfumes to his anti frizz shampoo. I saw you two looking at each other at the café last Friday when Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ played in the background. I saw him get jealous yesterday when the guitarist at the college concert slipped you his number. I saw you clench your teeth when the girl with braids gave him a flirty smile. I saw everything but somehow you’ve not been seeing it.

Yes, you are just friends and will stay like this until you see what I’ve seen.

-The one who wants to be your lover

  3. It does make you wonder though, if you’ll allow me, how much of what that third party think (s)he saw is real… after all, (s)he clearly isn’t unbiased!

    I loved this, Yamini – you’ve an amazing talent for teasing out life’s details.

      It’s subjective, for the third party what he saw is real and not just his perception of the reality. While for the other two it might be real or perhaps it’s their inability to accept what is real!
