Last night I had one of those life changing painful realizations. My life is not going to be the same ever again. It sounds simple and I know it happens to a lot of people, I even know it sometimes turns out alright, they like them back and a lovely romance evolves. This will never be my case. We met over 6 years ago, when we were 14 years old and we thought we knew everything about life and being cool. We had just started high school and he had a lot of friends, I barely knew anyone. So we stuck together. We love the same music and he even dated a model, years older than him, because I helped him a life time high for him. The relationship we had was fun, brother sisterly, and built on trust.
