Heartwarming friendship

“They were  two children who  grew up way too fast…”

Two children were having fun at the playground

Blood red colour imprinted on their cheeks

And simple smiles exchanged back and forth.

They were just happy in their own little world

With their eyes sparkling like diamonds

And their innocent sweet faces.

They didn’t know what life will prepare for them

They saw the world as a playground…and they played.

Suddenly, the pink flavoured lollipops began to have a different taste

And they dropped the outside world for computer games.

Before realizing, they were teenagers who grew up way too fast.

She was 16 and she went from the cold-hearted girl

To the most vulnerable one

Or better yet to the broken one.

He had a messed up secret too afraid to tell the world about

And somewhere between her tears and his broken down moments

They realized they could never face the world alone,

They needed each other.

Somehow they were those little kids again

Who cried on one’s shoulder because of the broken bruises.

In this case, the only pieces broken were their hearts.

They realized that in life only the strong ones get back up again

And that some wounds would never heal, no matter how much time will pass.

She loved him,

He loved her,

And they both loved each other,

But not in that romantic way,

In that sweet friendship way specific to kids who grew up together.

No matter what will happen, they knew they had each other’s backs

And when they hugged the world fell together one more time

Because they cared about one another.

They could understand even the silence between them..

He wanted her to be happy,

And she wanted him to believe that the world was beautiful no matter how screwed up it may seem.

In the end, they all wanted the same thing

And not only them , but everyone else:

They all wanted to be loved.

The harsh truth: they already are

But they are too blind to see it.

“….but somehow the girl and the boy from the playground,

the little kids who had no idea what the world was all about,

learned the most important thing in the world:

the art of friendship…”
