She struck just the right wound when she said I can only love what I cannot have.
My only reply was "You have no idea how right you are."
After all, I always have been alone.
I have some great stories of the women in my life and how they were beyond my reach for various reasons before I even met them.
But that's not why i'm writing this.
I'm writing this because I'm only now realizing that nearly every woman I ever fell in love with was someone who was at one point the girlfriend of a friend of mine.
I keep doing it because I see them happy and in love with someone else. I see how beautiful they are like that.
And so I fall for them.
And I see my friends happy with them, and i'm jealous.
I want what they have. That happiness. That beautiful girl.
I don't know how I never noticed before.
But I definitely know it's there now.
I'm chasing one of them.
