We crossed paths yesterday and did not even acknowledge one other. It upset me a little when I thought about it later. Because just a year ago he was the same person I used to sit with & be oblivious of the world around us. It was the same person with who I have the best moments of my life, the best laughs too. It was the same person with whom I have over a 100 pictures in the most retarded way one could find me yet looking so comfortable. It was the same person with who I had celebrated passing, that too on an E grade. We were the same people, who used to arrive somewhere together & our friends knew it was time to get crazy. We were the same people who have gone out on the craziest drives of our lives, stolen things from supermarkets, gotten in trouble with the police, cursed the shit out of anyone who tried to insult either one of us, changed the other ones life in true meaning. And yesterday, we just walked past each other...

Is this how we repay the ones who have been there through good & bad times? Do we change SO
much that a number of 365 days actually means something? Do circumstances do this to us? Or do we have a choice to be this way? Can someone not mean anything to you when at one point she/he meant everything to you? Is THIS friendship? Does college, job, marriage, children mean everything and these people who are now “methods of convenience” do not stand anywhere in your life? What changes all this? What changes us?

    love is a strange thing.... it gives you so much yet takes away everything from us !!

    and i don't get why people stop loving each other if they aren't together or atleast one of them stops !! LOVE DOESN'T MEAN TO BE TOGETHER !! per may be it just can't survive distance....

    Ye love pe post nai hai
    Ye friendship pe hai
    If you mean love between friend OKAY

    AND also if you thought it was a love post bcuz of the italic para, just so you know:
    a) it does not concern me..just a piece of writing
    b) they're not ex-lovers. They were friends.
    c) I didn't write 'she' bcuz i'm kind of tired of the typical 'she-she' & 'he-he' frienships! =)

    Time and circumstances change people! Maturity is another factor! It sucks to see people who loved[The friends one] each other too much moving apart :(
