Then Again...

February 24, 2010
We didn't have to meet.
We didn't need to strike up a conversation.
I didn't have to give you my number.
But, then again -
You didn't need to dial it.

We didn't have to talk.
We didn't need to get to know eachother.
I didn't have to trust and confide in you.
But, then again -
You didn't need to listen.

We didn't have to be friends.
We didn't need to like one another.
I didn't have to believe you whatsoever.
But, then again -
You didn't need to be honest.

We didn't have to be happy.
I didn't need to say "I love you"
But, then again -
You didn't have to say it back
We didn't need to fall in love.
But, then again -
We did.

it's ambiguous it could go either way as either character. and i am huge into fate. my favorite quote is "coincidences are just God's way of remaining anonymous" (albert einstein) and destiny has played a huge role in my life especially in my friendships and relationships.
