When people fall at significantly different speeds, someone usually hits the ground hard. - "Jenkins"

...and just like that, the feeling was replayed.

The sound it made was unexpected, and even if there was a warning, no preparation was sufficient enough to avoid its sure-fire dent. It's worse than knowing you're about to be put out for being deliquent on the last three months rent...but this aint about a coupla bills and some change. The depth of this blow couldn't be detected with the sharpest of shooter's range. And while the other party got a band-aid to cover up the blow, there wasn't enough stitches in the world to stop this blood and its flow...from what happened from the fall. It's exactly why there's a reluctance to try, even when knowing the opposite of this results in the greatest thrill. It's just that after that last fall, it seems wise to retreat to the sidelines, and chill.

2. an event, occurence, etc. that sets off a chain reaction.

Thoughts of you returned again, and this time, there was no attempt to figure out why. It stemmed from something coming up soon; staring me in the face, despite no attempt to figure it out or try. Is it fair that something totally unrelated finds a way to still come along? Just like when you put on a seemingly different record, in essence, it sounds just like the same old song.

Someone once said love is stronger than pride, and in it, all of the lyrics ring true. It would be foolish to think it applies to any and everyone, but it certainly does to you. However, there's a peace in knowing, one day, thoughts will stop becoming words on paper, as it goes for this tale. Days will continue on as always, with not a single doubt or fail. You're not like the others, and to say you are, would be a lie I'm not willing to endorse. Yet, peace of mind is the priority now, and it's officially taken the front seat on this course.

Rarely was a trip more anticipated than this. It wasn't because of a football game, to see some hoops, or a trip to an amusement park either. It was more than that, and even though the trip seemed long, there was no desire to come up for a breather. The mere thought of being submerged within was so strong, yet there was no concern of passing out. After all this time, a reminder was shown of what authentically good times are truly all about.

Even with that, things are in the way, which we know are too much to overcome. Unlike times past, that reality doesn't turn into anger or any other negative feelings to ponder where they're coming from. It's because a friendship, a true friendship, was established first; one that developed for years, which provided a great foundation to withstand what life tends to bring. Despite that, saying "lets just be friends" is an insult, because of all that our interaction truly means.

Someone once said "quitting while you're ahead isn't the same as quitting," and that statement rings true, especially here. And even though our interaction will be re-defined, it won't tail off, because I'll always be near.
