Where's the silver lining?
Day in and day out
As the time ticks by,
I wonder why oh why…
Why can't my heart fly?

Where's the silver lining?
The game of love's a mess…
I hope and dream through the night
That the future is oh so bright
Though I can never tell that it will be alright…

Where's the silver lining?
I couldn't really live without
All the fun I have with you
Even if our love may not be so true,
I'll be faithful to you, through and through.

Where's the silver lining?
I'm under so much stress...
I'm one you deserve,
I promise I will always preserve
My love for you, so unrequited
My love for you, so unlimited…

I Like You, I do. But I'm more of a friend, a brother, the fatherly guy that's always there. But I'm always there because I like you. I just wish you'd understand the way I feel. But there is no silver lining for me, because you could never understand. You're happy and in a relationship with someone who makes you smile. I can do no harm. You're untouchable, and it sucks.
I wish my life had a silver lining. I'm sick of this crap. I'm also sick of liking people I'll never be able to get. God I hate my relationship life's whims.

For the #Live-Love-Write writing prompt of finding a silver lining. (Even though this is sort of the opposite haha)

I hope it makes you feel better.
I also just learned that I cannot type whilst singing to Bon Jovi's Livin' On Prayer

Not really, considering everything that's been going on.

I'm too good of a friend that people wouldn't want to lose me, but it's sad because I'd do anything I could to make sure that the friendship could be preserved. If I can pull off keeping 3 decent friendships with people I used to like I can keep a friendship, though admittedly quite awkward, with an Ex. If, you know, they were reasonable people.

Unhappiness and awkwardness is unavoidable in life, and sometimes memory can be quite a cruel thing. But people will come and go and you have to move on with things, even if it seems so hard to do so. I've felt the same way you have before, and I know it sucks. But you're not alone.

Yeah, I know. But it doesn't even help when the person you like isn't single, nor is he or she aware of the fact that you like him/her, and it really sucks when you talk with them on a daily basis and they are still completely oblivious. Sure, it is kinda nice how you can get the time to figure stuff out, but you kind of end up chatting about you're plan to ask them out with them... it's rather weird.

But w/e. Just gotta keep looking up.

Btw, who do you think you'r class president would be for next year? Cause we'd be hanging out a lot, them and me.

I know exactly what it feels like to talk to a person who is oblivious to your crush on them and they're already taken. It made me cry a lot.

Oh, pfft. You wouldn't hang out with the likely class president next year. At least not by choice. Most likely, the class prez next year would probably be some bitchy prep who thinks poorly of everyone else but claims they're the best person in the world.

Hey, maybe I'll run for class president next year so if I win, the prez won't be a bitchy prep. But I probably won't run because I can't take on responsibilities that huge.
