dumb poetry and sexual fantasies aside, i wanna talk about a different type of fantasy. u know the song 'Jessie's Girl' by Rick Springfield? it's an 80's classic that's been covered by numerous bands including Everclear. here's a sample of the lyrics:Jessie is a friend, yeah, I know he's been a good friend of mineBut lately something's changed that ain't hard to defineJessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mineAnd she's watching him with those eyesAnd she's lovin' him with that body, I just know itYeah 'n' he's holding her in his arms late, late at nightYou know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girlWhere can I find a woman like that
hearing the song reminds me of the forbidden love which is falling for your best friend's girlfriend. it's a topic that's been covered by everyone including that Cameron Diaz movie with Julia Roberts if i'm not mistaken.
i've even seen it happen with my own eyes. but i guess never between best friends of course. but among friends, hell yeah it happens all the time. to me, taking away your best buddy's girl is almost criminal. no...correction...it's murder.
and why shouldn't it be? the person u trust most (or most of the time) has the friggin' balls to take something from under your nose. but it can't be help, can it? as the lame excuse goes...we are only human.
i've been lucky enough never to have been involved in such an incident. but from the way i look at it....it must suck big time. yep, BIG TIME if u're the one on the losing end. but that's me. i'm no daredevil. i hate taking chances. the unknown scares me. i'm saying this coz i used to have this huge crush on a girl who already has someone back during uni days. and to add insult, the guy was a friend of mine. not a good friend, but a friend at least. i mean...how the hell do u cope with that? the fear of rejection and reality struck me and so i looked away from afar. like a beggar waiting outside the restaurant in hope of any scraps. unluckily for me...there was no scraps. and last i heard...they're getting married sometime next year kot.
no need for sympathies as i've gotten over the whole thing a long time ago. just a little stupid crush (i thought i used the word huge just now). but looking from a different perspective, i guess we should count our blessings. if u're lucky enough to find someone who u love and loves u dearly, it's good to think that there's probably someone out there who would love to be in your shoes. we might not realise it, but it's the truth. i guess everyone has a 'Jessie's Girl' moment. and it's good once in a while to think that we're in Jessie's shoes.
