How It Happened
He had a friend
Who had a girlfriend
Who was amazing.
He wanted to impress Her,
Until he found out their link.
He stayed the friend, remained
The third wheel, and moved on.
Time passed. Relationships came
And went. Midnight movie premiers
Were seen, lost distance relationships
Cut short, and a long season
Had a long overdue finale.
He was happy, He was upset.
He was confidence, but only about
While all this happened, He never
Saw the cracks.
Though, neither did she.
Devastated, She was alone. No one
To turn to.
But He called
And She picked up
And He calmed her.
Because of this, He faced a decision
Between two friends
He tried to walk the fine line, but He knew He would fall
Picked the side
have the most cushion
He picked the girl
Over the bro.
He was a fugitive of the bro code
…That is, until the bro
Bro understood that she needed
Him more that Bro did.
He had another lesson to learn, though.
Like Ted, He had to make a big mistake
Before He could make the good choice.
He dated a mutual friend of Him and Her.
This friend was sort of crazy for Him.
And He thought he was crazy for This friend.
But He wasn’t.
And by the time he realized this, He didn’t know
What to do.
He ended up doing what He thought was right: to
End it before The friend attached herself to Him too much.
People were pissed
Words were said
Friendships were broken
But that didn’t matter as much
When She told Him her Secret
He was scared
He wasn’t sure
If they could do it.
He didn’t want to break
The Bro Code once more
To hurt Her like He had The friend
But He could tell
That something was different
And that something like this could work
And that it might last
And turn into something no one
He did it
He moved on
Even when most said it was wrong
(but JoAnna saw what He saw, and further,
and, thusly, provided some encouragement)
And so was the story
Of Him and Her
