"Dreamin' of You" by Selena

What’s that one song that always reminds you of the one that got away?

Kind of sad that the singer is dead, she was a really good singer. If I told you that I never loved anyone, I'd be lying like no other. Yes, it's like a bad joke. I know. That Sam actually loved someone. No, it isn't that far fetched, I'm human and fall for people. One could I tell you about her. I'd profile her, but I don't think you'd like that. Only weird people like talk about people like they are objects or something. I'll tell you her name. Grace. So, Korean. She reminds me of when I was younger. Actually, it's more like High school, even worse, Freshman. I don't know why I carry around this. I don't really care what anyone thinks. I remember a lot of good things about her. I also remember the horrible thing that I did. I saw her at Cal State Fullerton, but I didn't have the courage to talk to her. I kind of felt like it was a dead end and I should let it go. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm stupid. Anyways... I should tell you about the song. There were a billion songs that were big during my life in high school. It's kind of odd that I still remember it. It brings a smile to my face and if you know me, I don't smile much. I'm kind of broody, actually, I am broody. I'm trying out for Batman, alright. Drop it. But one day, in Spanish, man, I love that class. It was like destiny because we kept sitting next to each other whenever the teacher gave us seating charts. Yeah, our teacher did that. Interestingly enough, he stuck the three Korean kids together with one African American guy, Dante. One day, the teacher makes us play, memory with English and Spanish words. Don't ask me what she was wearing cause that's beyond me. I remember finding it fun, I remember losing to her. I think she knew. She was really smart. And I was an idiot. And yes, I'm smiling as I'm writing this cause it's one of the good memories I have. I don't have many. After we are done playing, "Dreamin' of You" is on the radio because the teacher was playing the radio. My feelings started developing during summer school and it manifested into this. Dan, my best friend, and I have a lot of conversations about this. Anyways, I remember looking at her. Later on, our friendship develops into one where she kids around with me. It wasn't until later I realized that she was in my 8th grade science class. I wasn't such a detective in my high school days, I wanted to be a D.A. Don't ask. Hahhaha... did you see that? Let me just tell you something, something that happened after Freshman year weren't very good. Lots of mistakes were made. But I do miss the simpleness of high school. And I miss the girl's smile. The last time I said I probably won't see her again, I saw her in Spanish. The second time I said I won't see her again, I saw walking passed me on campus in Cal State Fullerton. So, just for fun, I'm going to say I probably never see her again. I'm an idiot.
