Every time you talk I want to answer you,
let you know I feel the same
but I’m not part of it so I stay quiet.
I had gotten over you
until I had to see you everyday.
Convincing myself we’d be great together
I thought there was something between us.
I know now that’s not true.
You seem wiser than your years
and at the same time you act your young age.
I refuse to be your pal when the others aren’t around.
I love your cheeky smile.
I felt bad ignoring you in the canteen
Were you trying to make an effort
Maybe even a move?
I remind myself you’ve had chances
and passed them up.
So I’ll do my work, answer you politely
give attitude when you warrant it.
You do your work, laugh with the clique.
I’ll keep secretly hoping to find a message
from you on Facebook.
