"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee

I take in your breath-taking smile,
A dazzling sight to see -
Directed at someone who isn't me.

I look at your strong tan fingers,
So lovingly intertwined -
In a hand that isn't mine.

I hear your bold flirty comments,
That leave most in a state of shocked glee -
Said but not for me.

The author's comments:
Y'all know what I'm talking about - Loving someone who barely knows you're alive.

Been there. He didn't know I existed until a certain someone, ahem, Brielle, yelled it into the middle of class.

i really like how you wrote this from a normal view...this happens to everyone, yet not everyone can express it as well as you did

I lalalalooove this poem. I think that everyone has had this happen before.  It gets to me because I've been in this very position, it sucks.
