Oblivious

Falling apart, I sit here, just trying to concentrate on algebra. Trying not to love you. 
And you're just sitting there, oblivious, laughing with your friend that sits at the desk in front of us. I laugh too, it's absurd.
You say my name, it sounds so much better in your voice. I blush and answer sarcasticly. 
Mr Webb yells at us. 
"Be quiet. Get on with your work."
I try. But when you're just sat there. Oblivous. I feel like kissing you.
Off on a tangent.
You kiss me back and say that you love me an do I want to go our sometime. 
But I don't. You don't.
You just sit there. Oblivious. Singing a song under your breath. Absentmindedly.
I know that tune. Quietly I sing along.
Under my breath. Absentmindedly.
"You and I"
