   I watch you in the hallways at school

Standing with your girlfriend, your many admirers

Your pearl-white teeth shining.

Trying not to care as your blue eyes pass in my direction

Out of the corner of my eye I watch you

running your fingers through your bleached-blonde hair

Hoping to know you is like a dream

We're in two different worlds which will never be one.

But that's

okay

because I like remaining

distant.

Sometimes dreams are better than reality.
