I wore this beautiful
white dress that
expressed the accent
against my illuminate skin
i cant pretend
that we are just friends
because i desire for more
i accessorized
with a flower
pined into my hair
and there you
stand and stare
gazing at me
so it seems, i saw
your smile
all the way
a mile away
i waved hey
but you just kept
gazing towards me
opened eyed fresh
with style
and it took me
a while to
realize you
were looking
at the girl
behind me
whom was shorter
less weighed
and a little
but it wasnt me
it wasnt me
so now i feel
as if unspoken
but more importantly
shattered and broken
