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.

Y'all know what I'm talking about - Loving someone who barely knows you're alive.

I can't decide if I'm glad I did it. I'm kinda depressed now because of the aftermath.... It all just depends on how much the friendship means to you and how badly you want it to be more. If you can handle just being friends, I suggest that. :

Ahw don't cry :'( A little advice - if you care about someone let them know. Even if it doesn't go how you want, at least you can stop torturing yourself with the what ifs. I did and it went terribly, but at least now we both know where we stand. Hope that helped a little? Thank ya Alana :)

I really liked this poem.  One point of advice would be to simplify the first line because to me, it reads a little awkward.  Other than that, really good!

I know exactly what you mean. It's worse when it's your best friend. He knows you're alive, but he doesn't really count you as a girl. I think it's so crazy they're as close as we are- if ya kno what I mean. Sucks to be us...
