Not for Me

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.

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

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.
