What's Wrong With Me?

I stay silent,
Unheard,
No words fall off of my lips.
I give a shy smile,
Scared,
A smile that pleads for conversation.
I blush bright red,
Embarrassed,
Thinking I look like a fool.
He looks confused,
Only for a second,
As he walks on past.
He scans the crowd,
Eyes gleaming,
Ready for laughter.
He spots what he is looking for,
A group,
His friends.
The girls smile flirtatiously,
They talk,
Laughter echoes.
I watch everything,
Unnoticed,
Thinking "how do I approach?"
He scans the crowed once more,
Looking,
His eyes not even seeing me.
I stand Unnoticed,
Invisible,
Trying to fight back the tears.
I wonder,
Thinking,
What's wrong with me?
