Open Your Eyes

The hallway is dark
except for you.
You are bright
blindingly so.
No one else stands out
as much as you do.
My friends are talking
I laugh at their jokes,
but all I want
is for you to ask,
"What's so funny?"
But you don't.
You close your locker
and walk away.
Not a glance back
to where I watch you.
I slip away from my friends
and go sit down in class
and close my eyes.
