She never knew.

She tossed her hair,
and smiled at me over her shoulder,
and I melted inside.
But she never knew. 
I sneered some off-handed comment,
faked a laugh,
and walked toward the door,
almost trembling.
But she never knew.
The oxygen had been sucked
from the room, and
my lungs strained,
gasping,
for a breath of air.
I rounded the corner,
and leaned against the wall.
But she never knew.
