People mistake me for who I'm not...
they don't see me in me.
I'm treated like I should know everything...
when I don't.
Expectations of me are incredibly high...

I can be me.
Another Fish in the SeaI saw you with her one day on the field at lunch. You two were hugging. And you looked as though you were happy. In love maybe, even at our young age. And I watched from afar, the envy boiling up inside me.Another Fish in the Sea by mictionary

So I suppose my point is that I do like you, really. I have for a long time, only you
To Turn Back a ClockHer eyes are forever trying to find mine, but I find myself looking away purposely. It's as if we share a connection, jokes, even, but we don't. We never will. And they're just memories anyway. Stuff in the past that I'll never forget.To Turn Back a Clock by mictionary
My mind wanders back to that day, twelve weeks ago.
"Can you tell me what class I'm in?"
"No, you'll find out soon enough."
We watch her walk away. No doubt she's smiling, but I think all my chances of returning to her class are slowly slipping away. But the time we're seated on the cold wooden floor, they'll have reduced to nothing.
As as the principal's calling names, I descend into a thought-filled madness state, locked away in my brain.
I won't be in that class again. No chance. But what if I'm in 1, or 8? Okay, so 6 isn't too bad, but weigh that against 5.
See, Room 5 was my old class. Schoolwise, Room 5 was ... home.
