What is Love?

March 17, 2009

Love. What is it? I don't have it. I don't receive it. For some unknown reason, I don't
deserve to be loved my others. I'm sick and tired of felling this way. But what am I going to do.
No one listens, no one cares. I am not loved, I was never loved, and I will never be loved. Maybe
love isn't a feeling or an action. Maybe it's just a word. A word that isn't in my dictionary.
A word that has no meaning for me. They tell me everything happens for a reason. That God has a
wonderful future for me. But I am starting to doubt everything, including God. They tell me, 'Oh,
maybe you and that guy weren't meant to be.' Maybe I wasn't meant to be alive. No one loves
me. They say, 'I love you,' but they use that word so loosely. How am I supposed to know they
mean it?! I used to stand so tall. I used to be so strong. Now I lay in my dark closet, alone, I
sit. I sit and I cry. I can't pretend I'm happy anymore. It's gotten too far.I try so hard to make my life better. No matter how much I pray or talk to the
Lord, I feel like He isn't there. I turn to friends but when I try to reach out, no one is there
to listen. I feel like I don't belong where I am. I have made wishes to be loved. But my wishes
never seem to come true. I don't get what I'm doing wrong. But whatever it is, it's keeping me
from being loved. In the eyes of others and of love, I don't appear. I am not there for anything.
I don't know why I was put on this earth. I don't know why I exist, why I live. I live with no
love. No love, no one to love. I just want to know'What is love?

~_~ I feel so sorry for you. You must feel so lonely and unwanted! Sometimes I feel the same way, but then I realize that everyone in the age we are probably in feel the same way. Sometimes we delude ourselves to thinking what isn't really there. Like a ghost, almost. We see it, and no one else does. Try reaching out. When I feel unwanted and unloved, I open up to someone (but be careful who that someone is...), like a friend who is very close, or my family. You could try, when the time is right, like when you have time to talk or is feeling lonely, to talk about your feelings to your parent(s). No doubt they will listen. Sometimes what happens in our personal life eclipses others' feelings. When you start to talk about how you are feeling unloved, you could start with, "I love you guys, you're such great parent(s)!" And then move on to talk about how you feel. That's just what I do. But you kinda have to pick the right time to talk about this kind of thing. You could earn money to buy them a little card and write a note in it??? Just a suggestion.

I like the poem. I can feel a lot from it. Great job! Keep writing!
