See Me

What is it you want from me?
There has got to be something I do not see.
The way you look at her,
to me, I wish you would do the same.
I do not want to be just another girl
on your long list of a game.
What is so different about me
that makes it impossible to see
that I am a real person as well
with feelings
a life...
but still love.
and time
that I want to give to you.

But to you, it is like receiving a single rose
after someone gave you ten dozen.

What makes me different, you may ask.
I am simply

Take a chance on me...
maybe you will see.
That I'm worth another glance,
but I won't give you a second chance.
Now or never.
no time like the present hour.

I just want to know.
what you see,
when you
see me.

After a bad break up recently with a two-year long relationship, I know this feeling and you did a great job putting it into words.

I have to agree with the addiction. It's a good thing that they don't have AA meetings for peotry addicts.

mmfdg623 is right. I am always the person a guy looks over so I totally understand. Compare me to my friend We may both be really out going but all the time she outshines me when I stand by her so most of the time guys look over me and unto her and say stuff like "Wow"!!! So I really do understand! You are a GREAT writer! keep up the great work!

This poem really hits close to my heart. Right now I'm in the middle of a situation just like the one you described and it's hard. But he's got a girlfriend so I don't really have a chance. And besides I'm always the girl with her head buried in a book so not many guys notice me anyway. So even if he was single I still wouldn't really have a chance.

I love this poem, and I know exactly what you mean. I am the girl that the guys overlook, especially since my best friend is a lot more outgoing than I am. Keep up the good work.

Thank you all for your kind words. :) You are all truly inspiring.

To EdytD:
I know exactly what you mean. Someday, someone will get it. :) and he will be the "coolest" guy of all.

I liked it, and I can definitely relate - as someone who's priorities are academic, i am often passed over as nobody from the "cooler" guys.
