Need Love?

See it but never feel it.
Get close, only to push it away.
“Don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone”
Epitome of my life.
What is wrong with me?
What makes me so un-lovable?
Can someone remove this defective sign from my forehead,
And replace it with a kiss.
I want more than mediocre.
I want someone to miss.
Do I ask for too much?
Are my requirements unachievable?
My heart remains unconquered, unattained.
I’m tired of fairy tale endings,
Silly thoughts put in my head by unrealistic, but hopelessly believable movies.
They are all the same.
Girl meets boy. Girl messes it up. Boy forgives girl.
Happily Ever After.
At least they let on that relationships have problems.
I want raw, unrelenting love.
The real deal.
No movie, novel, or episode of “Sex and the City” could ever touch.
Left alone, drowning in thoughts,
Who else in the world could need love,
Like I need love?

It's funny how at the end you say "Who else in the world could need love like i need love?" Yet everyone who has commented can relate. I loved it!

This feels like me to a t. Help.

Nice poem!

At one point in my life, I felt this way. 100%. But then I stopped and looked at the bigger picture. The reason why I couldnt find love was because I wouldnt let myself. I had convinced myself that I wasnt capable of loving, so I set myself up for failure in every relationship I had embarked on. Just recently I came to my senses and stopped feeling like this. Now Im happy in my relationship of a year and a half, and I can only thank myself for being happy. Make yourself happy first, then add a boyfriend (or girlfriend.) You are a whole; you dont need someone in your life to complete you.
