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?

This poem is amazing. I feel the exact same way. I like the line "Left alone, drowning in thoughts" because I'm always drowning in my thoughts and questions as to when someone will love me. I really like this poem. Keep up the good work.

This poem could have been written by me, i feel exactly the same way! I too am tired of fairy tale endings and even more disturbed by my faith that prince charming is out there...hence my screen name ha.

Ah, teen angst. Unforunately, it just doesn't make unique poetry anymore. I know, writing what you feel takes a lot of energy and sometimes some courage, but there is so many more ideas and philosophies to explore, rather than the subject of low self esteem.

I do like the style of the writing though. Keep it up

poetry can cover so many topics but really it is a very personal thing to many people. Writing is always unique, I dont care how many times te topic has been explored.

Oh my goodness, this is awesome! Your poem actually brought tears of joy to my eyes it was so good. I love how it's so deep (for lack of a better word), but it's also so simple, and shows you really believe in what you're writing. I appreciate you writing this and sharing it with us.
