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?

Beautiful.  It's hard to capture emotion like that, but you did it. Great job and keep it up.

so easy to relate to. great topic. nobody usually likes to talk about their mistakes. only the mistakes of others, blaming it all on somebody else...

I am crying right now. All of my friends have boyfriends or have had them. All except me. What is the wors though is when someone says that they like you, but the only feeling that they have for you is pitty.

Very nice! I think the best pieces on this sight are those in which the author keeps it real. Agreed, the fairytell froo froo stuff is interesting, but pieces that really get down to the nitty gritty are the ones i remember. Ur very impressive!

I really lik eyour POV on this =) I know how you feel, I'm always jealous when I see a couple on the streets, holding hands. An arm around the other. But then they start making out and... yeah, it isn't always just a little kiss. Haha
