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?

I love how you put a twist on a classic thought. You analyzed all the pop culture surrounding the idea of love and tore it apart while still looking at it wistfully. Really awesome.

I get it, every single word of this poem. It's almost as if you reached into my brain and were able to put every single thought and feeling that i have into just a few words. It's nice to know I'm not alone.

Thank you all for reading my poem! I'm glad that so many of you are able to relate, although I do not wish this feeling upon anyone.
I understand that people may deem the topic of love unoriginal, superficial, and vague, but love is a difficult subject to write about. It is hard to even grasp an aspect of love, and that is one of the reasons why it is an "over used" topic in poetry and literature. It is quite a challenge to put love into words, and I do not believe anyone has ever been ... (more »)

Really good poem. Everyone keeps saying the idea is unoriginal but everyone has different opinions on the subject!
Also, can some people critique my poem please? It's called Little Girl. Thank you.
