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 is great work. It expresses exactly how I feel. Everytime I let myself like a guy I seem to screw everything up.I feel like its my fault.

i feel the same way. but in a different sense. im a guy. and its like i mess up every relationship i've ever had. in my eyes it's like nothing about me is right. so many people tell me otherwise. and yet the girl i have my heart set on is completely out of reach.

I love the message it sends across, but I'm not sure if I like this as a poem. To me, poetry is more of the traditional rhymes and stanzas. But, as poetry is all about the message - I'd like to thank you for sending a great one! Good job!
