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?

Wow. I never knew you possessed such an amazing talent for poetry. It makes you want to question what love really is and you do a fantastic job in stating your argument. I'm glad that you're letting your feelings permeate through this poem because I don't really get to hear about them often enough. Again, amazing job. Keep the poetry coming!

This poem sounds so much like my own life. So sad. Nobody is alone when they say they need love. We all do. It is a fact of life. But a sad one since it can take so long to find that one true love, the one that will love you no matter what. Keep writing!

This poem is really good, and so true. I've felt the same way so many times, and it sucks no matter what you do to remedy the situation. Why couldn't finding someone to love be easy?

Very well written and I deffinetly like it. It reflects the truth about love and life in itself. One of my favorite quotes goes, "Love is like a battle. If you win, you lose." I have some stuff written and I would appreciate it if other people read my poems to critique them as well. Just Search Brittany A Pinedale Wy. Thanks
