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?

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

I really like what you write about. I like it, not only because I can somehow relate to it in ways, but because it seems true. No cookie-cutter stuff like other people write about.

Great poem. You really reflect the way you feel. Please write more poems so that I can enjoy them just as I did this one.

Hey nice poem,
Although I don't understand why you crave love so dearly love it's a wounderful thing when you have it. but when you lose that love then it is the worst pain a person can ever feel. and I would'nt wish that upon anyone. But you are very talented at writing. and you do creat an image for people to see when reading your poems. so never stop writing. i think that you could go really far in this field.
