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?

Alright, heres whats up. I generally hate reading poems. Just as I was about to click the red ex that was ever to luminous at the top of the page, I thought, "wait". Lets give this poem a chance. Perhaps to redefine the complete meaning of poetry for me...

 

Then I read it...

 

And it was quite the wonderful little thing. Thanks for creating a masterpiece that we all can enjoy.

Amazingly well written. My favorite part is the end; "I want raw, unrelenting love. The REAL DEAL." I think we can all connect with that.

"For there is love that is as stong as death, jealousy demanding as the grave. And many waters cannot quench this love." Your poem reminds me of this song. {=] Anybody look up the lyrics to this song if you ever get the chance.

This is amazing!! I love the "Can someone remove this defective sign from my forehead, and replace it with a kiss." Really beautiful writing. Would you mind looking at my poem? It's my first one that's been posted and I would love some feedback.
