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 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.

>>>Wanting love, not being planned or create a thought to love. But, wanting love, happening to get a new feeling

I love this. So many people can relate to it, and that's why this so easily pulls at our heartstrings..

I can relate to the need for a pure love that you can never seem to find, and the sadness that comes with not having that kind of love...

love is an unconcerable feeling and hard to come by but when  you get it you will know.
