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 thought you put into it. The touches of humor aren't bad, either. You just totally described the story of my life in this work. Nice job on this!

Hey, I was wondering if I could use this poem.  Of course I would give all the rights of the poem to you and make sure you are given credit for it.  But my friend and I are making a movie and this fits in perfectly so I was just wondering if I could use it? 

Thank you(:

I love this poem! I need love just like you need love! and look at how many there are just like us. a poem like this really brings out the best in people and makes a person step back and rethink their belif in humanity.

I really like this. And no, you're not the only one that feels this way. I always feel like I get so close to love, and push it away.

No, I didn't think that's what you said. I was actually talking about the author of this poem..it's all good. But yeah, I'm usually the one to push love away because I'm fearful or too independent or scared or something of that nature...it's tough, and I'm working through how to open up myself more to people so they can love me for who I REALLY am.

Love is always tough. Even when its true love. We just learn how to be strong and have a good friend to lean back on whenever we need it. Thats what i do. My best friend is the best. And we gotta remember, three things. 1)What doesnt kill us, only makes us stronger. 2)Our best friends will love us no matterwhat and they will always be there and 3)It takes time for love, and its hard now, but when it finally finds us, the struggle and wait will be worth it.
