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?

yu got the whole package wrapped up right there! and i think it's the same for all of us. love is so artificial these days. Your poem describes how teens in general think about it. five stars :)

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.
