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?

OMG this is fantastic! I can relate to this so well and the poem as a whole is just amazing.  This writing is the piece that will touch so many teens out there who feel this way but never say a word. Keep on writing!

This poem is pretty good. What makes  it so good is that it expresses a feeling that, assuming, everyone who commented or voted, including me, can relate to. It's a part of growing up :)

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.
