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?

>>>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.

Love what need of it to pass time.. no just the need of feeling ever so deeply.. not love the word is used to much to mean anything

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 :)
