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?

maybe if you were to stop trying to find love, it will find you.. just a thought.. but nice poem. I feel the same way at times. but then I realize I can find love in my own way, and I dont need a "partener" to be happy.

Soon after I read(and reread) your poem, I had the feeling that I instantly had to tell everyone about it! Which I did XD by posting a link on facebook - I hope you don't mind.

It's rather breath-taking how I can easily relate to this poem so very much which is one of the reasons why I loved it.

Good job!
