I look in your eyes
And I see kindness;
Love.

I listen to your voice
And I hear happiness;
Joy.

I wrap myself in your hugs
And I feel confidence;
Safety.

I see the way you find all these things in her
And all I can think is hate.
Hate for myself
And how I know I'm just not good enough.

So I look in the mirror,
Searching for a reason,
But all I see is a sad,
Lonely girl
Who wishes
You loved her back.

I hate being the girl no one wants.

I have the same feeling. Never hugged, never loved, just the linely girl no guy tries to love.
