Missing Something

By , Burlington, NC
There are many things in my house
There are games
There's a computer
There's a tv
There's a piano
There are books
There's a phone
There's a guitar
There's a writing book
There's a drawing pad
There's a stereo
There is a baketball net outside
There are barbells

But I hate it all
It's all worthless
It's all boring
I can't use any of it
I want the one thing I can't have
And right now
I want you and miss you

I'd give it all away
I'd live in poverty
To be with you

it is so sweet and simple. i like how you list so many things that could serve as entertainment, but they just aren't anything compared to the person you want and miss.

Thanks, I guess it comes with the job of being a hapless romantic.

"I'd give it all away

To be with you."
An excellent line. I love it, my favorite part of the poem.

We liked your poem but maybe you could shorten the list of objects that you have.
