"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee


He loves me
(…)
He shows his affection for me
(When I look pretty.)
(When other guys notice me.)
He smiles the perfect grin JUST for me
(If no other girls are around.)
He texts back the SWEETEST things
(When he's not too busy.)
He flirts with me a lot
(If I'm not sweaty from soccer.)
He caresses my face
(As long as I don't have any pimples.)
He hugs me and holds me
(When his friends aren't around to see.)
He'd NEVER use me
(Unless it was for something he REALLY wanted.)
He shows that he loves me
(Just never in public …)
He makes me feel loved
(When he has time …)
He loves me.
(He loves me not.)


The author's comments:
This is something I had to write to realize that I was in a relationship with a warped view - I tried to ignore the bad things and make excuses because I wanted SO BADLY for him to be the one

Thanks :D I can see how the title would lead you to think that :) This poem is just sort of a more detailed version of that, in a way.

This is so cute and really demonstrative of the craziness and confusion that accompanies ~love~

This was great! From the title, I pictured a girl with a flower in her hand, plucking off its petals one by one going, "He loves me, he loves me not." But you surprised me!

Wow! I am so honored you chose my poem for your poetry selection. It was in the February Issue of 2011, page 42 if you need to know that.

I love your poem! I can't even express in words how much I love this. I love it so much that I'm using it in my poetry selection for speech and debate, which is allowed since it's a published piece of poetry. But I need the ISBN number to prove it. So can you tell me what issue of Teen Ink this was published in?

I like how you put the truth in parentheses! I like this a lot
