"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

No problem! Honestly, no. I had a lot of other poems with more comments and ratings, this one was far from one of my best (in my opinion). It only had like.... 5 comments tops.

I wish I could change the part

 

"He caresses my face

(As long as I don't have any pimples)"

To:

"He caresses my face

(When my makeup is flawless)"

 

so it doesn't seem so juvenile. Pimple is not a very poetic word :P

Yeah, that's pretty much what happened. Kind of written like my train of thought... Thank you so much, sadly, it was straight from the heart </3

Wow. The poem is wonderful.... I like how it's as if you start to notice things (...) then at the end you put it together. (Sadly bad result) I'd give it a 9/10 because it was so real and obviously from the heart.
