I dont Crave Red Roses

I don’t crave red roses to show how you care
Because I need to know if loving me is too much to bare
Can you be there for me in my time of need?
Or are you going to abandon me out on the street?

Is your love pure or is it fake?
Do you enjoy watching my heart break?
These tears I’m crying are for you
And I don’t know exactly what to do.

Am I a rose petal you tore off a rose
Or am I whole with you so close?
I desire it to be a whole one, can’t you see
How much your love means to me

I’m nothing without you but I want the truth
Do you enjoy watching me alone in this booth?
Hoping I’m right and your love is true
Because I don’t know what I would do without you.

I think the rythem could have been a little better, but I also think that you sent out a real message. I felt like I know for sure you have felt this way before. Keep writing.

Yes, you can feel the insecurity of the situation through this poem, and the comparison with rose and rose petal is lovely. But the rhyming of booth and truth is a little awakward. On the whole, a nicely executed poem! :)
