Need Love?

See it but never feel it.
Get close, only to push it away.
“Don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone”
Epitome of my life.
What is wrong with me?
What makes me so un-lovable?
Can someone remove this defective sign from my forehead,
And replace it with a kiss.
I want more than mediocre.
I want someone to miss.
Do I ask for too much?
Are my requirements unachievable?
My heart remains unconquered, unattained.
I’m tired of fairy tale endings,
Silly thoughts put in my head by unrealistic, but hopelessly believable movies.
They are all the same.
Girl meets boy. Girl messes it up. Boy forgives girl.
Happily Ever After.
At least they let on that relationships have problems.
I want raw, unrelenting love.
The real deal.
No movie, novel, or episode of “Sex and the City” could ever touch.
Left alone, drowning in thoughts,
Who else in the world could need love,
Like I need love?

Love. I don't care what happened or who did it to you. Love anyway.

I really like this one, it brims so warm and unrelenting with feeling.

i really like the idea and the meaning - i thought that it was moving - but i feel like it's a little obvious. personally, i would put more concrete imagery, but i like the ideas and the meaning, and i think it's good. however, it seems to me to be more of an essay or paragraph than a poem. but then again, being me, i like to have my poems have a rhythm, so my style's different than yours. if you want to take a look, the link is: thanks! keep it up!

This is great work. It expresses exactly how I feel. Everytime I let myself like a guy I seem to screw everything up.I feel like its my fault.

i feel the same way. but in a different sense. im a guy. and its like i mess up every relationship i've ever had. in my eyes it's like nothing about me is right. so many people tell me otherwise. and yet the girl i have my heart set on is completely out of reach.

"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in a cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it." - John Lennon

"In my end is my beginning."... - T.S. Eliot

omg, it's like you're reading my mind exactly. this is amazing and i feel the same way too
