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?

Most of these simple poems that may or may not be low quality recieve so many comments because they are highly controversial topics world wide. weather or not you believe this poem was produced with proper "craftmanship" or "creativity" and "originality", this writer's objective was to reach readers and others that have either felt this pain and conflict or can relate to this type of situation. simply put, I believe this was very succesful. Good job kid.

That is very deep with emotion. I know how it feels to want somebody to miss and to know when it's gone. But luckily I found someone that I can miss and I will never know when he is gone.

"Even though you'd hurt my feelings, I'd still forgive you. Even if you don't love me, I'd still reach my hand to you. Even if you're gone, I'd still wait for you. Even if you break my heart, I'd still say, I love you."

This is absolutely beautiful, and i feel your pain.... You are an amazing writer.... keep it up :)

Heres a riddle:
It is what it is
but it can't be what it already has been
and couldn't have been what it will be.
What is it?
