First Love

the one i love refuses to love me back
screams with joy to another
and whispers nothing to me
stares and mumbles
something uncomprehendable

But i long for his attention
seek for his voice
found his tolerance
and was rewarded with his vengence

i silently beg
turn around and notice
the girl sitting beside you
evoke the pain that strangles mine heart

    I can understand the pain....

    Wow, such a good write. The anguish felt for a love un-returned is so evident. I've read similar poems but there is a real difference in the way you have expressed yourself here. John

    Your writes are so sad. Loving someone including allowing them the chance to be happy with the person of their choice while we step aside and wish them all life's blessings.

    There is little we can do to make someone love us, but showing love to them is a good start, Tumelo. I do hope you find your feelings are soon returned. Very heartfelt poem! Love, Carolyn

    ao! thats a nice poem AMZO, but it seems like first love doesn't look good for you. PS the home of creative pens.
