What's Wrong With Me?

What is it that you see, that you don't want in me?
What is it that you see, that keeps you walking past me 
Without stopping
What can it be, that takes your eyes so long to notice me
What is it indeed, I ask of me

What could it be, what is it about me
That you don't want to see
Are you embarrassed of the outer me
Afraid to let the world know you discovered my beauty
The beauty that runs so deep within me
Why can't you realize
The love that I give only comes once in a lifetime
What do I see in me

A lonely soul, hurt and alone
A beautiful butterfly with a broken wing
An aching heart longing for love
A gift sent from heaven up above

My kind of love, just doesn't exist
For I am unique in all that's within
What could it be, I just keep wondering
What makes it so hard for you to love me

Where are the signs that say hurt me today
Where are the possibilities of a brighter day
My lonely heart continues to wallow in wondering
Will love ever exist for me?

    I still feel the same way I did last time I read this - You have a beautiful heart and I want to thank you for your comments especially the last one - I cried so hard when i wrote that poem that it made me sick for days - my poem angels in the wind is about the same girl - she overdosed on heroin - we were going to be married in just a couple of weeks - I found her and tried to save her but she died in my arms - Nothing mattered after that - This poem was a I'm finally ok again to her, God Bless

    Love is a fickled thing, but when it comes along, it is the grandes thing on earth. It's out there and everyone is sure to find it.

    Dear, sweet friend, the problem is not within you. Too much beauty and love pouring out of you. Sometimes, it's all about timing, all about the journey, too. This person is obviously nowhere near being right for you. One day, someone will be so lucky to share your love, and they will make you feel and see the beautiful person you are. Trust me, it will happen, so you just keep the faith and know it, deep inside. Love, Shar

    A heart touching emotional write my dear Tyesha. I feel you pain. I so agree with Laurie's comment. Someone more deserving of you will come along and this fool will fade into the background. You deserve much more. ~Belinda~

    Ty ya darl'in girl ya. A beautiful poem you did write. The complexity of the pain felt when you feel rejected bites! If you are attached to an amoeba I pray freedom into your life so that your broken butterfly wing grows stronger and glides you to someone deserving of your kinda love. loveudo, Laurie

    Child, we ALL felt this youthful angst. It's part of being young. Hell, I was 50 before I met my true twin soul. Dump him and move on. Your desperate attempts to make him love you only make you less desirable in his eyes. Men are like the bus, sweetheart, another one comes along every 15 minutes. :-) ***Danielle***

    Tyesha - Awh - I would venture to guess that the problem doesn't exist within you I reckon he has the problem - I realize I've only known you for a short while but in the length of that time I have come to love the bright and loving person that you are - When my wife and I met we had gave up on love - I never planned to love again - hell everyone i loved broke my heart - well to be honest twice i was the one who broke two of the hearts - God Bless you, YF4L, MJ
