About the Poem

When you know someone loves you, you feel special, wanted, but you don't feel that way towards yourself so you don't understand how they feel. When that someone doesn't love you anymore you crave that love you couldn't understand even more.

A Few Visitor Comments

Short and beautiful. I can relate to it with ease. Keep writing.
I thought this was touching, even though it was short. That's the thing about short poems, though, they're the best ones out there. This touches me because I feel ugly every day of my life and it hurts to feel that way. To feel you're not loved and to feel that no one could ever find themselves to be with you. I love your poem and I am definetly going to remember it for the rest of my life.

Only Wish

Tell me what you saw was beautiful
Only wish I could see myself that way
Something made your heart ache
Only wonder how you could've felt,
But now it's faded, I feel uglier than before.
