Not There

I stare at you across the room
I see your warming face
I try to see the inside you hide
Your feelings I try to embrace

I realize as I look at you
As I just sit and stare
I can see you perfectly clear
But for some reason you're not there

I see your eyes, I see your face
But yet I can not see
Your loving inside that you had
I can't see your personality

I realize how much that you have changed
How you don't seem to care
I stare at you across the room
But yet you are not there

I think this poem is one of alot of poems i read that is true to me. I've had this feeling so many times. When you see someone and you think the person you see is there but when they say something, see how they act, it's not them at all.

I'm well over my teens and i still go through this type of stuff all the time. Especially because I'm single and dating. Some People just don't realize how important it is to be yourself.

hey this poem was great sometimes its hard to get how you feel into words but you did it wonderfully. keep writing your great!
Bubzarina
This poem has really inspired me. I know EXACTLY how you feel. For someone I had been friends with since the day we meet, he had liked me secretly since that day. 2 years after the best friendship we started going out. Then he suddenly started avoiding me and one day broke it off. I was heart broken! I really thought I knew him and he once made me warm inside and now hes just so cold. I really miss our friendship but nothing has ever been the same since!
keisha
i liked it and i showed me that me and my man arent so good together anymore because we have changed and not just him.
olga
I like it very much and it has things that alot of people could really relate to. This is far of all a good poem to someone that is just not feeling you the way he should.
