About the Poem

This is a poem about loving someone so much, but not having the feelings returned.

Love Maze

As I walked down the crowded halls,
I saw him standing there.
He was flirting with his girlfriend,
Her hands massaging his hair.

I can just hear the conversation now:
"Are ya gonna be at the game?" he asks.
"I wouldn't miss it for the world,
I'll be sitting with Brittany on the grass."

I take one last glance,
And then turn my head away.
My heart can't take this carnival ride,
For my emotions tend to stray.

If you haven't caught on yet,
Let me fill you in:
The guy I long for is taken,
And I'm left in the garbage bin.

I see him every day in school,
And he should be able to notice me.
But somehow out of his busy schedule,
He finds the time not to open his eyes and see.

He did once talk to me,
He tapped me on the back.
But his eyes filled with questioning,
Asked for the class movie, if I had a snack.

Does he do this on purpose?
Or is he just to blind to see?
My head says I should forget him,
My heart says he belongs to me.

Now maybe I'm just being normal,
Or I'm just in a mindless daze.
I feel like a naive little mouse,
Trying to find its way through a complicated maze.

What is this and where does it come from?
Does it come from above?
The only explanation that comes to my mind is,
It's that exotic thing called love.

Wow. This is the only word I can come up with. I'm definitely impressed. It's a very accurate rendition of what I'm going through, however, I'm a guy, and it's directed to a girl in my case. Love the poem. Perhaps I'll see more of your work somewhere? Keep it up!

wow i really love this poem. its exactly what i feel. i really like this guy and his girlfriend just happens to be one of my best friends. she lied to me and broke her promise that she would never have anything to do with him. so i see him at school everyday and it breaks my heart to see them together. you did a wonderful job on this poem it absolutly beautiful.
Cris
I love this poem because I could relate to it. I'm sure most people feel this way about someone but just never say anything. I mean you can't help but love someone. It does feel bad not knowing how they feel about you.
bridgid
i loved the poem! i can so relate to it. the guy i like, even though he knows i like him, just seems to be so oblivious to it sometimes. it drives me crazy, cause its like hes just all of a suden forgotten how much i love him! keep up the good work!
laura
omg! this is exactly what is happening to me, except the guy duznt hav a girlfriend. his name is joseph. i am totally into him, and all he does is flirt with all the other girls in front of me. it makes me feel sooo bad. :'( this makes me hate him soo much, but still like him at the same time.

Crystal
i see this was written in 1999, but i was there, that was me in high school. now that crush is my friend. he now knows i have liked him for four years. (all throughout high school) and i am waiting for somthing to happend between us. i now feel like i am in love with him. i need to tell him this now. its hard to go through high school with that crush. but things have a way of working themselfs out.
Michelle
This is such a great poem. I'm not going through it now, but i have many times. i hope if this is what it's like for you that he sees what hes missing and finally notices you!
ashley

Josh
This poem reminds me of myself except there is a girl i want that is alreeady taken.
Ariana
I know how Amber feels. It's hard to go to school and see the guy you like with other girls. I like this guy named Joseph and he's all I think about. He knows I like him,but he dosen't care. Hope you get you'r guy Amber.
doodi

This poem love maze is a remakable poem I myself give it two thubs up. This poem realtes to me in a vedry deep way because there is this one boy i like at my school he is so good looking. The only prblem is teh i don't fell like he knows me. I totaly understand this poem and can relate to it my self.
MeMe
I never post comments on anyones poems for I feel that it is unfair to judge anoher wriers work. I must say though you really captured alot of emotion in your lines it really made me feel exactly what you were trying to express thanks for sharing I hope to read more from you.
Tai
That was such a good poem! but why would a guy do sumthing like that to u on purpose. ? If he did, then he's a jerk! but sumtimes we just don't see things, and can be pretty blind. too bad he's taken ^o~
there
i think that poem is so cool. that happen to me befor and we end up dating aint that cool
kriss
i love this poem because it is so true. i always find a guy then meet his girlfriend. then no matter what i always see them together. it hurts. thanks for writing this poem.
Karri
I can totally relate to your poem. I think all of us have gone through something similar. Who hasn't liked someone only to find they were taken or liked someone else?
sarah
oh my god that is exactly the same way how i feel about a boy in my class and school called daniel and i so badly miss him and want to be wiv him!
WeS

Ashley
I loved the poem! i'm going through the same thing for about 3 years now. I feel like a little tiny mouse. Good Luck!

This poem is great. It describes the "dorks" who want to be in love, but they are to "dorky" to be liked. Its not fair for us.

I think that this is a wonderful poem. I, too, am an aspiring poet, but I just haven't gotten the nerve to submit one on-line. I think that you are very brave to submit your poems in a place where everyone can read them and judge them. KUDOS to you!
