Unfelt Love
Author: Mike


One day you'll need me,
As I need you now.
You'll need me to love you
But I'll not know how.

You'll be sitting in tears,
Looking up at me.
Wanting me to comfort you,
Staring expectantly.

You'll fall to the floor,
Broken and bleeding.
You'll expect me to be there
With a kind word, a grin.

As each day passes,
You'll slowly wither away.
And for my love
You'll hope and pray.

But I cannot give what
I do not know.
My love, I cannot give you
But my hate I wil surely show.

How poignant.

I remember you showing me this one before. It's ever so good. I have a strong liking for poems about negative love anyway, haha.

Psh what are you giving me now then ;]. Once again your poem didn't fail to hit me in my heart .

This poem wasn't directed at everyone. Just a few people.

Well if someone tells you they love you,that doesn't necessarily mean that they are expecting anything in return, maybe,just maybe they are letting you know that someone cares about you so you won't feel all

The person didn't tell me they loved me. That's the problem. They're not there for me when I need them most. This poem is basically saying that they're not here for me now, and when they need me I won't be there for them.

unwanted love

This poem is beautifully and I can totally relate to what your writing about. A person who loves someone but their love is not felt back in return and finally when you move on they seem to want you
