See Me

What is it you want from me?
There has got to be something I do not see.
The way you look at her,
to me, I wish you would do the same.
I do not want to be just another girl
on your long list of a game.
What is so different about me
that makes it impossible to see
that I am a real person as well
with feelings
a life...
but still love.
and time
that I want to give to you.

But to you, it is like receiving a single rose
after someone gave you ten dozen.

What makes me different, you may ask.
I am simply

Take a chance on me...
maybe you will see.
That I'm worth another glance,
but I won't give you a second chance.
Now or never.
no time like the present hour.

I just want to know.
what you see,
when you
see me.

"why do you deserve happy ending? Out of seven billion people, someone has to suffer."

After a bad break up recently with a two-year long relationship, I know this feeling and you did a great job putting it into words.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. You playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”.

Your peom was amazing, i loved it and i got how u felt this can speak to so many girls. Great job :)

I have to agree with the addiction. It's a good thing that they don't have AA meetings for peotry addicts.

Look at the stars. they're the same stars as last week, last year, same as when we were kids. When we weren't even born. in a hundred years, no one will ever know who we are, but they'll know those same stars.

I can really relste to this poem a lot! ^_^

mmfdg623 is right. I am always the person a guy looks over so I totally understand. Compare me to my friend We may both be really out going but all the time she outshines me when I stand by her so most of the time guys look over me and unto her and say stuff like "Wow"!!! So I really do understand! You are a GREAT writer! keep up the great work!

This poem really hits close to my heart. Right now I'm in the middle of a situation just like the one you described and it's hard. But he's got a girlfriend so I don't really have a chance. And besides I'm always the girl with her head buried in a book so not many guys notice me anyway. So even if he was single I still wouldn't really have a chance.

I love this poem, and I know exactly what you mean. I am the girl that the guys overlook, especially since my best friend is a lot more outgoing than I am. Keep up the good work.

Thank you all for your kind words. :) You are all truly inspiring.

To EdytD:

I know exactly what you mean. Someday, someone will get it. :) and he will be the "coolest" guy of all.

I liked it, and I can definitely relate - as someone who's priorities are academic, i am often passed over as nobody from the "cooler" guys.
