Love Me ( a poem)

Surrounded by the crowd,

I see you laugh and smile

from across the room

without me.


It is like that

all the time

to feel alone

in the midst of you.


Words spoken

in the moment

seem a passing fancy

without a base

for me to hold onto.


I am left

with only

fading memories

and promises of next time.


Your words

I want them to be true

to feel the way I do

to think of only me

to live your life on hold

and dream of when

it is just you and me.

A very sad poem indeed. It is awful to feel so alone in a crowd

It's sad, when you're with someone, yet feel so alone...Or they left but you still see them, wishing you were still together..

Very touching poem..

Voted up!
