Why do we want what we cant have?
The untangible.
And why are the good ones already taken?
The forbidden.
Well what am I?
Just stuck in the middle
between a rock and a hard place,
Between a stone and a beautiful face,
A beautiful body,
A beautiful mind.
And every word you say
seems to stop time,
or at least my heart.

Why am I alone?
The unwanted.
Why do I with so much love get turned away?
The unrequited.
And who are you,
that you reject me?
Just a beautiful face,
A beautiful soul,
but an ugly way of thinking.
You never even took the time
to really get to know me.

A beautiful girl.
A beautiful smile.
A beautiful heart,
that keeps beating.
Beautiful on the inside,
but broken and fallen apart.
Damaged, diseased.
A frightful work of art.
But theres beauty in disaster,
after the storm.

My every flaw,
exquisite, unique,
an imperfect form.
You cant begin to know me.
I cant begin to know you.
A beautiful tragedy
waiting to dawn.

      thank u nellieanna, all my poetry is from the heart, how i feel, and what ive experienced, for myself, or seen or heard of through others and i write about it. this one definitely not fictional poetry. except for the beautiful tragedy waiting to dawn, because im not seeing the guy I am writing this poem about coming to me any time soon if ever the way i wish he would. im glad u liked it. and that u dont think its trite lol. thanks for the comment.

      Nikki - this one is my favorite so far. You have a gift. If you mean what you express, though, you must learn detachment. Nothing is fixed and fastened. If we have it now, that is abundance. Holding on means it wants to not be there. Might as well release it graciously with a good and happy heart. Perhaps you know that and write fictional poetry. In any case, I like your poetry and I confess I'm not an easy-to-win fan of others' poetry, which all too often comes across as trite. Yours does not.

      Maybe we want we can not have because it is not good for us. I never know whats good for me and what is not. Lately I have been figuring if I really really want it, and it seems like it is really really complicated to get it, then it is probably not good for me. Great poem! Thanks
