I love you. Not you in the mirror

Updated on August 25, 2009

I love you

I love YOU

No not you in the Mirror

But him, he, you!

How is that possible. That can't be true.

Break the glass so I can not see

The girl who is looking back at me

Cause I want to cry with hate felt tears in my eyes

No wonder he doesn't love me

Because I don't love me

He says he loves me

But really does he?

Belle said "Who could ever love a beast"

It's true..Because that's how I feel when I look at you..YOU! In the mirror looking back.

How can you love him,her, or that if you don't have love for yourself

If you can't see love in the mirror then you don't truly feel it for anyone else.

I didn't see a picture more fitting for this hub..then a picture of myself. Its the truth though. You can't love if you don't have self love.

      ...and men love women that love themselves in any way possible, by loving themselves means also they feel good, look good and smell oh so nice!

      I agree with Anath, you have to love yourself first, and people will see it and respond. We sometimes look for perfection in that mirror, (I personally spend a lot of time cleaning it to see can I get myself to sparkle more but naah!)I knew a guy who told me he loved me despite my faults. I told him he was ugly then I thanked him for the touching sentiment! LOL! (I didnt mean it.....much!)

      To love and self respect is most important in life. so love yourself first than love your love one. Thus you will get love twice. Nice poem.

      ohhh. Thank you for the correction

      just caught that.I multitask sometimes and forget to do spell check.

      And I feel it is like that with most people being clingy. But I knew someone who instead pushed people away when they had low self esteem.

      Very true. Many people look to others for love to increase their self esteem. These people tend to be very clingy in regards to relationships.

      btw you mean to say hate filled tears right? Just pointing out a typo.
