                       "IRONIC"


   What is ironic?
   Life is!!!
   I want to be loved, but i don't want to love.
   I want to be pushed, but i don't want to be    
     shoved.
   I love you, but i don't want you.
   I need you, but i can't have you.
   I miss you, but i don't miss the days when you
     were here.
   I've cried for you, but there's never been a  
     tear.
   I miss having you in my arms, but i don't miss
     hugging you.
   Maybe you want to be with me, but you're afraid
     to say the truth.
   In order to have one thing you need to be missing
     the other.
   I could be with you, but we still won't have
     eachother.
   How can that be? You might be thinking.
   But i could be drowning without sinking.
   Life is just something crazy.
   It might be sour, but it's still tasty.
   You don't have to have eyes to see what's around
     you.
   But you need to have a heart to say I Love You.
   Just because you're alive doesn't mean you're
     living.
   And sometimes to recieve you don't have to be
     giving.
   Cause you're not giving me your love, but you're
     receiving mine.
   I could be your lover, but i could never take the
     place of your guy.
   So now that you've read this poem don't you agree
     with me.
   The life we live is something ironic... can't you
     see.

You made some very good points here!  I have felt some of these before!  Very interesting read!  Are you by chance, a Capricorn?  LOL  They are known for being "contradictory".....They want one thing, but then another!  I am a Capricorn - and that's how I am!  Makes for a very confusing personality, that I struggle with daily !  hehe  Thanks for sharing this - sending it back for others to read!

This was amazing, I feel like you read my thoughts...you touched on some most interesting points, about wanting one thing then the other or about missing something, but then again, not really.  I loved it!!!

 If you love something, set it free, if it comes back to you, its meant to be...

A most interesting rendering.
I was most struck with :
'Just because you're alive doesn't mean you're living.'
Amen to that.
Nice job.

Truly a heartfelt message I think we all can relate to...the tug of the heartstrings entwined with the hurts it brings.
