Iíve told myself a hundred times,
Or, maybe even more.
Iíd finally learned the lessons
Which this romance held in store.
Love is for some people-
It fits them like a glove,
But maybe Iím the kind of guy
Who isnít meant for love.
It seems that all I ever do
Is make somebody mad...
Instead of bringing happiness
I always leave them sad.
Iíd like to be a happy man-
I guess I donít know how-
Iíve never been less happy, though
Than I am feeling now.
Iíve hurt enough to satisfy-
My masochistic heart-
If I must hurt, Iíll hurt alone-
Itís better if I part.
I think my tears might fill a lake
If they all showed outside,
Iíve had about all I can take
Of all this macho pride.
They tell me that a man donít cry-
And maybe that is true-
But if it is, I have a secret
To confess to you.....
I guess in truth Iím not a man
Perhaps I am a worm-
But if you really want a laugh
Just sit and watch me squirm.

I don't think you are a worm, but you are down to earth, and that's what makes your poetry so appealing.

Okay. I was sad until the end of the poem. Good job describing how I think we've all felt at times.

Well done my friend. I am never sure if you write from your life or are just simply brilliant. (or both)I just have a couple of comments on the content. I believe that a real man knows how to cry and when it is appropriate to show vunerability.

The other thing is this. I believe that there is no one that isn't made for love. There is always someone that can  love so freely and completely that the anger becomes temporary. We are all human and we all make mistakes. True love is about accepting someone for who they are and letting them  be that person. Acceptance and forgiveness.....Patience and understanding.

Ok...so I said more then my 2 cents worth.
