They say that love is blind
That my heart it will one day find
Not seeing my major imperfection
Love will break through the rejection

I dare to say that love can see
Everything that's wrong with me
My weight and my depression
Haunting me like an infection

Love sees everything that's wrong
Ignoring the areas which I am strong
Love is a horrible, wretched thing
Only pain and heartache will it bring

Or maybe, just maybe they were right
And true love has no earthly sight
For when it comes walking my way
It looks right past, to my dismay

In loves eyes I don't even exist
I am but a spectre in the mist
Fading away to whence I came
Love never even knew my name

I love the last stanza and that last line is a killer! I'm wearing a name tag from now on so love will know my name!  This is very good, young sir! You get better with age... ha! You're only 17..what will you be like at 30!?

hoot_owl_rn- Thank you, and maybe if you come back and reread it you will see the last stanza   You replied about a minute before I finished editing it with the last stanza.

Poet deVine- Greying and fat most likely   But yea, I know what you mean, and thanks  

Balladeer- Thank you

mistikman...listen to me here...


Staying Home

Do you ever wonder why they say
you fall in love when, really, you fly?
The falling part comes
when you must say goodbye.

Love is a part of life
as life is part of death
here it comes again and again
pumping you up then stealing your breath.

I can't count how many times I've fallen
in love...or is that flown?
well, either way, with someone or alone
a lesson I haven't, till now, been shown...

inside of you is where love is best known...
and there's no sense running away from home.

passing shadows- That is an excellent poem. I seem to be falling all the time though. I have yet to spread my wings and fly. Thank you.

Excellent poem! Love, true love will come, sooner or later, often not soon enough to please anyone! True love takes no account of imperfections. That's the key to look for!

   Mistikman, this is such a powerful piece of writing, and something so many people can relate to, I think.
   Love, to me, is drawn to the beauty that is shining from within you. Love recognizes and illuminates further that beauty, that presence within.
   There have been times when I haved looked in the mirror and was able to see very little of who I really am...it was as if I was invisible, and it was because I "felt" invisible, and used, and uncared for. It is something that I still have to consciously remind myself of at times...that I am not invisible, and that I am okay and will "be" okay. And so must you, Mistikman. You are  going to be okay, and you are definitely a beautiful person, in my eyes. (And you write some exceptional poetry!)

Oh dear, what a poem.  Can't say I don't feel this way myself at times.  Sometimes i think love is merely myth.  Even still, I hope I'm wrong.  Good poem, Mistikman.

This is a great poem. I can relate to it in some ways, but I can't say that I think that love is a terrible thing. I think it's wonderful, and maybe that's worse, in a way. Anyway, I hope you find love soon.

Your friend,
LoveBug

Lovebug- well, I didnt mean love was wretched in of itself, I merely meant the way it was treating me made it seem as such. Thanks for reading
