Love

He was the man that nobody wanted and he wasn't quite sure why
there always seemed to be some features lacking or she always seemed to want some other guy.
He always said or did something wrong not really knowing why.
He had failed so many times before why should he even try.    
Sooner or later each successive one would walk right out that door and none would wear a smile.
Sometimes a few would look back and reconsider for awhile.
But he was like the fool on the hill all alone up there.
Nobody seemed to want him and nobody seemed to care.
And even if they liked him in some ways
true love was never there anyway.
He wasn't sure if he even had any love to give away.
But he thought that love was his goal.
Anything less and they could pack up and go.
Otherwise they would only be in the way.
What if true love came to town and he was busy playing around
with some other girl who didn't really care.
Perhaps she only wanted to use him and later on down the road she couldn't wait to lose him.
Wait a minute, your probably saying by now, and you probably figured it out way before me anyway.
This guy has destroyed every relationshiop that ever came his way.
It's true I've looked almost everywhere searching for someone to care.
I've collected phone numbers left and right
hoping one would be miss right.
I've been selfish and full of pride but now I know only one can share my ride.
I don't want to be the fool on the hill.
I want to know that Love is real.
Must I spend the rest of my life sleeping alone each night?
Can I learn to open my heart and let love come in.
Is it possible to give so much love back that my sweethearts head will spin?
To be quite honest I don't know how to succeed.
I only know I want to sincerely try
to openly share my Love before I die.

James,

Glad to see you work this out on paper first.  When it happens and the right one comes along, you'll know, my friend.  Hang in there....good things come to those who wait as they say.  I hope you find the love you are looking for.  You deserve it!!  Great writing...I love it when it comes from the heart like this.

Confidence in you.....and all the rest will come along James.  As long as you are you; and you are, the best you that can be.....that's all that matters.  She will see it.

Hugs,

SBJ...
you are going to know this kind of love...
your heart is now ready for it and when it finds you...or you find it...
it will be right.
some times it takes a little to get over things that hurt us...
but it will be worth the wait...
wonderful soul searching shared here.
take care sweet poet-

 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.

Jmlee so true often love does stare us right in the face the funny thing is love is like a gift we didn't even know we have recieved. Only most of the time it's like a bird the time we discover it was there all along. To love and be loved is one of the greatest gifts we could ever have. I enjoyed your poem very much.

This is a great piece and I can definitely feel what you're saying. Thanks for being very honest about your love situation. Like the other poets said about loving yourself first... you'll find yours one day, you just have to keep looking. She may be right under your nose and you may not realize it. One again great piece!

This was great! I am trying to figure
out this love thing myself so I can't
really impart onto you any wise words of
wisdom lol but I will share with you
what I've learned so far. Be patient...
don't look so hard for love. It will
find you when you least expect it. Just
open your heart. It seems you are ready
and willing so when Miss Right does
come into your life...you will KNOW.
till then just keep your head up high
and believe in YOU. The rest will fall
into place. Take care sweetie!

Thank you Amazon, Nate, and Aimster for your wonderful comments.  Much appreciated.  
Amy I can understand the be patient part.
I have come to the conclusion that I need to work on becoming friends before I run with the Love part.  James
