About the Poem

It's about confusion and not knowing what someone wants from you.

I Do Not Know

I do not know
what makes you smile anymore

I do not know
what you want in me

I do not know
how to act and talk
say I love you

I do not know
what you want me to be.

I do not understand
what has happened here

I do not want
this feeling to die

I do not wish
you to go away

I do not want
to make you cry

I do not know
if I can love you

I do not know
if I'm what you want

I do not want
this feeling to go away

I do not want
to lose this love.

Heartfelt and bittersweet. Wonderful and Honest!
Brought tears to my eyes as it is so relevant to me right now. Wonderful.
I think that this poem is very true to me. I can deffinetly relate to what the poemist is trying to say, I can relate to every word. I would give this poem a 90/100 if i had to grade it. I think it is very apposing.
hi, your poem is a kind, i so do not know i should laugh or cry.
I can sooooo relate to this poem. I am in a situation right now that makes me feel the same exact way!! It's almost as if the feelings are radiating from myself, and not the person who wrote it. It's comforting to know that there is someone else out there who understands.
Is good to find poems thattell about the problems that people have when their in love. Not everything is smooth and sometimes one has to say "I'm sorry" or "What you want from me" as this poem does.
