About the Poem

This is a poem I wrote several years ago about a young relationship that I had. Even though I was very young I was very much in love. More so than he...

Stop Looking at Me

I've been in love before
I was hurt worse than you'll ever be
I've been alone and lonely
Would you please stop looking at me?
I know what beauty is
I know how to get everything that I really need
I'll never settle for less
Would you please stop doing this deed?
I have kissed enough men
I have felt love so gentle and true
I remember how beautiful the feeling
Why can't I stop looking at you?
I hate the way you walk
How cocky and so sure
And I hate how you make me feel so insecure.
I don't fall for guys like you
I can't even remember the color of your eyes
I only know that they move me
And when you're not here the feeling dies.
It doesn't make any sense to me
Everyone keeps telling me what you are
God, I know it
I can see!
But you are the one thing on my mind
And I try so hard to forget you
But when you reach for me
I know that I will always let you.

i like this poem it opens your eyes looking towards the world nice poem.
Wow, that's all I can say. I love this poem very much. Thank you for sharing.
it's funny how an ex lover can have such a hold over you. Just when you think you're getting over her . she comes and tells you she still cares for you. Conflicting emotions wash over all over again & hell is your accomdation again. Thanks for the poem . :)
Good job! This was so good. I know how it feels when you don't want to fall. yet sometimes you just can't help it.
Absoultly Beautiful
