People & Love

People & Love

A Poem by {someone:.:unknown}

in the beginning i only wanted more
i only wanted things
and i wanted love.
my necessities became--

as i grew older
reality struck hard.
heartache and misery became chains,
and the lock had no key.
i wanted to be held
and i wanted comfort.

love became somewhat of a blindfold.
it lost it's meaning so many times
because of love--
i lost so many and gained nothing.
because of myself--
i lost everything thus wanted more.

i wanted them--
i wanted things--
i wanted warmth--
i wanted isolation.

people want all sorts of things.
people come up with all sorts of pain,
and of suffering.
the ones who are fortunate always seem to be at a loss,
while the ones who are in pain--
ACTUAL pain--
usually seem to know where to go and what to do.

people don't understand life yet.
people don't know how to live it yet.
i don't understand my heart yet.
i don't know how to love yet.

in the end we are just people.
we all are who we are.
in the end people just need love.
there are no wants--
there is no selfishness in true love.

i need love.
i only needed love in the beginning.
is that selfish of me?
a person among people?

love is not greed,
nor is it lust or gluttonous,
love doesn't require pride.
love hast no envy,
and does not cause anger.
love is no sloth,
love can only be love.

I agree with *Evelen* there are so many emotions. this writing make you want and crave love in my opinion. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and emotions with us :)

I love this poem. SO many emotions running with the words. Love brings illusions of happyness or brings real happyness. Love is just a complete surprize all it's own, and you never know what's going to happen when in love. Well done loved it:)

inside my own lost soul, IN

So i'm a womanly person that enjoys the simplicities of life. i love looking through antique shops, i'm a huge cuddle bug, although i act like a toughy sometimes i still like being treated like a girl.. more..
