For Me It's Enough

For Me It's Enough

A Poem by Heromen Selena
"

Loving someone who doesn't love you back....

"
Was he looking at me?
No I don't think so
Why would he want to
He did say we were just friends

But, there's so much more to it
I can feel it
Right in my heart
That there's love here

Does he feel it too?
No I don't think so
Why would he want me
I'm not as good as the other girls

But, there are times when
He looks at me with those eyes
And I feel like I can fly
A love that is mutual

What should I do?
I don't want to stay this way
It hurts badly to stay away
Though he doesn't want me around

But, when I'm with him
No one can bother me
Because he makes me happy
Just to be near him

That is enough for me.

This is perfect!!! I know exactly what you mean here, I've felt it often enough before:) Beautiful work!!!!!! I especially loved the lines, "when he looks at me with those eyes/ and I feel like I can fly" eyes are the windows to the soul, and thus they attract the ones who seek to make them whole.... Anyway, brilliant:)

Sadly, sometimes we have to deal with being "just friends" with someone, despite every secret feeling that makes us see actual love. I remember in highschool, I fell in love with my best friend sophomore year and we grew so close and I constantly told myself that we were actually in love when I knew he had no feelings for me...though at times, he would act like he was interested in me & I knew a relationship would be so good between us if we decided to go through with it. I watched as he dated other girls and it hurt, but I felt that as long as we were still close friends, that would be enough for me. I was in love with him for 7 years and it drove me crazy at times...the things I would fantasize to myself, the dreams I would have about it...but ultimately, I grew to respect that his feelings weren't the same towards me and I forced myself to finally move on after too many long years of deciding to wait for him to realize my love for him was true, that he would come to me one day & admit he was always in love with me and that he didn't want anyone else. This brought back some deep, comforting memories for me. Great write full of powerful emotion. Keep it up!

How did you do loving someone who does not love you back ?
I did not find the answer to that one, but
How did you do as a writer ?
Fantastic, amazing, spectacular, sweet, gorgeous and more.

Aw that's so sweet :) thank you for reading!
Unrequited love is such a b***h, isn't it? I enjoyed the simplicity and honesty of the thoughts played out.

"Does he feel it too?
No I don't think so
Why would he want me
I'm not as good as the other girls"

You captured this sense of self-doubt and unworhiness quite well.

"That is enough for me" is the lie we tell ourselves. Great job.

The thoughts are true, and poem is on the mark. Now you ? I have taught my daughters to say No, simple from their center, No is No , not maybe. Then I ask them to think, live,be, walk with resolve , If they lived their life this way a man their man,would stand beside and with them. and if no man appeared ? Then They know the difference between being alone and lonely too.

I understand. This poem was focused on one emotion basically, that's why it seems so one sided. Turn.. read more
