Love Doesn't Exist

Love Doesn't Exist

A Poem by The Watcher

"I Love You"
A phrase I seldom hear,
And one that never lasts.

I'll admit, I'm not really worth love,
Or even friendships for that matter.
I guess I'm just not social enough.

No matter how hard I try to keep them alive,
All of my friendships will fade away.
It's no wonder why I doubt people.

People don't like me at all, I get that.
Girls or guys, the hatred flows on.
Even before they really know me.

So yeah, I've given up on close friendships.
And I've given up on finding love too.
Because for an unfortunate few, they don't exist.

I can hear the "people" whine about this now.
"Don't give up, have faith..." Blah, blah, blah.
Talk is bullshit, so it's easy for you to say.

I'm tired of chasing something that doesn't exist.
Love is Waldo and friendship is Sasquatch.
I'll spend the rest of my life searching.

But in the end, I'll never find these things.
So why do I bother to keep searching?
I don't know...

Love doesn't exist.

Its honest, sincere, raw and uncensored. If anyone says anything negative then they are just in denial of life and how it really works. You have been burned too many times. I understand. Write whatever you want to write...I loved it. Thank you.

Nicely written. The emotions within each line are rather strong, though it comes across as subtle and barely-there.

Also, I think lots of people can relate to this, despite you believing otherwise.
I for example do. Though with me, I am quite aware that Love exists. I see it.
It just seems to repel me like we're the same sides or poles of a magnet. And it feels like it'll always repel me. like this is just nature. like this is how its supposed to be - like this is just fact - that it was never meant for me to feel in the first place.

I feel the exact same way as you explained here sadly. I wish other people would understand this as well. Good job.

You are welcome...:)...................
You know, even though more of a rant then a poem, I actually really enjoyed this. I feel very chill, in the sense that (even though some of it seemed that way) I didn't just read something angry. Reading this I feel a huge level of acceptance not only from the writer towards love, but from the reader towards the author. I think we've all at some point or another been down a road that spirals, but the way you've put it down, its so calming. Thanks a lot for that man.
