Mine

What more do you want
What more can I say?
I hate these feelings inside me
Please make them go away..
Look at me the way you used to,
Talk to me like you care
Make notice of all I’d do for you
Even though you’re no longer there.
Am I just not as pretty?
Do I not “fit the look?”
What is it about her
That makes you drop the hook?
I can’t imagine my life alone
Though I know I’ll be just fine
I’ll soon move on and
I will forget about you,
But for now I just wish you were mine.

Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems of 2013?
