Can you love me?
Can you make me feel beautiful?
Can you hold me?
Can you cuddle with me?
Can you make me feel worthy, special, wanted and loved?
I want to fall in love.
I want to love & be loved.
blah, blah, blah…
How about every guy I meet is full of crap.
How about no one is really true or worthy.
Everyone just wants something from me.
They just want to see what’s in it for them.
How about forget falling in love.
How about I love myself & enjoy my life & appreciate myself.
I don’t want the drama and the hassle.
I just want to do me.
I am beautiful.
I am sexy.
I am smart.
I am talented.
I am special.
I don’t need a man to tell me that.
If you want me, run a marathon, swim across the ocean, climb to the top of Mount Everest and bring me the moon while you’re at it.
Because I’ve seen it all and heard it all before.
I’m over this lovey dovey, unicorns, pixie dust, butterflies and rainbows bull shit.
a kiss is the secret…kiss everyone you meet in your dreams…and you’ll find love in reality….
Does it ever get lonely just being alone without being in a relationship? I feel the same way you do as far as someone always wanting something from me but to me, having someone who cares for me makes it feel like I matter.
Your words are so poignant… reminding each one of us that we are enough. Thank you
Thank you so much!
You are beautiful. When I looked for love. I couldn’t find it. Love found me. Woman are the key. When they need someone. The door is opened. Always a pleasure to read your words.
Thank you so much. I’m flattered. ❤
You are welcome. Always my pleasure to visit your site.
Keep chasing your dreams, be the YOU & success is not so far.
hmm ❤ Thank you 🙂
Hey Erika. KICK ASS photo. And thanks a lot for stopping by my shared blog. I liked this poem because it sounded very human, exactly what you were thinking 🙂
hmm that’s because its exactly what was on my mind. Thank you so much for reading and your kind words ❤
you are worth it
❤ Thank you.
So true and powerful–great poem and statement!
Thank you so very much!
I am starting to develop this attitude. It is scary and very unlike me hahaha I like it though and I am excited that it is happening now.
I am glad to help! 🙂
That is an empowering shift of perspective Do you see how you could do this? By changing the context, the viewing lens through which you saw situations, other folks and your own self.
Sometime back I had also written a post titled, ” I am…” and I believe it might resonate with you and some of your other readers.
Love to have your comment.
Ah damn, now that’s angst. I love it! 🙂
🙂 🙂 🙂 Thanks!
Beautiful photo and realistic poetry. I believe the key to life is accepting who we are. Thank you for your amazing poetry.
Thank you for reading my friend. ❤
You are welcome.
Learning to love myself and my life exactly as-is was the greatest lesson in love I ever had. Only when I was so contented with who I was, even knowing that I thought it likely I’d be single forever and was absolutely fine with that idea, did I feel whole. In retrospect, it’s pretty clear to me that that’s why I was ready and able to spot and fall in love with a real, fabulous partner who was in essentially the same place emotionally and personally. *That* un-fancy truth is romance worthy of the name. You are fabulous all by yourself. Really! 🙂
wow, that is really inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing your story. ❤
So very to the heart and so very true. Loving ourselves first and nit being fooled by hustlers is how we protect ourselves. Fairy tales never actually have happy endings in the real word. That’s why they are not real. Real live is hard to find, and harder to keep, because live is free, you can’t cage it and if you try, its not live anymore, its just something caught in a trap ., true unconditional live is commitment, sacrafice, honor, trust, failure and triumph, through dedication, by loving and through it. It’s harder to love than to hate, because live attaches ourselves to others and to things even. Hate detatches ourselves from others and things, that’s why anger is part of greiving, so we can let go of what we once may have attached ourselves to. 🙂 love yourself the most , becausr truly our life is the only one we got, the only one we own. I love your writing here, thanks for sharing yourself, its very passionate., most people are out to be loved, to take love from someone else, to get it from someone, a lot of times . They do not know how to give it, for one they think live is just having sex, which is not love, its just sex. Love goes far beyond just our touch…its a feeling that you get even without touch!. 🙂 ❤
I agree with everything you wrote. You are very wise. Thank you for your feedback. ❤
Well I’m glad you understood it, I did not notice all the typos I made. Its because I typed it on my phone….and I was in a rush when I wrote it 🙂 1<3
I understand you perfectly 🙂
How about “Date Yourself” . . . . Date yourself. Take yourself out to eat. Don’t share your popcorn at the movies with anyone. Stroll around an art museum alone. Fall in love with canvases. Fall in love with yourself . . . http://gulzarmanzil.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/date-yourself/
Hell yes. I love this.
Yay!! I know you do my friend 🙂

You are awesome 😉

Thank you!!!!! <3!!!
This is great and your last name is perfect for you. I love how you write and express!
🙂 🙂 Thank you so much! ❤
Love is highly misunderstood in our consumerism culture. I look lovely sand deserve to be loved and to love the person that understands this. The problem is the massive mainstream definition of love, based on pure horse shit. This leaves us the option to play a long drawn out game looking for the right person or giving up. Don’t give up !! Your essence is love based and you’ll be OK playing this dumb game of life because you know it’s a game. 😉
wow, i agree. Thank you so very much. You are very wise. I think the massive mainstream definition for love is “lets see what you got and i’ll trade you what i got.” Not unconditional, honest, i see you as a human being on a sacred journey and i want to use our relationship as a tool to attain the grandest vision of myself & share my completeness with you. The idea of love is misconstrued.
You’re right, well said, love has been reduced to a ‘contract’ between two people, and that obviously is not love.
absolutely. The natural nature of love is free, unrestricted and never ending. Anything that goes against the natural nature of love is not love.
Thank you! ❤
How about i just be your friend and prove my worth? How about i listen to you speak rather that toot my own horn? How about i read u a book, so you can hear my voice and listen to the passion by which i tell the story? Just an idea.. Have a great day!
I like that.
see? not all guys are douche bags… its just a question of finding the prince in a pond full of frogs… there is one out there… trust me on that
hmm, i believe that. I don’t think ever guy is a jerk. I’m just tired of looking.
my beautiful friend: stop looking. the universe will send you the right one when the time is right. in the mean time, live life, enjoy your freedoms and have faith in the universe.
Thank you. I believe you’re right.
Way to speak your mind! And I will say don’t hate on love.. “it is better to have loved and loss, than to never have loved at all.” I used to wear my heart on my sleeve, now I’m very guarded with those that come around. One can take caution, but remember to love here and there. Even if it is a friend! 🙂
I love everyone always. I am love on my core. I am talking about “fake love” and lust that I am not interested in.
You go girl. Fuck fake love.
Exactly! Thank you gorgeous. ❤
I love this post. You have what it takes to write it. I only wish I did.
Thank you so much.
Rumor has it that you’re pretty damn good at expressing yourself. Rumor confirmed.
lol Thanks Tom.
I think so. Thank you. ❤
How about I love myself & enjoy my life & appreciate myself. <– Sounds like your on the right path!
