Do you what's its like to be so trapped?
To feel so lost?
To feel so alone?
To be without arms to lie in,
To be without someone to be there,
Someone to kiss me,
Someone to love me.

Do you what its like to watch,
All the couples kissing,
All the couples cuddling,
All couples slow dancing,
All the boys asking girls,
All the pretty girls getting every guy that they want.

When I know,
It won't last but a few weeks,
Maybe even a few days.

I want to know what it feels like to be in love,
I want to be the girl every girl wants to be,
I want to love with someone who loves me the same way,
I want it to last forever,
Not just a few days.

I must walk alone,
Trapped all alone in a couple's world,
I must cry myself to sleep every night,
I must spend my time putting myself down,
Feeling like I don't look like her,
I don't reach up to his standards.

Maybe one day,
A guy will see,
The light that shines through me,
Maybe one day,
One of the guys in my life,
Will wake up,
And realize I'm right here waiting.

But till then I'm single,
And waiting.
I acutally am in a relationship it will a be a year this friday. But I was thinking about all my friends who want a boyfriend or just can't stick with one guy. It also reminds me of the 10 months I spent single between Michael (ex) and Patrick.

15 isn't really that bad not to have never had one. You still have a lot ahead of you

yea we've all been there. It will be ok tho, most of ur friends relationships will be over soon. And when I was 13 (wow i feel like an old lady) i didn't think i'd ever get a boyfriend. and poof! I have one now, it really wasn't that much longer.

I'm...20, I feel incredibly old and the closest I've come to a relationship was a guy who's just wanted to use me for sex. The loneliness kills...and I wonder this everyday. I'm pretty sure it won't change..but hey, whatever. I'll live.

Good poem <3

Good luck to you.
I'm 21 and still single. I don't really care, it might be to do with enjoying being single a lot ( I am not a lovey dovey person and relationships don't appeal to me atm) and being VERY picky :P
I hope you find love one day
remember: all men are gits
(not really :P)

OK...so I'm a sixteen-year-old high school graduate, now 17, in college, never had a prom, never had a real boyfriend...UGH YOU ARE SUCH A GOOD WRITER BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL.

BTW if there's a guy about to read this and you're located around the Nashville area and you're single...oh yeah... :P

Anyway, darling, I'm sorry about that. You really are a fantastic writer. FANTASTIC.
