I know it's not my usual genre, but here is the story:I am madly in love with a girl, she also happens to be a very good friend, and in her words im "her best guy friend" and "basically like a bother" and everytime she says it she kills me, i swear, when she talks about guys it makes my cheeks burn and my blood boil, and this is how i feel right now, but i'll wait, as i have, for her to see.

Why Can't You See?

How can you be so blind
When I'm standing right before you?
How can you not see
How much i adore you?

I've been here for years
Helping and waiting
Through smiles and tears
But my hope is fast fading

When life has trapped
the road before you
I place a pillow
there to catch you

With you unknowing
I take the hit again
to keep your smile
ever glowing

I try and fight
with all of my might
to protect you
from the dark of night

but one day soon
I will be gone
and you will find
you have no one
I can't seem to stress
my love enough
i cant keep you protected
life is too rough
Why cant you see?
I look to you,
just look to me!

  You were not kidding when you said that you had a similiar situation going on. I really loved your poem and you mannaged to hit the nail on the head as to what I am feeling. I would like to offer you a suggestion though on the very end. Your whole poem is grouped into four lines execpt the last stanza... Maybe you could go from...

A day soon, I will be gone
and you will there all alone
I can't seem to stress
my love for you enough

I cant keep you protected
With all of this distance
when your life is too rough
And things have gone wrong

Why cant you see?
All the time, everytime
I look to you,
just look to me!

  I like that. I HATE the subject (because i can relate completely to every word), but you said it perfectly. I would say that maybe you should tell her... but even I dont take my own advice, so nevermind. Anywhoooo I like the way you word things. Good luck with everything. I hope it all works out. Great job

  yea i think love sucks. actually... i don't really believe in true love. lol
well, if you REALLY want her to know how you feel, just tell her. makes life simple. i'm a simple minded simpleton. and i know life isn't that easy, but that's all i have to say! for all you know, she could like you and is afraid to admit it.
about the actual writing part... the rhyming and flow weren't really consistent and that made it harder to read, but the feelings and story behind this one make it a really nice read.
write on and speak up!

  damn...I hate these kind of situations; but I love these kinds of poems. I've been in the situation quite a few times...and I've even been in your place once or twice, and really, it's true, it does not get any easier. Not unless you really make it happen. I'm not saying give up hope, I'm saying keep pushing and keep a positive outlook but don't expect anything...or you'll be crushed even more.

Now about the poem. I really liked it, it a roughness to it, but it wasn't an all bad one it actually worked for you. The last stanza I'd say kind of threw me for a second, but then it pulled me right back in. It's got some serious emotion in there too, and that's what is truly important. I'd say, as I would say with everyone and anyones writing, let it sit for a week or two, and go back and maybe revise a little, bring out it's full potential.

I also loved how the rhyming scheme was kind of out of wack...Idk why, but it really worked for you.

Good luck and great poem,

-Miss M.

"i cant keep you protected
life is too rough"

  The end kinda caught me off guard, the way it breaks away from the pattern you start out with, standard 4-line rhyming stanzas. But I did like that, my figurative impression was a sort of sharp edge, I think it's effective in that way. sort of getting faster, more intense like that. You should give it to her...see what happens.
