Bleh... - Poem by Kim Phan

Love is here,
Love is there,
Everywhere in the world.
But around me there is nothing,
Nothing but emptiness and hatred.
No one's around for me when I need it,
No one helps me when I'm down,
Why can't I be loved like others?
Why do people treat me so differently?
I want my life to change,
But I'd rather die to see if anyone really cared.

    well i can see every poem you right seems to come straight from your heart with real emotions, what i find a major coincidence is that every single poem you wrote reminds of the situation i am in right now, and odd enough the girl that causing me this pain has your same name, I'm hoping it's just a mere coincidence.

    I fully understood what your feelings, but I bit self-pitying I feel.
    No other point of view? Nothing? Very one dimensional poem, despite this, a nice display of emotion.

    write the way u want to write not the way Poetry Hound wants u to write. ur poem is inspiring. strong emotions make the best kind of poetry, without them a poem would be bland and meaningless, this poem shows a lot of heart. (Report)Reply

    Strong emotion, but I'm not sure that automatically makes it poetry. I've been in the same place as you. Lots of people have. Help me look at it in a more personalized (poetic) way. Thanks. (Report)Reply

    What you don't want is indifference, hate you could handle if necessary.
    Reading your work it is extremely unlikely that indifference would find its way to you.
    So, since YOU are the love potion number one, all you need to do is give your soul
    some slack, so it can express itself in your poetry and love will surround you. You will notice its presence even with your eyes closed.
    So, chin up, chest out (even if they are not that big) and sing along with Louis Armstrong....'what a wonderful world...'
    Best wishes,
