I Can'T Help Myself... - Poem by Amanda J. Schmidt

I am not supposed to want him.
I am not supposed to care,
and yet I spend my time dreaming of all that we could share.
I am not supposed to think about him
or wonder where he has been,
but no matter how much I fight it,
thoughts of him sneak in.
I am not supposed to ponder where he is each nite,
but he creeps into my vision when the stars shine bright.
I am always wishing he was here,
I hunger for a kiss,
and I long to draw him near.
I am not supposed to imagine where he is
and what he does.
I am not supposed to need him.
I know these things. I do.
And yet I can't help myself
because I fell in love with him.

    you should study your thoughts. and think before putting pen to paper. This must be juvenilia at its worst. (Report)Reply

    I know it is hard to write a good love poem but there is not a single original or redeeming thought in the entire poem at all (Report)Reply
