Never Been Loved - Poem by Travis Johnson

I never been loved
Don’t even know why
And if you never been loved
Sometimes you wanna cry
I’ve been searching a lot
You know day and night
To find a girl
That can show me what love is like
I know it’s crazy that
I don’t know what love is
So you know I’m truthful
I’ve never even been kissed
Can you tell me?
Can you explain it?
This love thing
And the feelings you get from it
I really hate this
Why do I got to wait so long
On the shelf is a bottle
That’s straight and tall
Its clean and empty
Waiting for love to come a long
And it will stay right there
Until I get love or ‘til I’m dead and gone
My home boy said he needs it
That’s what makes him feel alive
So I’m a dead man walking
Without love that’s how I feel inside
But I don’t know the feeling
So how do I know what’s wrong or right
And my bed stays empty
I don’t know how I sleep at night
I’m in need of love
Until then I’m past empty
I am running on fumes
That person that’s astray-it is me
I must be confused and off-track
It’s just a blur to me
I might have to sit back
And wait for a girl to show how great love can be
