Unreal - Poem by confused soul

upon the request of my mind
against that of my heart
lost in a world full of thought
saying what if? or why not?
does true love exist..
if one does not love the other?
or is felt but never said?
how do we know who is right for who?
who do we tell we love to?
from many experiences
this is what i've learned..
each risk you take is a risk for heartache
yet if you don't
it'll leave you thinking..
'what if? '
and then sometimes
you find the 'perfect' one
then all over again..
they're not the one
i've given every try
to every guy
risking heartache each time
i've waited patiently
been faithful and loving
was nothing but nice
yet still in the end..
my heart needs to mend
i've done it so much
i'm used to the process
and every single time
i'm hurt as much as the last
i feel so used
as if being watched and laughed at
im hurting
and no one knows
i want to vent
a friend to listen
but i can't seem to find that
i try to better myself
but it never seems to work
everyone taunts me of how i've gained
and i ask myself that too
sometimes i feel like i'm going crazy
then all of a sudden i'm normal again
my mind's a temple of unanswered questions
my ears hear all the lies
my body is used
my hands are all bruised
loves a figment of my imagination
and until i find it.
to me..
it's unreal

    You caught my eyes on this poem, nicely written and well versed for someone trying to clarify about love and happiness, which direction you are going..but sometimes love and happiness just come to a person, if you look for it sometimes you can't find it, but sometimes if you are not looking for it it just come to you the suddenly inbetween you are involved and feel the dagger and feel the happiness.
    A nice start welcome to the site.....

    Best Wishes,

    Yoonoos is right and that's why I gave you a 9 on this piece. You did a wonderful job from start to finish. You left nothing out. You cleaned out the cabinet of the
    stories of love. There are none of these left to tell.
    Join the club, is all I can say my dear. I've been there and done that. The
    only thing to learn is what to look for, in searching for happiness. Because it
    is not love you seek but happiness. When you find happiness, you will find
    love is its constant companion. You will find happinress, when you look
    around and find the boy who is your best friend. The one who is always there.
    Good luck.
