A Poem About No-Love

I’ve got 2 weeks to go until school starts and I think I have all my ducks in a row.  My classes have been chosen, my books purchased, pens and pencils inked and sharpened!

In the meantime, I’ve been writing, painting, working out, and spending precious time with the one I love.

However, the following poem is about how you feel when you don’t feel loved.  I had a difficult childhood and continue to have difficult family relationships.  Sometimes, if you didn’t get what you need as a child, you have to give it to yourself as an adult.  That’s what I’ve done and continue to do.

Have a great week and enjoy the poem!


The Absence of Love

No warm winter blanket

No arms filled with yes

No proof of acceptance

To spread through my chest.

No light of approval

To shine from above,

Only slight recognition,

Some strange thing called Love.

A face without eyes,

A tree without limbs,

A house with no door,

A her with no him.

What might it have been like,

I think now and then,

How would I be different,

What could I have been

Had my weight made a dent,

Had my smile been returned,

Had I ever known love

That was given, not earned.
