He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not - Flash 55 Friday, July 9, 2010

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not - Flash 55 Friday, July 9, 2010

I wish I could be certain,
That your love for me is true,
I always feel this nagging doubt,
My insecurities break through.

I need constant reassurances,
I wish I weren't this way,
I guess I don't believe my luck,
That you're in my life to stay.

He loves me, or he loves me not?

  2. hitesh rawat -
    I am so glad you like my poems. It's always been easier for me to express my thoughts and feelings throught this medium than to say them directly to someone.

  3. cute and does need reassurance...and sometimes it is because we feel so lucky, sometimes because time has taken its toll and we want to know it is more than skin others just need loves assurance. nice 55.

    mine is up!

  4. 'He does not love me for my birth,
    Nor for my lands so broad and fair;
    He loves me for my own true worth,
    And that is well,' said Lady Clare.

  5. Love can never be,
    What you dream it to be,
    Till you learn to see,
    That you are you and I am me.

    How's that Carmen?

  6. Once in love
    The die is cast
    The only question
    Will it last?

  13. I think I have figured out why I like your poems so much. They are like wonderful short little songs. I'm a huge music lover, and I like certain short songs by Queen. Your poems seem similar to me, easy to understand but complicated where it counts.

  14. Brian Miller -
    You certainly covered many of the reasons we need to be reassured about love!

    Shiju Sunugan -
    Besides being the most amazing photographer, you are quite a poet - and a romantic at that.

    John's comments -
    Thank you for that quote from Tennyson! I hadn't read that particular poem.

  15. steveroni -
    You are quite a poet, and I like your response to my poem!

    g-man -
    You are the sweetest rogue. I hope you are
    having a great weekend yourself!

    lakeviewer -
    I hadn't thought of it in those terms but you are absolutely right! Love does need feeding = sometimes, just a snack, other times a ten course meal!!!

    R.J. -
    My muse takes breaks far too often! No vacations lately, though.

    betchai -
    Your photography is the most beautiful poetry!

    Jingle -
    Love seems to elude me in my old age - but I do have some wonderful memories!

    Alice Audrey -
    I guess we all need reassurances from those we love.

    ρομπερτ -
    I am sure you captured many hearts!!!

    Ratty -
    You always say the nicest things that mean so much to me. I appreciate your comments. It seems like you put some real thought into them.
