See Me

What is it you want from me?
There has got to be something I do not see.
The way you look at her,
to me, I wish you would do the same.
I do not want to be just another girl
on your long list of a game.
What is so different about me
that makes it impossible to see
that I am a real person as well
with feelings
a life...
but still love.
and time
that I want to give to you.

But to you, it is like receiving a single rose
after someone gave you ten dozen.

What makes me different, you may ask.
I am simply

Take a chance on me...
maybe you will see.
That I'm worth another glance,
but I won't give you a second chance.
Now or never.
no time like the present hour.

I just want to know.
what you see,
when you
see me.

She can because she thinks she can.

I've decided I love both of your poems so far and I'm definatly reading the others hope you find time to write more. This poem actually reminds me of Taylor Swift's Tear Drops On My Guitar.
