Not In Love

This poem was written by Lynn Registe and is a part of a collection called Love n' Pain. She is just a high school student aged 15 and I think she has a bright future ahead of her. She asked me to review a few of her poems because she read a few of my poems and was impressed. I wish her all the best in that and will continue to encourage her in developing her poetry.

This is my favourite piece from the collection she gave me.

Not In Love

I'm suppose to be happy but I feel so down and out,
I think I'm in love but don't know what it is about.
I tell you that I love you when i know it is a lie,
I pretend that I'm happy when I really want to cry.
You're in love with me but do not have a clue,
I'm just pretending I'm not in love with you.
I'm not proud of what I've done or what I am to gain,
My feelings for you are so different it's something I can't explain.
How could I be so selfish to play someone like you,
You're everything a girl could want but I'm not in love with you.
How could you love me and think that I'm the one,
When you have no idea what I'm doing wrong.
To keep me happy there is no limit to what you'll do
So how could I tell you I'm not in love with you.
