A plea for acceptance goes unanswered...

Hey, why won't you notice me?
Why won't you inquire within me?
Actually talk to me and really get to know me?
Who are you to judge? can't you just talk to me like I can be your friend?
Do I have to try to get your attention?
Can't you just be open minded to new people?
I promise I won't bite!...at least, that's what I might say I guess....
I mean, I'm trustworthy!...only as far as you can throw me...
umm, I'm quite pleasant to be around!...well, if your 3 years old I guess...
I can be cool with the "hip" crowd! I know all the lingo!.....Only to pretend who I'm not....
I can have awesome sex!...even though I'm still a virgin....
I get awesome grades!, but I'm kinda a B-C average...
I guess there's a reason why you wouldn't want to get to know me.
I guess it makes enough sense to just walk away.
I guess I'm not the boyfriend material that I thought I was...
I guess I'm not worth the dime I thought I Was.
I guess I'm worthless...
with this new realization, by all means, throw me in the furnace.
For chrissake, save me from this hell of individualistic tendencies and just fucking kill me already. Its not worth living if I don't get anything from it....

Wonderful! You are clever... Notice the usually unnoticed people and they will notice you. Its just like that... we are all invisibles in some way because others are blind or misguided.
I liked the intensity here..

Dear god man, you are the most sexually frustrated person I know. That aside, I actually liked this piece, save for the ending. It kind of broke the flow of it all and threw me off track.
