Message to Readers

I'm new to poetry but thought I'd give it a try since I need an outlet (unrequited love with your friend SUCKS!)
I'f there's anything I can do to improve flow or pacing, let me know! I want this poem to feel smooth to read as well as painful/sad.

Thoughts on Love

I used to think
love
was this perfect fluffy thing
all giggles and blushing
hearts and happy endings

I wish I could tell you now
what I think about
love

What I can tell you
is how
love
feels 
when you’re fifteen
depressed
and angry with the world

Love
feels like suffocating
drowning in the air
It's reaching out your hand but
hers isn’t there

It's an endless hunger
a pang inside of you
And you know the only way to feel full
is to say the words
and hear her say them too

I don’t know what I think about
love

All is know is I am in 
love
wishing there was a way out
