Love Poems

Love poems and poetry is a hugely popular section proving romance isn't dead! They are literary compositions written with an intensity or beauty of language more characteristic of verse / poetry, than of prose.

This category is intended for poetry about romance, passion, and sensuality, rather than friendship, loss or familial / brotherly love.



love relived

Eventually, After travelling the years Together, hand in hand, Rejoicing in the heat of, Mouth on mouth. Skin on skin, Bodies receiving and, sweetly, giving. Eventually, Time takes his toll, And heat becomes an ember Yet never dies Passion calms, Yet lingers in fond glances, Fingers touch, with love, As hands still hold. All passion spent? Maybe, But the value of what remains ...Read On


Beneath The Lash

Beneath the deep lashing when a sweet pain blooms through your aching nerves, I wonder if I'm still there.  I can still feel you, it's in the blood, in the heart. The sharp intake of breath when you cannot utter a name, when you're reduced to whimper and shivering naked flesh. There can be no words in that moment when your nerves signal a painful flood that has learned to become a...Read On


You Pull Me Closer As I Sleep

I've written this poem for Cara, the little things we do and the beautiful days we share together.

You pull me closer as I sleep You wake me like you do Each new day begins the same A kiss from me to you   The moment that I wake up I look at you and smile I kiss you on the forehead You lay there for a while   Your hair cascades around your face I whisper in your ear I tell you that I love you You hold me warm and near   I help you put your hair up We sit upon our bed I...Read On


What is Life?

What is life If not the most precious gift of all? Life is love without regard Life is love despite What is life If not the essence within all? Life is love without regard Life is love despite What is life If not a seed of love planted in all? Life is love without regard Life is love despite What is life  If not nurtured within all? Life is love without regard Life is love despite ...Read On


Wash it Away

Doesn’t rhyme or have any sex!

The drumming on the roof Grows from a whisper to a loud roar Wash away everything  Please God, wash it away The bed is chilly I am in it alone but there is someone in it with me But our fire washed away long ago And I don’t want to sleep I want to think of you  My mystery lover We have never met, never spoken  But we have written  And the things you’ve written  Made me feel like I’ve...Read On


Spark to Flame

I woke one morning to find another gone Not a trace to be found, no reason, no so long My heart is too soft I fall much too fast Months of chatting and messaging Made me think this might last Again talk of meeting as the summer would near My heart grew ever hopeful he might be the one so dear Yet here again it's not meant to be As so many times before Will it ever harden me? Here I...Read On


Gone Away

The despair of losing love

Winter came in mid-July Bright, hot sun, Yet frost in my heart. You had gone away No words, only emptiness My life suspended People spoke, friends consoled But there was no you. Nature’s Winter came, Never matching the frosts I carried inside. Self-harming, I walked tree-shaded, Paths we had shared, Almost bathing in that pain, No bitterness, only tears And longing. ...Read On

Love In Stages

He sleeps so still She thinks about her life Their lives are not a thrill For the little housewife Communication has worn away She wishes for other things She continues to pray She know there's been no sin Marriage is a lot of work It's not like in the movies He can sometimes be a jerk He can be a bit moody They still love each other Problems are all around They remain married lovers...Read On

Love Blossoms

A loving relationship marinades Over a period of time The love often cascades The love can be sublime Love is lots of work Problems will escalate It might drive you berserk Putting you both in a state With time, love is a journey Creating memorable memories There will be lots of worries Love can also be in jeopardy You must show love daily Never hold anything back Love can drive you...Read On

My Gothic Violin

At times in prose my words wither With a pretentious fleeting Lacking oxygen of this bard's love As the valance of day shawls Then back to wither without a trace As a specter shakes my Gothic violin And as candlelight flickers in shadows   A breath of your presence breathes life On the walls of my sacred space As your kiss pollinates my soul With your lips of sweet resin As a specter...Read On

Amongst the Arabian sands

Love is a treasure that is so great to find

There was a love worth finding Amongst the vast Arabian desert  Hidden in the warm golden sands A gold rush worthy of being chased A treasure so rich to find More than a carat of diamond To have won over my heart When I found you my love. In the heart of nowhere evermore To have walked a thousand miles barefoot  On sands, hot like embers on a fire With the wood crackles and sparks Like...Read On


A Most Beautiful Gift

When you are given   A most beautiful gift When you see  A most beautiful sight  My heart rejoices  To know that one is there Beyond compare Who simply  Meets my needs How can you define With three little words,  Which hold such power,  glibly said by some, Yet, mean the world to others  What is my dream  But to hold my precious one? Precious one beyond compare  That comes off the page...Read On


Feeling my love

Naked lying on my bare body She lays Hungering for my pleasure Feeling my love My hand at rest on her head  Eyes closed She lays  Her mouth at rest on his head Hungering for her pleasure  Feeling my love The peace  Following the storm The torrent of emotion spent Succumbed to need Worship Adoration Resting at peace She lays  Feeling my love Secure in my love In our world that’s perfect   ...Read On


Thought into Deed

Thinking of a much loved lady

If thoughts were deeds Would you blush If I told you of The promise I see in your eyes? That allure, that desire, Over sensuous lips That tug at my heart, Only to confirm The offer made by your eyes. If thoughts were deeds, Would you tremble If my touring fingers, Rustled through your tawny hair Stroked that curving shoulder,  To set your skin a-tingle?  As my hands trace...Read On


There is a hope

There is a hope that makes my poets eyes lift from the page and see your face.   There is a hope that stirs my fertile mind that gives me strength  for each and every day   There is a hope that burns within my heart my passions and my love for you   There is a hope that stands the test of time  that brings us close each day and night.   There is a hope that drives my...Read On



Laurie, Laurie, lay your locks down low, (and smother me with cream soda kisses). Let us skip away the day, wearing only an August sunset, and dance on the Lilly pads. We’ll make love to the harvest moon, for life, is beautiful. Laurie, Laurie, gather seeds to sow, (and get me drunk with amaretto kisses). Let us build a bonfire that burns deep, and scream each other’s name into the night....Read On


Dreams To Compromise

A friendship blindsided into a polyamorous relationship

Looking back now I should have seen it; the tunnel vision blinded me. One thought running through my mind; real life. One girl that took me by complete surprise without a warning. A warning of the spell that she would put me under. One look was all that it would take for her to change me forever.   Her world was fast and free but full of temptation. Temptation that reached out and...Read On


11.55pm New Year’s Eve

If you want something badly enough...

The clock says midnight will be here soon, Almost time for the ladies to swoon.  Everyone’s eyes subtly scanning the room, Seeking the one they wish to kiss soon.    I see you standing on the far side, You caught me gazing at you doe-eyed,  I’ve only got four minutes to reach you,  Oh God, I hope there is no queue.   Fuck it, I’m not going to miss that kiss, I have to catch...Read On

I can taste so much in your skin,  the faint sweetness in the dusk wind, the tears you've shed in secret, a memory of soft earth and honeysuckle and your natural mysterious nectar. The fleshy pearl beckoning, already swollen with anticipation just from the heat of an exhaled breath, nerves forever tuned to my quiet proximity. You had to have known then how much I wanted you. Such feral...Read On


Deep in Sleep

Deep in sleep, she finds her peaceful place, Where she's allowed a reprieve from life's hectic pace Spaces where her mind is free, to escape to be who she wishes to be A woman who is loved in fairytale ways, Adored in a manner in which she'd never need stray Avenues in Paris, cobblestoned streets in Prague, Vineyards in Tuscany, are her daily prologue Hand in hand in the City of Love,...Read On


Top Shelf

Top Shelf Baby You’re swagger that slays me But baby, back down from the top shelf. We’re driving too fast past the city lights because you just like to hear me scream. I know the way you need me without the frills of wealth, I don’t need big carats or trips to Tropez Because I have you in your vintage Vuarnets, peeping at me over the tops.   Come down under the covers; let’s dive...Read On


I Might Not Know But...

I might not know Why spectres do scare Or colour of Umbrellas for your kids. Never have known How to fix Computers And wipe them clean. Or bouncing through The African bush Watching out for Lions. I need not wait For my wife to leave To think to message. Or need to be a clown Swirling smoke To hear you scream. But I do know Love Adore Respect Cherish Honour For You the one I love.  ...Read On


In His Arms

Is her safe place...

Tossing and turning Fighting for control Trying to overcome the darkness The self-doubt and insecurities. "Shh." you say As you sit down Wrapping your arms around her As you pull her on your lap. Placing soft kisses on her forehead Whispering softly "Calm down, my beautiful angel I’m here and nothing will hurt you now." The tears subside As you softly kiss her neck She squirms and giggles...Read On


Shimmering Lights on Christmas Eve

Lost in thought on Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve, so late at night I'm here alone, watching shimmering lights Each light it seems, reminding me of wishes for the year that I'd hoped would be Some like the rain, would materialize The lack of others, bringing tears to my eyes Prosperity and surprises in parts of my life, Bringing optimism amidst personal strife The appearance of someone, one held so dear, Hopes dashed...Read On


I am not toxic

I am not toxic; I return to show you to yourself I do not break you When I break something it stays broken You heal over and over again You remember the pain that I bring and yet you let me in You are not a masochist who craves pain You are a self-healer and you know that to heal you must first be hurt more This is what I bring you. The ability to heal. I remind you you're alive I am not...Read On


The Candle

  I was lit in the darkness My single flame  Alighting a deep red candle  My tallow… scented  Dripping down my body My light in the darkness  Shining on the form  Of a naked form Spread-eagled on her bed  Each limb tied with silk  Secure  I dropped on her form  My heated tallow  Dripping over her nipples  In the shadows  It looked as if her nipples were  Blood red  I was guided by my...Read On


That Day

It was destiny that called  That day when we met Noticed because of her words  Noticed because of something more Noticed because something was missing  That only she could fulfill  It was destiny that called  That day in her bed  Noticed because of her smile Noticed because of her song Noticed because her pain was gone That only I could fulfill It was new life that called That day in her...Read On

I make a Christmas wish For that someone special To be there with me To make my wishes come true.

Love Paradox

Relay. You and I locked in this snare. "Why are you doing this to me?" Blissful joy to exasperated frustration. "Why can't you just believe in me?" Primal rage and wanton lust. But trust? "Don't cry. Baby, you are all I see!" Reckless abandon though cautiously aware. "Stop this...let's just be." Once again, caught up in the crazed and euphoric elation. Wistfully and impossibly glad, back...Read On

Cyber Wishes At The Holiday

During the holidays I wonder What a life would be with you If you were my only lover I know our love would be true Our days would be quite full I'd listen to you reading poetry You'd wear a sweater made of wool Perhaps we'd be putting away groceries We'd drink our drinks by a fire Share a laugh or two In that moment you'd be all I desired Perhaps we'd even eat some fondue I dream of our...Read On
