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.

By the cedars of the Lebanon

Rahab recalls

By the cedars of the Lebanon in sunshine and in showers, my love and I played together and whiled away the hours   Far from the corridors of lust away from the couch and the divan we toyed and teased, and mewled and cried, as only lovers can   I was hers, and she was mine, midst the wars and rumours thereof we laughed while the sun did shine and of the morrow we thought not   ...Read On

Me and You

Her point of view, followed by his

At the start there were hearts, and flowers and such-like stuff, and whatever you offered me, you said was not enough. But I shared with you my wish,  with nary a fuss until we depart  on a trellis dish of cuttlefish.   In the noon-day of delight, there was passion, there was lust, and we did what we did, not from duty but because we must For the gusting wind trussed  a...Read On

How can I tell you

How can I tell you What I want you to know? You are cautious and guarded Protecting what has already been hurt. Glimpses of vibrant passion  that once freely adorned your face. Hidden from view Scared to be open, all tender and raw Sealed in by a scared shell. Over time as we talk Slowly Cautiously  Our defences come down As trust is garnered Your true beauty is shown. The darkness and...Read On

This Morning

Waking up to a beautiful day...

Morning air of the north wind blowing, awakens me Blindly looking for my salvation to this chilling cold Crawling up underneath the blanket, getting warm Making my shuttering body calms me back to sleep "Wake up my cinnamon girl." Dreaming of your lips press a kiss on my cheek Breathe life and warmth to my throbbing heart Beating fast from the touch of your fresh smell Beard gracing the...Read On

Idols

How we idolise

There is a little yellow idol, not to the east of Katmandu, but rather in the mirror, where you gaze on you. From the solipsism of your lust, to the foothills of your desires, from the have to the must, there the shadow falls Of the praise of self, there is no end just a beginning and a continuation which no man's hand can mend, or woman's heart could compass If not for...Read On

Trespass

Your eyes trespassed in a way that my flesh cannot pierce, it was a sign, it was a calling, how lips can part but leave us ablaze. I wanted it to mark me forever, a sigil that only you can see. I wanted to be claimed and kept, to have something that cannot become a phantom between us.... The flush of skin slowly revealed, a great divide coming to a close, it was a sign, it was a calling. ...Read On

Love Remembers

Love remembers everything

You are my rock  You are my safe place  You calm the chaos  With just a simple touch  I'm your gentle place  Your soft place  Where you can be  You without guarding your heart  Love remembers  The touch of a lover  The sweet gentle kiss  The long good night kiss  The passion we share before we  Fall asleep all tangled up in the sheets  ...Read On

After Midnight Part 2

It was after midnight...

It was after midnight Being with my baby tonight The trees moving in the wind so slight His arm around me, making me feel light. Into the woods we went, so scared I clung with all my might Too weak to tried to put up a fight His hand around my wrist so tight I would give anything to have his voice tell me it is all right. His eyes so bright They glow into the dark night His head went down...Read On

The Muse

There was diversity Among the roses And he picked me. Sensuous and soulful Swaying in the wind, My scent disperses, Rendering him helpless To my sexual prowess. I become his aphrodisiac, His muse Inspiring, alluring, loving, Like an angel, A beacon of hope. He grasps on Never letting go, For eternity.  ...Read On

Kittens in the Seraglio

In the Seraglio with my love

In the Seraglio of the Sultan, there is a sense of strain, for all the women serve one man, and seek to make him their own, so art and artifice abound, to serve that appointed end.   In that competition there can be But one victor, and one Queen, And all before her will bow, All seek to be her, and to See the others kneel, and to Have their son rule after him.   But in my...Read On

Mirella's Art

Beauty and passion go hand in hand. Nowhere more so than in Mirella's art.

In vain I search for words enough To praise what I have seen; Your monuments of line and tone Standing grandly in between A past resonant with glories And a future yours to form From the tempest of your passions; Your art's life giving storm. As locks of golden serpentine With warring muscles intertwine, Flesh-locked fires intensify The burning blueness of an eye, While...Read On

I Wish For You To Meet Me Here

If only you could

I wish for you to meet me here Where the warm wind blows over our sun kissed skin I wish for you to meet me here So we can explore the deep blue ocean, and feel the water over our bodies I wish for you to meet me here Where we can walk in the sand, our hands together fingers intertwined I wish for you to meet me here So you can hold me close, as the sun sets watching the...Read On

Tenet of Love

It seems to me love is, But, the how and why, Seductively, enticingly, Remain shrouded in mystery.   Love thinks and does, And struggles to align with expression. Our feelings developed and cultured By one half of the psyche. Language controlled by the other, So, I am left dumb, A devoted student to Plato, Forsaken to ponder my own insight. My appreciation and admiration Of beauty,...Read On

On the couches of the Seraglio

Sapphic love

On the couches of the Seraglio, she offers me a peach, I proffer back a pomegranate, but keep it just out of reach.   She selects for me a melon,  of pinky-coloured hue, and I give to her one of honeydew.   She puts to my lips, a slice of watermelon, and take it and to and suck, slowly spitting out the pips.   She smiles at me, as I give her, my pomegranate sweet, and she...Read On

In your company, I find my peace

In the midst of the turmoils of life I find my rest in you.   I long to see your name,  Flash across my screen, in radiant glory,  Announcing your arrival   It is for you alone that I wait, Like waiting for Spring, In patience, In sIlence, For when you are present,  My light is perfect. The music sounds so sweet, The birds sing And, I am complete.   You reach out and caress me...Read On

Fever

But for you, I feel true love.

I have the fever for you even when I'm blue I know I'm one of the few.   Whose hot for your presence because you give me pleasance as it imbued in your essence   There’s a fire in my soul that burns in my cubbyhole, but you give me control.   Your body has me inflamed, and my heart is untamed but, I'm forever claimed.   In you, I’ve found my heat and within it my ability...Read On

Memory

Idle thoughts in a dark room...

My mind racing... And it hit me the other day As I lay there I recognized the thought of you right away And it isn't fair. I felt you before I saw you It always happened that way Each time it felt new You always knew just what to say. Our tryst was smouldering in its heat Much like your touch against my skin Your eyes held a dark intensity That matched your cocky grin. Your...Read On

Cherry Blossom

My beautiful princess Sakura

There was a girl, So beautiful and sweet  She was so mysterious  Strange like a daytime dream. She was so remarkable, I could see a beautiful princess Dressed in a kimono  Covered in Cherry Blossom leaves. She was floating down river, Underneath a canopy  Draping either side of the river bank Of pink and white Sakura trees. She is so beautifully extraordinary, As unique as a double rainbow...Read On

Meadow's Lupines

A breath is born in open arms of meadow's lupines

In silence, a breath is born in open arms of meadow's lupines, Of yellows and blues that grace your hair of bonnet worn. While walking in shadows where gods have sworn, As a down of pollen blows a kiss softly touching your lips. With an essence of aura's love at my finger tips, As your breast's show of giving a life's begun, Upon the dew of a meadow's view in lupines....Read On

The playroom in the Seraglio

Playing

In the seraglio of the Sultan, the eunuchs keep a watch, lest Sappho's love should dull the edges of our desire.   I submit because I have to, sold to the harem as a slave, but my longing is for the scabbard, not the sword.   We play at cats' cradles, and with our dolls of rags, and we laugh and giggle, like little ones at play.   It is not just their manhood sacks that...Read On

Drought

Learning to embrace the season between storms

On this lush island, Suitcases unpacked, We trade our pallid Greenwich fogs And stinging coastal mists For drenching, Rainbowed cascades Under which we play And slake feral thirst. We tangle in solandra vines, Skin saturated In tropical deluge Yet aflame With touch sparked Chain lightning. Even the night's deepest thunder Can't suppress desperate whispers Wordlessly invoking Downpours...Read On

The Charade

To My First Heartbreak

When I first met him, I was lost in his eyes    With eyes so blue and so bewitching Little did I know he was playing a masquerade Hiding his emotions behind a mask. In his eyes, I saw the seduction And his desire of wanting me It was at that moment of my lost innocence Making all my dreams come true. At first, I felt his affection His touch was like a fiery sensation. I showed him my love...Read On

Over the horizon

Longing to be with the one that I love

As I lay here on the beach, As the waves brake upon the shore I dream and wonder What is just over the horizon. Closing my eyes, Dreaming of what lies beyond the horizon Over where I just can’t see Fearful to move close knowing, It’s always just out of reach. The thought that feel it beckons me close, The chance of a new life Is an offer I can’t refuse A world in which I am reborn,...Read On

The seraglio of the Sultan

An historical imagination

In the seraglio of the Sultan, the Orientalist imagination  saw a hotbed of all the lusts, as sensual houris competed for the bejewelled sceptre, of the munificent Padisha. It its pavilioned splendour, in courtyards paved with gold, the concubines whiled hours away, awaiting the call to arms, anointing with all the perfumes of Araby, their alluring charms. But as the sword of lust cleaved...Read On

Breathless

You leave me breathless

You leave me breathless, Every time we are together You are everything that, Is good in my life. You just don’t realise how special, You truly are to me I pinch myself, I can’t believe your mine It’s just like you walked out of a dream. The moment that we speak, It’s like for a second I lose my voice I am so speechless, lost for words Upon hearing your voice it’s so beautiful. It leaves...Read On

The Evergreen Gorse

There was the who, the who of my heart, a who we will not depart of abstract flipcharts, and evergreen gorse.   A gauzy shadow our wake, with a kiss of the who, but the who was you, as dew fell on the yew,   my lady of cordon bleu.      ...Read On
