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.

Silhouette

You enter my vision from where I lay. Moonlight from heavens’ palette Lights the path along your way All that is visible, your silhouette. Drowning out any distractions No imperfections can be seen. Your form, the simplest of attractions My emotions well up, spin, careen. The world sees your silhouette as austere A black and white, featureless cast. I perceive what they lack to revere...Read On

Addiction

You were like a drug to me Now I'm going through withdrawal Sleepless nights I lie curled into a ball Crying and shaking on a cold wooden floor Feeling like I still need you Just a little bit more. My body is numb fighting This strong urge to go back Oh Lord, have I been struck by lighting? Feeling like the walking-dead I crave one last taste of you Just one little bit.  ...Read On

Doomed Love — Book 2

In hindsight, there was an inevitability To the tragedy that unfolded that day, And no doubt that responsibility lay, With the magnate’s conceited pride, In proposing a match of such unsuitability Just to restore the company’s image, Regardless of the feelings of the bride. Despite his own family’s humble lineage As a child she had been strictly forbidden To associate with the grubby children...Read On

Doomed Love — Book 1

Barely visible in the inky gloom, The cold bodies of the young lovers lay, Just a glimmer of pale flesh in the dark, The watery fastness their woeful tomb. Unmoved by the sun’s warming ray, Never again would they rise with the lark And in the meadows laugh and play Like innocent children out of school, Or lie on shady banks beside the brook On hazy afternoons where the air was cool Happily...Read On

Let the Wind Caress Your Cheek

May the time come

Let the wind caress your cheek When I am not here When I must be far away Knowing I will return if I may To touch you with my fingertips Once more Caressing your cheek The way that only I can Let the wind caress your cheek And dry the tears of loss When I am not here When I must be far away Let the wind caress your cheek Until my lips may kiss away your pain Until my love may wash away...Read On

An intercourse of souls

From YSP to PLC

Who am I? Who is she? That she should take her place in me Who am I? Who is she? That I should find myself in thee   Who am I?  Who is she? Oh, beauty rare and beauty fair Who am I? Who is she? that she should give her heart to pair   Who am I? Who is she? that pain no longer follows me Who am I? Who is she? That she should bring her salve for me   The frisson long, the...Read On

Touchstone

There's more than anatomy between us, there are spaces both microscopic and vast, inches and inlets that were once whole but have cracked to drift apart and become jagged continents unknown to one another. The equivalent of vanished civilizations  will remain buried in our hearts, carvings on walls that only we can read,  to others it will all be a mystery, a short history...Read On

As I Scooched

As I trundled about my shop In my slippers as I scooched A stoop shouldered sway The early hours of dawn  Feeling the tranquility of it all As the flambeau flickered And the dust mite whiskers Brushed my arms As you danced with a splinter Casting a thinner of my own image A ghostly fellow of last winter When I came down with the ague Of the season just past Then you kissed my lips With alms...Read On

I Hate It When We Argue

This poem summarises a bad dream that woke me up several nights ago.

You scared me when we had that tiff By storming out my door You told me that you hated me Didn’t love me anymore   I hate it when we argue It always ends the same Both of us spit venom As we try to place the blame   Why do we have to fight Say all the things we said I lie here cold and naked now Without you in my bed   Why can’t we just agree To never scream and shout It...Read On

To sing again

I can sing again of love Not with pain, but thoughts of joy In my heart the day dawns brightly Into which my love doth walk I can dance, once again in love Gently swaying with the flow In my heart the music playing Whilst the silence here I know I can dream once again of love A love that is rich and pure A life full of joy ascertain In the arms of my love that surround I can sing, I...Read On

Her own worst enemy

Will this be the end?

  She sits on the grass  watching the sun sink on the horizon  Replaying the conversation over in her mind  realizing just how quickly the conversation spiraled out of control  it was her fault for saying something stupid  No one to blame but herself  she shouldn't have spoken without thinking about the consequences  now she doesn't know what to do to make it right or even if that...Read On

Connective

I may not remember everything, every single detail we shared, dates grow vague along with some words that may have slipped. But I remember you in the best way. The songs you played when telling me how they broke your heart for the first time, the notes that seemed to seep through skin and wrap around your core with nostalgia. I remember some things with painful clarity. I remember the...Read On

Love Like Crazy

Love like crazy

You met in an unexpected place You didn't expect to fall for each other But you love like crazy  People say you are crazy That it can't be real love No one expects it to last But you know different Your hearts are connected Your souls are intertwined The first time you touched The souls whispered To each other "Mine" Nothing else matters   You know it's real love and Nothing can change that...Read On

Moments

There are times I feel adrift Not quite alive, Not grounded Not feeling much of anything Then you reach out A text A call A touch And I exist again, In the curl of your smile And my answering grin Maybe we ground each other, In this swirling, blurring world, With a love so quiet  So powerful That sometimes it  Doesn’t need a voice But a touch  A look A kiss My heart is yours During all...Read On

Maybe

And if I watch you, maybe you will notice Feel the weight of my stare and turn And maybe you will smile and recognise something Unspoken and unnamed   And if I kiss you, maybe you will kiss me back Graze me with your hard fingers and soft tongue Trace me in morning sunlight and evening moonlight Blurred edges defined beneath your hands   And if I love you, maybe you will love me too Wrap...Read On

Caring hearts

A reason to carry on..

She stands on the edge of a virtual cliff inching closer with each new day Thinking life is just getting too difficult and no one would miss her anyway.   Taking another step closer feeling the pain closing in not just her own but those she holds most dear to her heart.   Starring out she thinks about how she will miss them some have been more like family than her real blood ones....Read On

Sweet Dream

Dreams can be a reality

She searched looking for The One, She had all but given up until he came along, They crossed paths online and connected instantly, He was everything she dreamed about, He wasn't Prince Charming in the fairytale sense, He was Prince Charming in jeans and boots, He was different from the rest and opened her eyes, To things she never realized, He unlocked all the secret places in her...Read On

Our Love

Our pure love.

A love like ours is hard to define. It's like standing in the sun our arms stretched wide. Basking in the heat of our love. The only sound, our beating hearts. The moment you take my hands in yours our fingers laced my heart begins to race. The gentle brush of your lips on mine, time stands still. We touch memorizing every curve, every line of one another bodies. Touching, teasing,...Read On

From Your Flesh

Something not anchored in love  drifted far beyond our reach,  exempt from our careful touch,  I'll be able to understand you one day.  I'm still here in this dark room,  broken by such little things,  a stray strand of auburn hair,  the most brief hint of perfume. Forever here on a late November evening  when you suddenly opened up to me and became a lock at the same time,  bare warm...Read On

Dream, Girl

Everyone deserves the love of their dreams...

It would be so hard to sleep next to you Is it possible to sleep with a smile? That would be me smiling thru the night Smiling Into my dreams waking to my dream girl Then I would count the minutes till we met up again when our days wound Down Memories of you carrying me thru the mundane Pushing me Propelling me Back into your arms Back between your legs Where I belong  ...Read On

A Sweet Dream

The room is dark and comfortable but she knows something is missing.

She lays there in bed, Wrapped in a blanket, Wishing it was his arms, Sniffing his t-shirt. She has on her pillows, Knowing he is thinking of her, Feeling his touch she rolls over, Making room on the bed, Crawling into bed, he wraps, His arms around her, Pulling her close She sinks into his embrace Feeling his breath, On the back of her neck, Giving her goosebumps, She...Read On

Move Mountains

If I love someone I would do anything to be with them

I would do anything to be with you Climb mountains Sail the ocean blue Swim the mighty rivers If you call I will be there for you If you need me I am here for you I am always here for you Even if you don’t need me I would do anything  To be with you Cross the vast deserts No lake too deep  No jungle too thick My shoulder is your pillow when you’re  feeling down I will comfort you when...Read On

Broken Hearts

Broken heart , live and learn

Broken hearts Broken promises Broken dates Empty words spoken Passions gone unfulfilled Dreams shattered in an instant Relationships destroyed Leaving you wondering why But You live and learn Realizing good bye is for the best Saving your heart from more pain But Pick yourself up This pain is only temporary, it will only burn for a little while The world keeps spinning as you...Read On

Your Love

I love to watch your love The way you talk about her And glow when she’s around Your eyes glued to her no matter where she moves The laugh you get when you think of something funny she once said How you swoon over a song that reminds you of her When you describe everything that makes her amazing to you The way you blush when I call you out on your feelings This love This true love I admire it...Read On

The heart cries out

That feeling of truth

That first frisson fantastic.  Not just a smile, your heart Matching mine, beat for beat.  The soaring flight of passion realised Until another comes.  Lying spent in each other's arms, The whispered love, the fiery lust Aflame on hilltops for all to see.  And they look, and they wonder How to make it true for them.  But it's for you, Heather  ...Read On

Leave Me Longing

You're still like a dream to me, I can almost touch those phantom edges, beautiful shapes that have left me longing on the precipice of what I can't understand. And I think I'm almost there again, before winter when I grew too jealous, too passive to say what I really meant the last time my whisper grazed your ear. Before when I was stilled by the starglow upon your skin as we made love,...Read On

Rascals Of My Mind

As the rascals of my mind unwind its twine And I feel an exuberance of love shine As your ambrosia's scent binds time To dally my twaddle with words so fine While leaves concede to the winds Aligning to a bard's poetic composure Falling about the ribbons in your hair   As shadows dance with my maiden fair   And the withershins of a kind mime    As the rascals of my mind unwind its...Read On

Lost

When you got lost in your own hell...

Thought words were lost to me forever,  The blackness I felt made me numb.  You Guided me to stand on my own two feet,  Making me realize you had never left my side.  Inspiring me to find my words again and write,  Always my muse to inspire me to grow.  This made me whole again to be creative  Allowing me to be free to love life again with you.  If you were to leave my world would stop I...Read On

Heart's Wonder

The fear of a new journey burdened by the weight of the past...

As my time marches on And memories pass in the night My dreams sometimes dare To ponder what’s right Am I destined for sadness And loneliness my fight Or can I battle for love With all of my might Is it greedy or fair To again want delight With desire for you To turn darkness to light I'm at those crossroads again Happy and hurt in plain fright They come with great fear Rejection...Read On
