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.


Music Box

From a real event...

The sweet sadness of a music box winding to a stop. The notes growing slowly further and further apart. The cheerful tune becoming melancholy. I wonder at each note, "Will it be the last?" As we drift apart, my Love, When will be OUR last?...Read On


Distance to our Hearts

As I lay in bed, I dream a dream That I could be near the sweetest being, As I toss and turn and drift to sleep, My eyes open, You are near; Eyes are bright like the moonlight, In my dream our love is pure, Like the soft scent of a rose, Lips kiss, Hearts melt, I awake and I wonder if this will last forever....Read On


Much More

Kiss me kiss me in the morning... evening... daytime... kiss me, hold me, hug me sweetheart ...

Give me a kiss from my forehead to my toes The one that makes my heart constrict to pure bliss Those kisses that can make you cry with happiness  That deep feeling of belongingness with someone Give me a kiss from my lips to your tongue The one that makes me hungry for more Those kisses that can make you thirsty  That kissing is not enough to satisfy a need Give me a kiss that...Read On



There are only flashes left, my lips nearing yours but never quite touching, so close that only a potent electricity thrummed between us. The unfinished kiss as the moon splashed silver across your mysterious frame, as wind carried raw perfume to my lungs, if things had been any different... I would've become your every memory of ocean air and sweet wine. And I would've whispered words...Read On


You Are My Forever

You are my forever person. Thank you.

I am not easily surprised But never saw you coming Two years of friendship Slowly building a foundation Then a relationship request My world began to spin My once crazy existence You became a safe haven What was once gray Awash in vibrant hues Colors not found in any Art class color wheel Overnight my world Evolved into our world You became my guide My beacon in the dark Never...Read On


Baritone Of Prose

With a whispering brogue I the baritone of prose Soft shoeing with a smile With lines of poetic hue Shaking out with the grins And vibrations in the still With the quietness of a quill As your breath caresses And I in my interlude  Behind shadowed doors As the fever slowly rises Feeling your soft sighs Suspended by love strings 'Neath a crescent moon  I the baritone of prose...Read On



Written for a true event

The time I had with you, my Love, Shall ever be with me. You changed my life for the better; Grateful I am for that. Our parting was a shock to me, But, I do understand. The future right now is unclear; My thoughts linger with you. Will you, will I, find another? None who can replace "us". "Time heals all things," you said to me. Perhaps. ...Read On



Inspired by the thoughts I read on sombody's bio

Without the Sun, the Apple will not grow, Will not earn its name... Golden Delicious Without the Moon, the Rose will have no beauty, In it, the Love between two People will not reflect. I look upon the North, the Moon in my Left hand the Sun in my Right Perhaps, if I could capture Both join my hands at their unique Zenith I will have the Answers and be...Read On



It’s rare we have this chance to share our romance in a room out of sight even just for one night. A sigh, breath so sweet I lift you off your feet carry you to the bed as if we were newly wed Away from all the daily strife of being mother and wife you huddle into my arms offering me your charms. With no pressure to rush having time to make a fuss I fondle and explore...Read On


My breath became a zephyr

Unrequited Workplace Loves

My breath became a zephyr the instant our eyes met, My eyes wandered over her, a memory I will not forget, I cannot describe her beauty; I was blinded by her light, I wish to take her home for the remainder of my life. Alas, she has a husband, a man with too much male ego, He doesn’t know she looks at me as a man she’d like to know. We avert our eyes when speaking; we don’t trust the honesty...Read On


Forget Me Not

A poem of hope for the one whose love will endure triumphant for all eternity.

Almost ethereal in hue, your tiny blooms Hide shyly in the grass like small fragments of sky, Whispering of better places and kinder ways, A happy land revealed only to true lovers. Where love reigns supreme and fear and pain are unknown. In better days we have travelled there together, Walking hand in hand on verdant dew dropped meadows, Leaving a trail of silver where our feet have...Read On



Do you, like me, sometimes ponder why things happen to be? Do you ever pause to consider what really is the cause? Do you ever wonder or marvel at what really is amazingly clever: why two separate people become entwined to love and mate? In this mystery play with its cast of millions how come my needle was plucked out of the hay? I ask, what did I do ...Read On



I could tell you an intricate story, but we awaken in the raw knowing, a gradient shift in shared history, time coalesced into endless rivers flowing. To be changed with a single touch, blood tide replaced with sweet ichor, ambrosia heating in the rush, tender fires flaring at your core. This is how the earth shakes, a ruthless hunger to know divinity, to know the meaning of our aches...Read On


Tick Tock Please Stop

Tick tick tock Why do I even own a clock Time wasted I watch That word came back So sad we'd been on track Around we go again Promise you said No not that word Omissions I heard Wasted chances drained What did you gain Now I'm left pieces apart Words just nonsense My hearts wrenched Noises from your lips Secrets destroy us Forgetting you say Faulty memory a plus Do...Read On


You Touch Me

Find the one that can reach inside your jaded soul without fear of the sharp edges.

The random messages you send make me smile on difficult days, Always timed when my sky is grey. You know my needs before I do, always anticipating my heart's desires. Knowing me better than I, You touch me. You are both the erotic and romantic, filling my life with vivid memories. Together we learn steps to dances we have yet to find the music for. A beat that pulsates rhythmically ...Read On



While crossing bridges As the prose goes Yonder as the Rubicon flows Never looking back But poetically sounder A passing dalliance shows Keeping my eyes straight ahead When the fire burns in my chest With pebbles of kisses For a love not to be Without floundering While crossing bridges Yonder as the Rubicon flows...Read On


What Time Is It?

Do you have the time?

Among the chaos Behind the heart We find some way To press restart Or is that just me Always a possibility I hate trying It's a waste of time So is writing Silly little rhymes Or is it Possibly Just me My thoughts flood Then they halt Everything is gone It isn't my fault Could it be That it's just me Finding calm Inside calamity Praying to God I will be set free That's just me...Read On

In Your Mind's Eye

Close your eyes and just envision: maiden fair of; hair raven black, eyes dark brown, skin golden tan. Who could this woman be? This spirit your mind does see. Together you build a connection creating a bond nearing perfection. Miles and miles keep you apart, still she's woven through your heart. Past hurts have made both suspicious, have hope: fruit ripening shall be delicious. ...Read On

Memories Of Us

Will there be time left for our love?

I wonder if you can be my Marianne Like Cohen’s muse, his lover and friend They lived a life both together and apart But was filled with passion until the end Is it the same as what I feel I have found in you A confidante whose company I wish to spend You too picked me up when I was ready to go And gave my resigned soul a chance to mend Your spark and belief inspire me to write Something...Read On


Worn Time Over

I'm comfortable in my phew With my prosing whey Of fluidity in my writes Like an old soft shoe Worn time over One poem clover With a lunar kind above As the dusk melts into night When the chapel bells quell With words assuring We retie the knot In my old soft shoes...Read On


No Apologies

A Lion and His Queen

For my Daddy/Dom

Though hurt over and over He stood proud Fierce, Strong He stood His ground. Many kept at bay, His growl and Loud roar sent many away, scared. Women cast aside, all his prey, all unworthy of his praise. A lone lion, cautious and guarded, but all this protection was futile and in vain. Soft, regal and strong, she bared her heart, and in doing so, un-shielded him. For the first time He...Read On



Play the guitar as I sing you a song...

Let me caress your shapely body Play my fingers to your edges Know every part of you. Let me learn how to play you Strum those strings of yours Flick that cord for you. Let's play music to the air Strumming you deep so the Music will play out from you. Let's hear the gentle sounds That echo from your music As we play the cords of you. Let the symphony accompany This acoustic instrument...Read On

Her Touch

Her fingertips slowly stroke my cheek. Soothing, caring, healing touch. Drying tears, closing wounds, giving strength. Tenderness, concern, banishing pain. Venom drawn out, antidote applied, despair defeated. Health, safety, restored faith. No words needed. Tactile medicine, freely given. Nails gliding, along my skin. Transcendent love. From her heart through her hands....Read On


The Staircase to Nowhere

All I want is someone who will stay, no matter how hard it is to be with me.

Has she been on the staircase to nowhere In search of the one she lost.  Has he offered to shoulder her burdens No matter what it might cost. Could the feelings return with his presence  Reaching out to her once more. Could she spin from the past to the present  Dancing close upon his shore. Will she ask for her wants and accept them No longer merely abide. Will he gather her deep in his...Read On


Tired Angel

The beat goes on

I am so over Getting pushed around Kicked while I'm down Crying without making a sound I can't understand Why I feel so bad Every time you get mad Our life is fucking sad It's gotta stop soon I can't handle any more My heart is bruised and sore There must be an end to this war Driving me mad I want you far far away Ruining someone else's day For now, that's all I have...Read On

Spun Sugar and Caramel Cream

…and tufts of wild grass that whisper all day

Playful bright pinks and soft pastel blues, Tangerine sherbet on the horizon infuse A palette of evening hues Which your heart and soul embrace with delight, The majestic display of the eventide light. Watching a consumed sun cast its last dying rays Igniting cloud wisps in an empyrean blaze, A final act of the day, That washes gold sunlight so warm on your skin That you eagerly relish it like...Read On



The fire burns Magnificently, scorching Me to a crisp. Chest cavity caving empty In where love used to lie. And my heart broke silently. To him, You were the fire, That burned for that one moment, Unto my hungry soul. The flames went higher, As we became one, soaring. My unyielding heart burned white hot. I thought that you were only you for me, And that I was only yours but...Read On


Bed Of Benthos

Liquid Chocolate Eyes

Her liquid chocolate eyes mesmerize; my chin on hands, my breath full of sighs, Her husband thinks nothing amiss but I desire to give his wife a kiss, There is smoke when our eyes meet and thoughts of being indiscreet, A fire burns within my heart, she feeds the flames, Cupid shoots a dart, We three talk of interesting things, the angel unfolds her lovely wings, Her chocolate eyes mesmerize,...Read On
