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.


What is a Friend

A friend is there for all you need In both the good times and the bad. A friend is the one you go to whether you're happy or you're sad A friend will be the one that loves you no matter what that day has brung A friend brings the lyrics to music from the song that's not been sung A friend will hold you close to them drying your tears and listen to your fears A friend is the one...Read On


Yesterday's Smile

Like the steps to the rising dawn I'll be with you in song Bear with me my earthly wile As I reset the memories Of my mind's kaleidoscope With a fragrance of a dearin' smile And would thee seek a morrow's kiss If I sought your verse bliss On the other side of yesterday's sun As I reset the memories With flowers upon your pillow When the sun shines, my sweet fawn...Read On


My Mind's Tree

As my fingers give me the rhythms 'Tween my old writing sings In boughs of my mind's tree As our love thimbles a poetic reel And your smile cants a throbbing As you rest on a cushion of willow In my dally as I riddle A lovely poem for a season With love's incense A forever homily And a entwining sublime In boughs of my mind's tree...Read On


Tappin' My Shoe

At times my rhetoric fails me When I'm pitching woo And tappin' my shoe While sippin' homebrew As the June bug flies But my heart is in its place As I kiss your finger tips And ask for your wed With a golden band ring When not tongue-tied As the June bug flies When I'm pitching woo And tappin' my shoe...Read On


A Candle's Reflection

With a candle's reflection in the mirror of my mind If I could see you now and feel your blush That I would raise the curtain for all to see A metaphor of an angel that you bring to me And with a whisk I would stir distant trails Of sleigh bells and good eggnog cheer  On fallen snow and mistletoe With a candle's reflection in the mirror of my mind Flowing softly like a...Read On


A Full Moon's Harp

Letting loose with a chortle of glee Of happiness in our martial whimsy Like life's carousel spinning our love And acorns falling from a tree As you hug me beneath the blowing leaves When the honey bees hum most tenderly I'll be kissing your lips to catch-me-up And with a gifted line we will twine our time As our love of life takes a shine Feeling the vibrations of the full...Read On


Believe In Soft Winds

I believe in soft winds and hat pins to stick Wind up widgets and gadgets that click And scratch off lottery tickets I believe in love words and incense scent With little soft kisses and silly sniffles And an embroidered hankie I believe in love and conceptual sins Making whoopee in compilations And harken the herald to the Man above I believe in wedding bells and wishing...Read On


A Poetic Flair

When stanzas of love Cleanse my shallow soul The cinders on the grate will flare And to those I have offended Leaving suspended by string With a poetic flair I make my amends Now washed of my sins With non toxic words And romance on the horizon  I'll be writing new letters With a poetic flair...Read On


In Cahoots

In my bedroll with poetic aspirations 'Neath a starry sky and blanched moon All alone with hardtack and biscuits In cahoots with shadows on the plains As the sage blows across the lands Listening to my mind as I define Cowboys and Stetson hats As the prairie dogs bark While chanting a yippiee-ki-yay Breaking a string on the fiddle An the cactus flowers blossom I'll be...Read On



For my inamorato for reigniting the flame within

It is hard to remember my life before you  Back to those days that were tough to get though  Claiming nothing was missing was clearly untrue I now see I was blinded by a distressed point of view When we collided I was shocked to realize  Feelings I missed now took me by surprise Promised love unable to get past all the lies  Hope now appeared mysteriously before my teared eyes  ...Read On


Spilled Champagne

Love kills softly and slowly, Like a disease it enters, Filling you with its ugly decay, Creeping and crawling away. Sheathed in concerto, Singing passion with gusto, Lying whispers to the heart Intoxicating your mind, until nothing sane remains. You fill your voids, and dig your hole, Like worms it wriggles into your core, It eats at your membrane, gnawing away, Leaving you with...Read On


Winter's Stillness

Why weren't you my destiny?

She's stuck in winter's stillness, stalled at Christmas time. Fog wraps its wings around her and hugs her while she cries. The love she found, she'll never own.  The Christmas gift she craves.  Destined to be without her.  To another, his love, he gave. Another already wore his ring. She'd arrived late to the revelry. Seemed someone else was living her life.  Why couldn't he have been...Read On


Sending Off

What's the score?

Is it fate How we relate When things are great We celebrate We shift and spin Honoring our win Ignoring our sins The darkness within There is no pain For me to explain No way to complain When we've gone insane Going day by day Is there any other way Should I simply stay Is it time to walk away Perhaps a little nap A voyage sans map No arms around me wrap No love to fill the gap Until ...Read On


Life's A Dance

the song may be over

Life is a dance  You search high and low for that forever love you read about  Then he comes out of nowhere and steals your heart from the word hello  You pray he is your destiny part of the grander plan Then suddenly you watch him walk away ,breaking your heart as he goes  Yet, you wouldn't regret a minute of the dance you shared for a brief minute in time  You learn from...Read On


Our Turn

And every time I hear that same old tired music I see her face again Lit by whatever screams light In a crowded southside club Everyone was dancing and beautiful Because everyone dancing is beautiful Songs about whatever lasts forever Because something always does – Be it heartbreak or love – And I had to lean in close and whisper Something about love and fucking Just...Read On


Dia De Los Muertos

A celebration of death of an old life

Staring at my own reflection  The face revealed is dead inside  Eyes have become cold and shallow  The spirit that lived there has died  I've let you do this to me  There’s no one to blame but myself  Believing in what should be love  I put my own life on a shelf  You took all I had to offer  And gave it a sly little nudge  But it wasn’t you loving me For it’s only you that you love  There...Read On


Beautifully Broken, Perfectly Imperfect

"They make you fear your imperfections, but in fact, they are the diamonds of your being".

Love me, not for beauty, love me, for my deformity.  When I'm... Blanketed by darkness,  traversing sorrow's cavernous depths - a transmission of once healing light  now punctured, weeping silence. Love me,  could you still? Love me, through self-loathing, imprisoned by vulnerability and despair.  With your adoration, extinguish disparaging belief. Love me,  when cold...Read On

You move with a grace I could never possess, the hem of a skirt caught in a faint breeze, bare legs revealed as the wind rose in its almost silent seasonal symphony. And as where my heart is fitful, drawing restless thunder, yours is the calm before every storm I long to know. You can summon hardness from the soft, find smoothness along stubble with delicate wandering fingertips...Read On


Beside You

She sleeps like an angel in the early morning after.

Lying still beside you, in the early morning hours, my love for you is blooming, like a field of wild flowers. Like a field of wild flowers, swaying in the breeze, my heart and soul is dancing: mind and body are at ease. Mind and body are at ease, with the perfume of last night, when we did the dance of love, and got the movements right. We got the movements right, each and every one, as...Read On



I wonder what lies beneath

Would it be okay If I stopped to say I know you Not your name That has now changed But you're still you So many before Walked out that door Just to again return Pretending to be A different somebody Some will never learn If you can't be you You can't be true So really, what's the point I shake my head At all you've said And roll up another joint Dumb myself down Dress up like a clown...Read On


Every Day's Thanksgiving

I give thanks everyday for her love sweet love.

I'm thankful for the love, I've known through the years, and the passion I've been shown, to love away my tears. She kissed away my tears, my fears, my pain, my doubts. Giving thanks for all her love, is what today's about. What Thanksgiving is about, is giving back to her, tenfold what she's done, for what we are and what we were. What we are and what we were, all comes down to love, and...Read On


The Lying Continues


The Lying Continues Like an onion peeling the layers; Your lies continue and are found. I ask myself again; how can I trust you? Or should I; that is the big question. Every day, I find something else; Every day, another event not shared but done. Can I, will I forgive you this time? I fear the end is near; for you tire me. I can't live like this; not knowing who to believe. I can...Read On


The Lie

Why did you do it? Was I not enough for you? The things you did and said, Hurt me so I must go through it. I gave you my all, My love, my life, and you took them. Only to stomp on it with your words and actions. You claim to be my best friend and my lover, But you are my enemy, my enemy of my own feelings. I love you, I want to devour you; I want to sink my teeth in...Read On


So Much More

A love that never quits.

Her smile, her touch, her breath, her kiss - is what I'm longing for, But all of her is what I miss. She's so sweetly so much more. She's the one who can complete me, when the pieces just won't fit. And did I forget to mention, I'm in the thick of it? I'm never going to quit her. Bit by bit we're growing strong. Whenever we're together, we sing the sweetest song. A song of love and...Read On


Love So Far Away

So far away but our love has never been stronger.  So far away from each other but I feel you next to me.  I think of you every day in every way.  Every heart beat is just for you.  Though we will never meet I will never let you go.  Every morning I whisper 'good morning, my love' but not to the man lying next to me.  Even though I'm not your wife I pray she makes you happy.  I'm...Read On



Only love can calm the beast within us all.

We are animals with urges, and desires we can't control. Everything about us, completes our heart and soul. Not whole until we know, what we are is true, and our urges and desires, can be kind or sad and cruel. What gets us through the night, or through a long, dark day, is bound to be alright, to keep Hell's hounds at bay. A man is incomplete, when defeat's a breath away, and there is...Read On



A bit of serenity

Am I lost Within the explanation Outside our destination Have I found A common inspiration Devoid of complication Could it be Just my imagination Of mutual admiration Where to next Without hesitation Maintained by predication Now I see Among the sublimation My own lucid fascination Come with me Enjoy this libation And peaceful acclimation...Read On


As my world spins

Written on an emotional election night...whether you smiled or cried...may God bless us all.

Kneeling at his feet, Cheek resting on his knee, Quiet and inhaling his peace, While outside the banshees scream. Hatred bubbles and roils, Tempests howl and rage, Shrieks of anger and of bitterness, The inmates rattle their cage. His hand pets my silken strands, A gentle glance across my cheek, My eyes close with pleasure, My heart sighs in relief. This man is...Read On


Over The Sea

Over the sea Awaits his love Steadfast and unchanging Her word of loyalty A comfort to him Through the darkest of times A Northern Star One fixed point throughout the instability Over the sea Awaits his hope The promise of a new love and a new life Ever present and patient Whispered promises of fidelity and loyalty Through the rugged landscape And the elemental mistress that is...Read On


Shattered Heart

My crazy love...

When I look back I feel I shouldn't have let you in You made me feel wanted You held my hand in my miseries I felt I found the one I craved You rekindled in me the lost passion Together we dove into the infinite ocean of love Finding in each other our refuge You meant the world to me I only saw you in the crowd Every second I think about you Without you I couldn't survive Why do I always...Read On
