Love Poems

Poetry about lost love, heartbreak and relationship problems

Previously covering both the sides of love, this section now focuses on poems about the dark side of love, heartbreak and the hurt caused by lost love. Happy love poetry now finds a home in the "upbeat poems" section. This category is reserved for love poems about troubled friendships and relationships and it's where poets offload emotional pain inflected by (ex) boyfriends, girlfriends, wives, husbands, family and friends. Which all begs the question, what is love anyway? Maybe you'll find out here.

The ball is on your court, the move is yours.
Be quiet or shout, be my guest.
I'll settle with what could have been;
I know you won't play my game.
And though some would dread the shame,
And go out with their face hidden,
I refuse on friendly terms,
I'm proud to have done what I did.
No response, no reply, that's all right,
No being like you seem to be,
Nothing really, no image or sound,
But nothingness is clear and loud.
I've always been this way,
I've always rather know than doubt,
And now...

A firewall surrounds heavenly drifts cast upon the love neglected...so burn your wicked soul as you come to me as pure.

You live inside me
A part of me that no longer lives
Yet you doÖ

You speak to me
Unexpectedly
In ghostly voices you whisper to me
And every time
Itís a brand new blade upon my heart

Iím surprised because I know what you are
And I donít want you
Yet I love you still
Even though I donít want to
I do
Even though I know what you are
Youíre still a blade upon my heart

I held on to this picture
For so many years
Every time I look at it
I'm brought to tears
You don't know how many times
I tried to set it on fire
And get rid of the pain
From this useless desire
But I just couldn't do it
It's the last thing I had
That was symbolic of a time
Before things got so bad
I often take random trips
Down memory lane most days
Wondering where on the road of life
We went our separate ways
As I look at this picture
It was just last week
I had finally got up the nerve
To...

Hi. You don't know me.
My name. My face.
I know you.
Well, what you show of you.
This is too forward.
I probably really am no lady.
You're from the land of the Queen
And my country only produces great Beauty Queens.
Sir, it is you in my dreams.
When I close my eyes
I see your green ones.
They remind of better days.
Of sunlit meadows and wildflowers
And golden eyes, and forever.
That crooked smile that makes my thoughts run for miles
From my mind to my fingertips...
Maybe further below from my hips.
I am ashamed while...

Call it a Dream
I see it Fulfilled
As yet, may not seem
Believe or not its real
Amid zero and decimal
I'm a lonely integer
Craving for another number
Love to cross a border
I'm so single like 1
Hoping for a turn
To my left is Zero
To my right is a point
Far beyond point is you
A step beyond Zero is 2
To my heart u are 1
To my sight you are 8
Swiftly, i crossed the border
Neither the eyes nor heart is wrong
A pretty Figure 8 encapsulated in 1
Her eyes beget love, her lips so tender.
Added up like addition...

ďNothing In The Universe, Is As Beautiful As You.Ē

That Is If, The Universe Itself Is One Man.

And His Center Of His World, A Beautiful Woman.

A Man Who's Love, Is As Vast As The Depths Of The Blacken Void Of Space.

Iím Stuck In The Gravitational Pull, The Milky Way Is Our String.

Not Even The Speed Of Light Could Compare, To How Much I Love Him.

That Tieís Us Together, And The Scattering Of Stars.

Burning So Bright, Like The Memories We Have Shared.

There's a feeling that floats by
not so often as before
it used to hover above
life's every banality
and hum its way into the heart
of moments beneath the music
of shy glances
and glimpsed pictures
of private smiles
emotions stoked and stroked
within the colour of every song
until bruised fingers start to stain
and tinge the strings and keys
with hues of bitterest blue
now and then
the music still sounds as sweet
as when first it rang
to call words and feelings true
but now the magic lies ...

Her heart was a fire
Intense with unquenchable desire
She wanted genuine, unquestionable, unequivocal love
Searching for an honorable man in a desert land
Do noble hearts still exist
Can they survive in the wilderness
Or do we all wander in vain
having lost the fire in the rain

DU Poetry : Love Poems and Poetry about Heartbreak, Lost Love and Relationship Problems

Published on 23rd October 2014 4:15am
Written by trouble8me
Are you ready for this one when she knows
how to dry concrete in the middle of snow?
Are you ready to have your mind put to test
when she tempts your answers just to beg for rest?
Are you ready for this one to move you fast
into the euphoria of pleasure from a pancake stack?
Are you working a little shy of your regular time
when she asks you at lunch what you're doing tonight?
Are you falling for the idea that has waited in your head
when imagining how good she smells lying close in bed?
Are you clouded by the present day, unaware of what's...

When you left you Took a Part of Me With You,
And Now I Feel Empty,
The Seams Came Undone, Now I Cry Everynight, Looking at What I've Become,
I Want to Feel Whole again,
To Smile. And Laugh.
But That's Impossible Now,
Because Your gone.. And I Can't Focus Anymore.
Your Always There.
I Try and Push you out of My Mind, But It never Seems to Work,
Now I Feel as If I Have Zero Worth,
People Bring You up Into Conversations..
It Hurts so Fucking Bad.. It Won't Go away..
When you Left you Took a Part of Me With You,
And Now I'm Not Whole,

Sad songs sang from the speakers in her truck
Parked on the south face of the hill by his house
Blamed the tears in her eyes on the sun in her face
Still perched on the bench seat
She pulled out a shiny metal friend, hidden in the ash tray
Watched the tiny reflection from the light bounce on the ceiling
As she twirled it slowly with the tips of her fingers
Examined her midriff
It was clean and smooth and pale
Just one touch, she thought
Wretched ecstasy illuminated in her mind
As she drug the blade across...

If I should ever make you cry
It should come with a smile
If I should ever make you sleep late
It should be by my side
If I should ever make you think
It should be of our moments
If I should ever make you wish
It should be an us that last for ever
If I should ever make you scream
It should because we're having mad fun
And if I should ever be happy
It should be because I didn't make you do the otherwise.

I am torn between two ends:
the burning passion of desire
and the sharp songs of seclusion.
What am I to do with you?
Is love that flares as high as can be
be more than enough for you and me?
Enough to overcome patience
that runs as thin as clear ice
and a lonely heart longing to be free?
For nothing now compares to our days spent.
But I fight everyday to keep what we have left.
Fire and ice, which will it be?
Is love enough to keep you and me?

Wrap yourself with me
Under my toasty knit blanket
I never loved anyone like you
Whilst frosty crystals float
On the roof above us
It's a different world
In your arms
The gleaming inferno
Swaying in the fireplace
So perfect, So in place
Comforting silence
I hear you breathing
Our lips lock
Sweet brown sugar
You hold me tight
Hot gingerbread
I know I'm in love
I feel as high
As the stars above
I feel precious and beautiful
When I'm in your warmth
Wrapped in your protection
Baked...

You~ Me:
Itís a story of passion
Intertwined into a dream
It was a beautiful ~ magical thing
He was exotic~ a lake fish swimming in the deep
She was hypnotic~ a woman-child running free
He had layers of fresh scares~ they healed over pain
She has her past~ it conditioned her to be a certain way
Itís a lesson of hope
Webs weaved with unbridled realities
It is lies, deceit, and the destruction of humanity
Up high on a mountain~ the sky is choked black
The people are simple and peaceful, but they are scared that~
The cries...

There was a day, very long ago it seems that I was never actualy sure I would make it, that I would live without you the way I have.And the fact that you can live without me too hurts....we dont speek like we used to in the context or the timeing and I miss it. I miss calling you on any night I could and talk till 3 am. I miss the sundays we spent in my moms apartment cooking. I miss a song coming on the radio in the store and you would sweep me up and start danceing. I miss laying with you and knowing I was safe. All of this is gone now of corse. But if your reading this, and I hope you do,...

He mastered the art of holding her heart to ransom until he filled her soft yielding folds with his love after being tangled in a heated moment of deep hard grinding upon unspoken deliberations and long passionate kisses, as he signed himself upon her in the still of the dark, once upon a time.
Invading her in such a way that left her tangled and breathless upon his flawless flowing precipitations, leaving her weak and quivering like a leaf on the drift were enough to hold her heart steadily, yet unequivocally, he tormented her in a bittersweet tirade as she was astute and...
