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.

My memories of you are incomplete,
at my own expense,
I erased.
One fight,
rings loud,
and kills me inside.
That night brings me to my knees,
when I remember.
I would,
at any moment,
trade that night,
for one more hint,
at our past happiness.
The bottle burned,
my throat,
and my conscience.
The fire set ablaze,
your face and mine,
as well as the time,
and place.
At some point,
I want to see you again,
but not until I remember,
a past moment,
with you.
I cannot say,
I remember your voice,...

Written by JohnFeddeler

sleep must be something thatís
awarded only to the dead
you contemplate things like that
when itís late & youíre alone again
on another endless night
staring out the window at the
sorrowful rain that makes it seem
like everything out there is crying
thatís when they get up & dance again
those memories buzzing in your head
like piano melodies haunting the cracked
leatherette stools of a long-lamented
boarded up roadhouse
heartbreak thatís gone mellow over
the solitary years but still lingers...

One last night
Iíll lie awake
And write Ďtil my heartís content

Iíll imagine everything I could be with you
Iíll envision every single possibility

Iíll transfer thoughts to words
Iíll inscribe them here on this blank white page

Iíll tell myself things can be different
Iíll contemplate all the things I can change

Then Iíll return to my clockwork routine
Iíll sleep
And Iíll be back again tomorrow night

Solar powered,
Your heat spurs
me to giggle!

I am seemingly
overwhelmed
when You comet
near, near me.

No room to
move, though
I struggle
to wriggle. . .

Just playiní You know
from my galaxy
You see me
and when I see You
I twinkle
as the little star
I am.

One day,
Iíd love for You
to collide into me
and help me create
a rippling nova
of love.

"I love you", you said.
Your words so empty and cold
Only because you were afraid to be old and alone.
Now is that love my dear?
Or only forced feelings out of fear?
I fell for you
Believing your every word to be true.
But then one day our "love" had run its course
And you had not even a single remorse.
You had met someone else
And I hope that you don't tell lies to her as well.

-S.P

You stole my heart
And left me with no choice
But to steal yours too...

Written by Clint Avery Ace_Avery
I find myself
searching for the words
to change
the way we look
at what we name love;
we don't call it,
we define it,
give it purpose.
I say "I love you"
because I can survive
without you,
I have a life all my own,
yet you make it worth fighting
to stay together.
I love my family,
my friends,
my passions,
my hobbies,
and my love for you
differs from them all.
It's a feeling that takes over
my body and I can feel it
when I'm with you
and without you.
So say our love is like no...

spellbound
eyes to eyes
caught dancing

perfect harmony
dazzles darkness

tender enough

Remember me when you're gone,
Anytime you play that slow song,
When the night's calm,
When you fall asleep in his arms.
Remember me when you smile,
When excitement fills those pretty eyes,
When the wind is soft and moist,
Replay my whispering voice,
Remember me in your sweetest thoughts,
Somewhere in that secret vault,
Save a special place for me,
And remember me endlessly.
Remember me when to yonder you look,
As that fascinating book,
That was judged by the cover,
Considered unworthy...

Before I go on with this poem I'd like to say this poem is dedicated to Michael Jackson since today is his birthday and he would've been 56 years old. I will always love him and wish he'd be here and there's never a day when I don't still think of him. R.I.P Michael Joseph Jackson 1958-2009.
Michael, oh the world was so pleasant and yet filled with so much pain
that you tore down.
Michael, oh Michael you brought us to our knees
as we begged " please, please, please!".
Michael, oh Michael why did you have to go so soon?,
Now that you're gone there is no tune that...

Some...Some...
Somewhere...
Someplace...
In this world
Somehow...
There's a word
Someone...
Need to say
It's not a child's play
Sometime...
She kneel to pray
Just to show
Somebody...
That she care
In her own way
Sometime...
She stand and fight
Just to bring light
Something...
Is with her to give
Pure as love
That land like a dove
From the sky above
Expecting nothing
From anybody
She's a giver
Not a taker
Someday...
She gave a man
Some...some
And from her hive...

I guess im wrong for many
But as I write I live
The time to forget about love has come
Im giving up and I surrender...
I can't fight the feeling
I can't join it either
Im just a clown with bullets as prayers...
Reaching the moment
Blowing my fucking mind away everyday
With no peace but this poems
Dehydrated stanzas...
im ok if I dont see you
But the moment you walk in
An orgy of hopes I become...
Am I just fooling myself ?
The path made of moonlight...
The delicacies of your gestures
I can see myself in...

There's such
a presence
to her essence
Yet, I can't be sure
still I think it's
her allure...
casual,
demurely designed
so perfectly aligned
her allegiance I vow


prancing like peacock,
defiantly proud
gosh damned I gotta
say out it †loud...

NOW THAT
is a real woman!
alas, I'm simply
just lost inside
my mind's
'room' †again...

Lost from the world
Our lives seem so empty.
Vacant from how we use to be.
Everyone searching for it blindly.

Daisies change color by the hour
But love is love
So who gives a fuck about flowers?

Two minutes from death
Feels like home

When life has no value
Death has its price

One more time ill die
Just to live this lie
One more time ill live
Just watch you leave

The price of sin holds me here
As the darkness follows

Please take me home just one last time
