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.

You’re my mother tongue
My skin, my bones, and my flesh
You’re my comfort zone

You’re my open mind
My folly of love, my guide
You’re my equipoise

You’re my blessedness
My muse, my rose and my thorn
My balancing act

You'll be my sorrow
My sore heart's piercing arrow
My fake tomorrow

I imagine that you will find yourself in love
You will be happy
You will be bliss
Then one night you wake up
At two A.M. In her bed
Sad, lonely
Thinking how did it all come to this
Put on clothes and go for a walk
Try to think things through
Come back
Leave a note
Think: it's not me, it's you
But you lie in the note
Saying you are feeling off
Saying anything but the truth
But here already you know it's over
Then maybe you drag it out
It was so great at the start
And when the end finally comes
It's tinged with...

Judas Iscariot
Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes.
Proverbs 6:25
What’s the reason for the things I’ve been doing? I’m moving away from the foundation because something has been brewing.
I try to be honest, I try to be selfless, I try to keep promises, but yet I’m still helpless                        Cuz’ my feelings are flying away, I can’t feel em’ I’m trying to pray                                                 But the spirit of Love is above and distrust mixed with Lust is a bloodsucking bug biting the skin of...

But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:11


In between the two,
I am,
And my soul feels the tension.

I pray,

And as my pen sings it’s blues,
My hands stand by hope still wishing…

That Love would go the distance and hate would go missing.
Broken-hearted by the war between black and white.

Racism must die.

I have known you
   a thousand years
I have called out for you
  to hold me tight
I know you
  as well as I know my most inner secrets
 My desire for you is unending and habitual
  Peace and tranquility are all I feel when you think of me
  and I can feel it through the distance
   These things are as real as it gets
   Although we haven't  met

Everyday I see you
Moment starts
time slows , sound fades, I can only hear your heartbeat.
feels like we are the only 2

Im surprise you don't catch me staring at
no, im not stalking
your beauty just steals my eye
Your smile takes my words

I feel ashamed in myself
I never have guts , to ask you out.
when we talk,  I'm so shy.
I stumble on my words you have that effect
I try to be perfect
to  match it with your Ego.

WHO says this is easy?

You sleep soundly
 your hand upon my chest
making me aware of my own breathing
 I lay wide awake
careful not to disturb you
Another sleepless night
 I bask in your warmth
and feel alive as I lay very still
 thinking of you and how you rescued me
from a the fate of a lonely man
I love you
  always have
even before we met
 I knew your soul
and you touched mine
I have been patiently waiting
 in the shadows
between love and time

I was Jack and you were Sally.
Our love is now, never coming back.
Riches of happiness, stripped in Death Valley.
My grave was dug, in the hole in my heart.
Your hand's been on the knife since the very start.
Waiting in the shadows, watching my world slowly fall apart.
Back and forth, we've said those words.
The words that sent us soaring like birds.
Just memories now, like broken records.
You were the one, my burning sun.
We had so much fun, while I still called you 'hun'.
Our time is done, and I'm on the run,

Follow through ? When I could just walk away without looking thirsty.
Its crazy because I've never been the first to leave.
But I just feel so sexually attracted to you.
I feel my whole mood change when you touch me.  
I wish I could tell you.
But you're a guy you'll never see.
If I wanna fuck I am thirsty.
Friends with benefits never last anyway.
So I guess in the backround I'll stay.

Pompously broadcasting
My Heart’s death
From the same lips
That once whispered sweet EVERYTHINGS
Reenacting the fall of Gods before
That slept with the daughters of man
I stand accused
The Evidence is more than circumstantial
Guilty as presumed
The emotional capacity is too limited
To achieve
The Mental
Or Physical Fifth Dimension
Which is why those beautiful lexes
Can turn to Venomous
Dark Incantations
Meant to wreak havoc on the...

Standing alone, in this bitter cold
Thinking of you
The only warmth to my dark soul
A sacred heart of truth
Sleeping alone, in this bed of death 
My chest becomes erect 
Creating shivers down below
My hair tangles in a mess 
Suddenly I've lost all control 
There is something I must confess
You're strange though a beautiful soul
The mate to my dreary marrow
I love you so deep so  
Buried that you will never know 
Spoken word a secret fantasy
Our story has yet to unfold

How do I heal
When I keep cutting my feel?
How do I real
When I keep numbing my feel?
How do I stop
When there is no feel left to heal?

As to a misty mountain
Along the edge of Big Sur,
To stand back
Quietly to observe.
A skin so satin and fine
Gentle, you swirl the crystal of red wine.
Do you like candles, at night?
Their way of casting shadows,
Flicking…the wild in your eyes.
The whispering mind ...
To be let let your soul touch, .
caress and stroke...empower,
To run our hands, over our souls
As to the crystal of a gypsy’s ball, should behold,
so to begin...?
Quietly I still observe
As to a master piece …
A print, a...

I know you hate me right now
for being a dishonest ex whore
I wouldn't have eaten back in the day
without men like you
not jaded by any means
I felt cherished out there on the streets
wish I could say I was a high class call girl
my self esteem wasn't so great in those days
I love womanizers doesn't make sense to some
though I do my daddy was one and I loved him
he stuck by me when my mom didn't
I love you as you are...

so now what we have
is a failure to complete
that fairy tale love story
because a heart was weak
this tale that i will weave you
it is intense
and it is coarse
this tale that i will weave you
ends with no remorse
it started with a princess
and a peasant, how absurd
the princess was caged in his hands
singing softly like a bird
she felt the need to fly again
she ached, oh, to be free
love had once befallen them
but now his heart was weak
he mingled low with jealousy
his fear his trusty steed
and even though...

Hhm Soulmate?
I guess, you're just spectacular,
I don't know what it is or how it came to be but you're my dear soulmate.
I suppose we had an instant attraction that took a while to express,
Thousands of feelings that we desperately tried to suppress.
But I suppose things just have a way of working themselves out,
Removed everything that stopped us from finding out,
the good bad truth
we are soulmates.
I'm attracted to you,
and like a bug i just fly conscious-less towards the light,
I just cant resist, I can barely put up a fight.

When I was young
I cried for no one I drowned my sorrow
 In pride f being dry-eyed.
And inside of me a dam of tears not shed
I had a dog she lived to fourteen I borrowed
A spade and dug her deep into the soil.
The dam busted.
For days I cried for my parents, siblings,
The dog and all those
I loved so deeply but never said I did.
Old now I cry easily when seeing children and animals
Being harmed
And it pines me to know
This is the way of the world and no God
Around the corner to save us.
