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.

How would it feel
to be the little spoon
tucked away in arms of light
that kept the coldness of the dark
from seeping into a minds warmth
to put away the insecurities and ask
and find solace in the closeness of her hand to mine
to love the sound of her sleeping breath
because it is thing that gives her life
instead of exhorting the sun
to weep tears for glory
in awe of the art created
when my lips are the brush
and her body the canvas
the posturing in grand gestures
is wearisome poetry
composed of foetal...

In a
tempered manner
I remove the shrapnel that I allowed to sit
near to my heart
for close to a year
The gold has rusted from too many tears
Dented out of shape from my heart
beating against it too hard
there is no misunderstanding why I let it sit there so long
it symbolized something once
To store memories from someone who had a key
While some would just see the glowing golden heart
Yet she could touch it....if she wanted...
She wouldn't.
And for a while I forgot there...

She says she's afraid to hurt me
But not to throw me away
As she pushes away
Just a few more steps back
To the edge of that cliff
Where I finally tip
Feet over head;

An ironic adjustment
From head over heels.

I pray to the dirt gods
On my way down
That my inverted smile
Isn't mistaken
For a frown
When the ground
Splits my crown.

It wasn't that fancy

(Written a month ago)
She's the kind of woman
That every man
Wants and
A damsel in distress
With countless offers
To take her away
From all her troubles
Heaven knows
I have offered
More times
Than I care
To count.
But now so has he
Just as I'm sure
So have many
And I'm sure
Many want her
Like I do.
So why would she ever choose me?
Will she ever choose me,
Or any of these
From these masses ...

She laughed from a distance
Up close, she was actually crying
Close up, she had something in her eye
At a distance she definitely winked at me
From a distance she smiled a sexy smile
Up close she was wincing in pain
From a distance she laughed a real belly laugh
Up close she was simply screaming
From a distance she swooned as she always did
Up close she’d dropped down dead
From a distance she looked just fine to me
Up close she was broken hearted
From a distance is usually the best policy
Up close I would have had to give a shit

A Marriage of Emotions
After a short engagement
Grief married Anger
They had a difficult marriage
Grief always getting
Followed by anger
Grief snivelling as always
Anger shouting and slamming things
They went for counselling
Guilt counselled both
Anger just got angry
Grief cried a lot
An intervention by Lust
Got the marriage back on track
They had two offspring
Rage and Sadness
Rage was the apple of Angers eye
Sadness was Grief to a T
Rage couldn’t make it work
Anger was just to angry
Despite Sadness and...

With the day gone, lay your head on my chest
As I sing you a lullaby to drive you off to bed
My fingers through your hair while I sit here so lucky
Not always seeing that, you must have felt so lonely
I’ll take all the blame for my wasted lack of caring
Sometimes I feel empty when I know that I shouldn’t
Although your face still gives me purpose even in the darkest of times
Don’t ever question that, hunnie
Lay down, dream now
Come melt into my arms
Keep warm, not cold
And snuggle a little bit closer...

You once beat a fox in a sly contest,
You beat a rabbit in a homie hopping competition,
You even beat a cheetah in a race to my heart,
but above all..
you beat me,
you kicked me down to my knees and then shot me in the head with your lies,
you stood above me and watched as i bleed out every time you told me you "loved" me,
you then dragged my body down to the river and threw me in like a sack of horrible regrets,
I floated away for about the length of our trust,
I sank down to the bottom of my soul and ripped every last piece of you out of me,

Coming down
of the drug
your perfume
softly touches
tracing whispers

enabling embrace
your eyes
pipe-like arteries

Wind rises
taking aloft
hushed breaths
to live with
an undefined beauty

Hypodermic insertion
of the drug
your affection
prescription expiration

let me sing you to sleep
run my fingers across eyelids
and fevered brow
until you relax

do not fret about tomorrow
we will handle it when it comes
for now just listen
let my voice gently pull you under

sink into warm blankets
and my fierce need to protect
and soothe and love
i will be here when you wake

You type exclusively in text lingo
You swear you love me then you go
You love to make me cry every night
All I want you to do is hold me tight
And never want to let me go at all
All you ever have done is let me fall
I guess you couldn't see how much you mean
I guess you just can't see or glean
I don't think you quite understand
How much I ache for you to take my hand
Hold me close and make my tears go away
How will I make it through when it's this way?
What can I ever do to make you get this
When all I ever do is dream...

Little girl.. don't you put a lock on your life..
You have alot more ahead of you.
You drown your sorrows out,
You feel as if you should hide..
Your "escape" isn't booze.
Little girl don't keep everything hidden inside.
There's far more out there than you believe.
Please don't give up, promise me..
You can have fun again,
if you'll only have a sense of pride.

I close my eyes everyday
And open them to see your frowns fade away.
I can't help but think that you are mine
And will always be until the end of time.
Your green eyes comfort my soul
And your cute little freckles make me whole.
You say we're friends but I wanna be more
But all this trouble is making me hit the floor.
Knowing you, you'd pick me back up
And brush off the dust as if you've had enough.
I put myself through hell everyday
To see if I am yours to slay.
Your so silly that it makes me grin
And fill my heart full of...

The in-law vultures are circling
With their knives of black
Their only motive
To put it in her back

But will they be content
When they have delivered their load,
And returned to their deep dark holes
Not a bit!

They will return when she is weak
Plot, plot some more
Squawk and shriek
Like a pack of wild geese

To tweak and preen
And twist that knife in
That little bit more,
Just as they did before

My thoughts are stars
I cannot fathom into constellations.
And I've decided a while ago
Not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence.
All efforts to save me from you will fail.
I know love is just a shout into the void,
And that oblivion is inevitable…
But you realize that trying to keep your distance from me
Will not lessen my affection for you.
I fell in love with the way you fell asleep;
Slowly, then all at once.
Maybe we’re all doomed
And there will come a day when all our hard labor has been returned to...

Are you blind to me, do you even see
the words I say they all mean what I be
Do you even listen or are they thrown away
Understand I'll give everything to you

if you'd just listen and believe me anyways
We could be surfing this infinite universal highway
If you'd just listen to the words I say.

I heard your name, that's when I knew it was you.
The one my time was meant to be spent to.
That moment you became mine felt so right.
You've got me grinning like an idiot each day.

I couldn't believe I've been made a fool.
Seems my taste in ladies is sweet but quickly turns sour.
Such a pretty waste, lady don't you understand.
Your deceitful smile no longer holds true to me.

The kindness you once gave me.
Itself was a lie.
The truth is a bitter mistress
but more faithful than you could ever be...
