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.

Written by heart_forrent
Hope is now lost.
But my heart doesn't know.
It continues to love you no matter the cost.
My mind wants to go
It knows the deal
But it won't change how I feel
Because my mind has long since lost control
Of it's own thoughts
Sometimes I wish I could scrape my thoughts into a bowl
And pick out the unwanted ones and leave them to rot
You love him not me
My heart just can't see
Why yours won't stay beside it
My mind wonders what happens in yours
Bit by bit
Board by board
I build my own coffin
All hope is lost.
But my heart...

Brain uploading rebooting
visionary sensory switching on
In three..two..one..
 
Good good, he's still here
create morning smile
snuggle in real close
 
switching off visionary, sensory
brain on standby,
switching over to fantasy thoughts again
in three..two..one

Written by MC Scenario
I'm tired and I'm cold.
All of these questions are growing old.
I hate to say this but,
most secrets are just better left untold.

You are so brave.
I've seen you talk about pretty much everything,
from that time you tossed your cookies on your homework
in seventh grade
to when your mother passed away
a couple years back.
I even remember when you talked about how your dad
had that heart attack.
I memorized
how your eyes
looked when you were sad
so I could
prevent that
in the future.

He likes my cooking
but doesn't have a clue
where I've been.
He loves making love to me
but doesn't know how good I feel,
just being his Thursday, piece of ass.  
He treats me with respect
but doesn't know what it's like when
I'm crazy enough about him
to break every last dish in his cupboard.
He says he wants to marry me but
doesn't know the infatuation it takes
to put a baby in me.
He cares about me
but doesn't know the luxury
of me lying to PD,
to spare him 10
but risk me, 5. ...

It was a vivid scene that I dreamed
 
You had lost trust in me now..
 
For me to be far away from you
 
I could no longer speak with you
 
Silence between us and the only sound..
 
..That broke it was our hearts beating
 
You wanted nothing to do with me
 
And even as I awake from this dream
 
I know that It'll always be true
 
Because in my heart I know
 
Its too good to be true..
 
"..I will never be loved by you.."

The Mathematics of myself
If I add love and power to my soul
And take away emotion
Will that leave pi?
A circular whole.
If I divide my body into four
Will that leave people wanting more?
Or will they be able to see the root?
My core.
And if I add 1 and 1
And remove 2
Will that mean I am 0?
Nothing?
If I became a decimal point
And move one place
Will I be have more meaning
Or have I just been replaced?
Change + the x order + of = me (If you)
Will I work better?
Or just be more confused?

Golden light leaks out of the broken clouds
I see it as I approach the top of the hill
It takes me back to the time when you said you were so broken, you didn't think anybody could ever love you
Well, I did
I loved every broken part of you
I got to see the parts of you that you so often hid away, waiting for someone to care enough to pry you open
And I did
Not all the way
But enough to realize you weren't this uncaring, heartless person I thought you were
You have a heart
Such a beautiful, loving heart that has felt such relentless heartache that you...

At days end this journey begins, alone now here are we two.
Looking to each other, for something simple, shiny, and new
Want as deep as the night, gilded in silver and black.
Hoping to find together, separate that which we lack
So lounge in your darkest of passions, savor your sweetest desire
Share them now and come with me, dancing into the fire.
Sway now my lovely companion, join me here in the flame.
Leave your world far behind you, abandon worry and shame.
As love and lust struck together, forged in a furnace of...

You ran away at eighteen--
From youself and
From your tragic past.
You found yourself while
Dancing alongside a pole
With money all around you.
Never desired the way you deserved,
You became the epitamy of desire.
You spin, slip, and strip--
Lights flashing in your eyes
Making you glow for those alone.
You hide the deep razor cuts and
Bruises on your arms with heavy make up.
You put on the fake smile and...

Written by Kabuki
Excited is mild
Compared to
Butterflies wild
Fluttering through
Cascading and
Ricocheting off
The inside walls
Of my incarnate
Shell.

If it were
At all possible,
Once melted,
My giggling heart
Would not
Be babbling
To a frenzied boil
For tomorrow
My love flies from
Her magickal misted
Lands, only to fall
Into me,
Physically
Spiritually
And
Speechless,
I too, fall
And fallen
Anew.

Shhhhh,
I listen for
Her breathing.

Misty morning and I woke up
Evidently I missed
You. . .
Your –
 “Good Morning; hope You slept well,”
Post or the Host lost it, again.
I had no idea
None at all until today
How I look
And in looking forward
Eager to peruse the daily morning
Hug
The internet kiss on my cheek
You seemingly do effortlessly for me,
To me.

On a side note:
Despite a louder than normal
White noise
I heard that Sparrow, again,
As if she were in the room with me.

Hmmm,
I wonder……..

yellow rose of friendship I gave you years ago
burning in the flames of my wounded heart
ignited by spoken betrayal from your lips
it's all I can do to breathe or smile
when my reflection is a vision of you
soul sulks as my purple heart weeps black
trusted you with secrets under my skin
you traded real sweetness for something fake
didn't value true faithfulness and devotion much
confusion made you think I deceived
would've thought you'd known me better
specially thinking my sweet friend betrayed...

Wet lashes raise
to a red sunset
Wilting over ashtrays
and seas of memories dead
Beautiful, twisted and crazed
Impaled with Darkness and Regret
maybe if the smoke gets thick
and her eyes glaze
She'll learn how to forget
the dull throbbing, nagging ache
Of words long ago said
Promises long ago made
Promises that were never kept

A flower amongst flowers
Sure, I love to watch you
And to compare the beauty
You are the most beautiful
You like to smell one flower
To get drunk of its aroma
But it is me who becomes
Crazy, smelling your scent
And you nuzzle on another
To be sure it suits with smell
But I wish to taste your skin
So pure, so silky as a petal
Suddenly you get sleepy
Intoxicated by these flavors
And I am unable to move
Mesmerized by your beauty

Because of you, I learned what a amazing is
Because of you, I learned true passion
Because of you, I became more than I was alone
Because of you, I learned that I had a path, a future
Because of you, I learned I wanted to know everything about you
Because of you, I wanted to be by your side
Because of you, I learned what a perfect connection is
Because of you, I learned there was more to this life
Because of you, I wanted to explore every inch of that
Because of you, I learned what true love is

My heart is broken and destroyed,
I feel so lonely and so void,
I feel this emptiness within.
You were so cute, you were so nice,
you were so beautiful and I've
been the happiest of men.
You lift me up, when you're just there
but now I'm down, this feels not fair.
How can you break me so easily?
Another year till I'll see you,
that's too long, what should I do?
I don't want you to part from me.
I never told you how I felt,
you never knew the doubts I held
and tomorrow you'll be gone away.
I think I loved you...

Make love to me baby:
Tell the children
No more
All the old are gone
Time for the new ones
Don’t do it the old way, REMEMBER! It failed them, back in the day
No more
Tears are all gone
Make love to me - baby
Make love to me - baby
Look out, and watch the sea ~ its opening
Global aspirations inhibited once, by the divide
Now together: you lay here with me
Make love to me - baby
Make love to me - baby
Solomon was… a wise king
You are greater: I love...

Each day with unending smiles.
Each day in undying pain.
You're a constant thought...running through my mind...
remembering only the bad, forgetting the good.
Even if for one moment you were sincere, you took my heart,
you killed "it" in an instant.
Tell me this...what did you have to gain?
You had my trust, my faith that you'd over come, my strength...
what more did you want?
It's sad to think you tossed me aside to quickly...for someone who treated
you just the same...
Its laughable that you've consumed my brain....
