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.

I've see the prettiest girl in town.
In her dark eyes I wish to drown.
She's the loveliest in every way,
and with her I'd want to stay.
She's like a jewel in the sky,
a perfect and wonderful star.
But though she's touched me,
the distance to her is so far.
And I'll always be sad 'cause...
She who has my universe shaken,
can never be mine...
She's already taken.

I've known you forever

Always with him

We were always together

Something happened

Something went wrong


My friend, where are you now?

Your much happier without me

Is this really how it's supposed to be?

I thought we loved each other

Maybe it was my one-sided love


I know it's been years

But even though, just a thought

It still brings me to tears...

i've shredded to many tears
enough with the sky crying
the storm is still continuing
behind those colder black eyes
when will this storm clear?
how much longer can i hold on?
this love we once shared

Written by AwakenedSea

Although I’ve never said “I love you”,
My love for you comes out of my eyes
It comes out of my skin when I sweat you
It comes out from between my thighs
From my mouth when I hear you breathing
My love for you is strange
Something I am not acquainted with
It is sudden, naïve, trusting, careless, lustful, and free
This love is new and I am wary
What do I do now with this love?
Should I leave my current cage to fly to yours?
Do I roam the earth, the seas, and the heavens alone
   to find myself = to wander towards you?
Once I leave...

We weren’t meant to last so long
not meant to grow so close.
We weren’t meant to sooth our hearts
not meant to shape our souls.
We weren’t meant to play a role
in the togetherness of life.
Never meant to have much more
but sheets soaked with stifled sighs.

Your beauty is reflected in the summer breeze,
        In the birds that chirp in spring
           In the water that runs down the stream
           The leaves that swirl by when a wind is blowing
Because you made me see this beauty,
You made me love myself: my body, my spirit, heart, and soul
 I love you

Tried to give that little fat-ass Cupid the slip
I ended up with flesh wound from his arrow tip
distress
Sweep up that shattered mess
Dust away the despair
Chop off all my hair
Change this place
Rearrange my face
Close those eyes
Zip the lip
Take an extended trip
Let go
You don't know what I know
The only real happy endings in life are paid for in it's strictly a "massage parlor"
God is actually the Marquis DeSade
Love is a fairy tale that never ends well
and I can't  ever have who or what I really want
Turn my frustration...

My words speak with swords and other sharp weapons
they stab & sting & leave you breathless
my soul explored; painted in pain
what happens when you're born in vain
But daggers did no good
They left me (broken )frozen, used
yet resurrected as He knew It would
But today I show my soul freely 'cuz
Ive grown into a woman
So, I'll share my womanhood
Trials and tribulations & it's all for the good
Sharing with you strength & mistakes
Plans I've made, ships I've sank
And with nothing to lose

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

Written by Sovereign MartingSovereign
Can you take this heart ?
i can't deal, i can't deal
you're gone
you're so far
you've moved on
i'm so behind
i'm stuck in those times
Gazing at your smile
when you're out smiling for another guy
Can you take this heart ?
take it right out
lock it within your beautiful soul
remember love
remember me
don't let me die
promise not lies
Regretful soul
i'm growing old
you were the one,
are the one
& shall forever be the one
But you can't...

I rille love this woman but she ignores my txt msg and dosnt
Answer when i call well i guess the writing is on the wall
I wish she would give me a chance i rille
Crave her romance
She has alot of shit in her life rite now i just wish she would
Say hi by or fuck off
This silence is silly its making me insane
I cant get her out of my brain
I can throw away a poison spike
But i cant forget about this bitch i like
What the fuck over
She reminds me of that song
Crimson and clover
Over and over
Crimson and clover
All i can do is just...

Thoughts of an unguided kid.
These lines
                 won't be produced
Or narrated, they will replay...
In my mind and heart
                                 Forever.
They will define my very being
And echo throughout
My soul
Forever.
Words so simple
         A kid
              So out of control.
Why did god
      Give me
             Such power...
                                   
The explanation could be in these lines,

Written by Ghost_Rider Ricky
Why is it when you break up with someone, if your that type of person and they say; I see it didn't take long for you to move on.
I suppose they haven't heard that life is too short, to be sat around mourning over a past relationship.
I guess I am a prick for being realistic.
I've been introduced to someone better than my enemies can get, and she's so in love with my sarcasm.
In the bin is not where I have left it now.
I won't go back on the promise to never let her down.
She does see that half my lyrics are poems.
The details aren't going to be vivid, because she...

she told me she loves me
i couldnt return the favour
she said im the right guy
i didn't give her the right to love

as the clouds cover me
i had to reigh on your parade

then the truth of the matter came
when i got what i really wanted
i didnt grab it

i guess we are all fools
somehow i took a leap of faith
i dont think i deserve her

but she chose to stay by my side
even conquered my pride
young love

i still havent said the three words
but i hope she knows
because this is our happy ending

crouching
slipping
falling asleep
never really known what you meant to me
fearful of his heart
and what it can do to mine
could he really love a freak of a woman
i have no talents to tell
i have so little heart to shareso why do i wish him to love me
when love always seems to fail
creatures of his nightmares
resign in my heart
all i want is him to love me
but could we even start
i have never been loved
cause everyone just seems to lie
my heart broken by fear
tears and blood fill the gaps
as i try to mend
but nothing...

My Heart is happy,
And I don't know what to do,
I like this feeling,
It Is so brand new,
My soul feels lighter,
As if the eternal clouds within me,
Have finally  lifted my hardened Demeanor,
Now soft,
My heart is happy,
I know why  she is beautiful & funny,
Smart & Kindhearted,
I think she rubbing off on me,
My spirit is up lifted,
But this sensation is new,
And I'm fearful to embrace it,
This feeling to pure so simple and basic,
This is love so I will embrace it.

Intangible night smothers my
traitorous bleeding heart.
Pushing jagged splinters through
crimson veins
beat by wounded beat.

Every stumbling step from you
tears at my fractured soul.
Forcing acid tears from emerald eyes
There is no hopeful moon
no glow to light this path.
Your face hidden I stumble in the dark
carving out every print on me from you.

There is no back
Just trough.

Beat by searing i learn i'll live.
But to kill me would be kind.

Written by miss m _shadoe_
vestiges of your penumbra tarry
pitched across my likeness
by gun metal shafts
of argent moonlight
 
your incorporeal presence, almost
tangible in the luminescence
i am rhapsodic and terrified
in an alexithymia whirlwind
 
our once oneiric trysts
are chthonic realities now
vitiating my fragile trust
and all i want is more
 
than a cicatrix map
leading to Gehenna
carved on my ebumine skin
when you sing your evensong
