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.

Pretty as a picture
Pearl in the sky
Shepherdess with her flock

You horse-whipped me
Now I'm bleeding
Are you happy?

I love you

These words that I want to hear
Over and over and over again
These words that I want to feel
For as long as the world spins
These words that mean everything
To me as long as you mean them
These three words…
Keep them sacred through all of time
Say them only for the blessed few
And show them only when you know it’s true
Those are the rules
Fallow them because they are always true and bare
Now can you please say them
Please say them in my ear
Whisper those three words I want to hear
I Love You, I Love You, I Love You dear

The sun rises in the East
And I rise from the West
Side of your bed
Still dead to the world,
You breathe in and out
The air where whispered promises
Were shouted last night
A facade in place
As I put on my dress
Draining color from my face
As I see
Your chamber's a mess
I am full of shame.
You vow to love me
Yet exchanged vows with another,
Now I am only here for duty,
My kingdom calls for a next ruler
They think me lovelorn,
Think me heartbroken ...

What am I to you
What do you see
Tell me your thoughts
While looking at me
Do you love me at all
Do you even care
You seem so distant
Although you're right there
You ignore my cries
And disregard my pain
Then act is if though
I'm going insane
Maybe you're right
And I'm losing my mind
But I've begged for help
And help is what I can't find
I've tried so hard
To gain your approval
My best endeavors
Are met with cold refusal
Just tell me the truth
What can I possibly do
Is there a...

Fruits of the vine
Sired and nurtured with by through your divinity
we been good,we been true
faithful and loyal
give all without holding back
preach and practice the principles of your gospel
patience,kindness,humility,forgiveness...
yet over and over and over
you indiscriminately keep breaking us all.
Countless times you drive us to insanity
we swear over and over and over never again
then when we least expect
you break our hearts wide open for more!
Love oh love
be gentle now,will you?
You kill us so so softly

“Por ser un hombre de valor,” me acuerdo de la boca suave de la sirena,  
“yo te doy el cavo cariñoso,  
el hogar privado de los príncipes y las hadas.  
Solo síguete como ahora ya eres  
y este cavo se llenará del olor de tu amor romántico  
como la caverna en la profundad que  
se llena del mar cristalino.  
Solo sigue maravillándome con tu lindo corazón.”  
 
Y así me  dijo ella y se desapareció en el agua de bahía.  
Ligeramente se unió con la fantasía eternal,  
su piel bebiendo la espuma blanca,

I did it again
Expected too much
Read too much into what was happening
Now it’s blown up in my face
I find myself here, writing this to you
I’ve run away
To get a different perspective
To make it all clear…in my head
Why does this pattern keep repeating?
Why can I not learn?
You made it clear from the beginning
I agreed, then somewhere along the way
I changed my mind
This life we live is an illusion
I was building an illusion within an illusion
I realize now it was a time of learning
I just couldn’t see the lesson...

The sword of your love
Had cut my heart in two
And left my heart bleeding for you
I would have given my neck for your love
But it’s my heart that you wanted.

I thought…
I thought love was a song
So I sang a chorus
I thought love was a game
So It played and played
I thought love was a dance
So it danced every step of me
I thought love was a painting
So it painted me without brushes
It painted me with the color of love
I thought love was a key
So it locked and unlocked me
Love thought love was a drink
So it drank me and drank me
I thought love was a dream
So it dreamt and dreamt me
I thought love was a house
So it built and built me
I thought love was beauty

Roses once red
  Are roses now dead
She lays in my bed
  And fucks with my head
We met when once small
  And returned once were tall
All in the while feelings had stayed
   It all turned to shit once they had laid
Now it's all gone and back to once was
   The rose that was dead is now new and red

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

Published on 18th September 2014 4:29am
Written by CaityCat
Could we maybe speak candidly
I like the way you handle me
Stay close by me when you sleep
It's a topic that we don't breach
What I'm to you and you're to me
We tip toe, we whisper, we think
All the while developing
What I'll admit are feelings
Honestly it's got me reeling
Cause honesty's such a tight fit
but so are you and I like it
I'm not sure what to say or do
So fuck it, candidly, I like you.

Poetry Kiss
Here are my poetry lips..go ahead take a nibble
Seductive is the tongue that speaks this riddle
Brushing your cheek..becoming hypnotized
Captured by the Devilish look in your eyes
Bite me..kiss me..turn up my flame
Inspire..Ignite me..feel me in your brain
When I'm gone my words remain
Lust transformed to sustain
Fantasy poetry more lines from my mind
Emotional energy continues to climb
Bringing me back to those lips
Bodies pressed together as I grip your hips
Succulent is the taste of your soul
Tongues clash dancing out...

The lies carry on and on
Although I hope otherwise
Still wishing I was the one
But reality opens my eyes

The lies carry on and on
Continuing nothing but cries
Nothing but crushed hopes and dreams
The only question to ask is why

The lies carry on and on
The pain no one will ever realize
The heart's neverending shatter
The brain stays the more wise

The lies carry on and on
Nothing left but goodbye
Straighten my posture and look in the eyes
The final words: I'm fine

that knee-jerk reaction

flinching feeling

in my stomach

overtakes my fight-or-flight mode

and sends adrenaline soaring

faster than i can

double check peripheries,
or
rationalize
                          
                                                       erratic
                        
thought

          patterns;









i can't breathe, i-

can't
be
near
you.

You are, without a doubt,
the person whom I have lied the most...Or not?
And it is because...
I don't Love you anymore...I've never have.
Trust me...I don't really need You.
I've found someone else, someone way better than you.
Can't you see I can get as many girls as I want?
Don't you know I can easily live without you?
Yes, life would be much easier without you
I honestly think you're better off without me.
And all those poems that I have whispered in your ears have been with someone else in my mind.
there were never sleepless nights because of...

This relationship shit aint working,
I used to do it all by myself for myself
now I gotta do it for both and sometimes to impress,
I used to wake up and mind my own business
now I gotta wake up and tell her how beautiful she is.
This commitment shit aint working,
I used to consult myself and weigh my views in my perspective,
now I gotta share my own goals and dreams coz another being is a new part of me,
I used to balance my left with my right,
now I gotta balance my rights with a woman who's never wrong.

Violence and Anger
My soul grows black
Blood fills these tears
As my Flesh rips apart
This Madness Grows inside
So little of me left
So little of me cares
Death takes us all
Not a word
Not a warning
But Here I remain
Clinging to the edge
I've grown so tired
I've grown so old

Broken does not begin to describe me

All i ask, all i want is for you to stay
be the one who won't go away
You don't have to be a hero to be my man
all i ask is for you to do the best you can
Just hold me close while i cry
And never never not try
just hold me close as i bleed
Listen to my words and pay heed
Life is hard but if you stay I'll always be loyal
through it all we can pretend to be royal
Together we can be what we are
And if you love you'll always be my star
Love I'll give if you give me a reason to live
I will give you all i have to give
to me...

I ride this road to no where once again
I can feel life slipping by
I see death creeping in
Drawn to this Darkness
I feel no pain
I fear no end
I want no more
I have nothing left
Never will this end
Never will this be
I have lived in this to long
I pray for death to free me

The still air
vibrates
a butterfly , scared
stagnates
new feelings
come through
a live connection
straight into view
energy starts flexing
what I'm sensing
is you.
you're in full
comprehension
let's animate the moon
give it some serious rotation .

Not everything
is planned
some things
they sprouts limbs
with hands
they come alive
by natural magic
we meet within
a skies vibe
in a dreamland
fantastic
I never walk
I fly
and I'm no
player
