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.

Iíll run to you,
Even if you only last a moment.
I want to create this memory with you.
Even if itís sad,
Even if it makes me mad,
Even if itís full of regrets.
Because darling this life moves too fast.
I promise to make mistakes with you.
I promise to shock your eyes with the color red.
Hold my hand and leave your mark.
Take me to the highway.
I want it all to be a blur.
Iíll take the toxic taste of your kiss.
Iíll run to you,
Even if you ruin me.

Those old menthols.
I smoke them to remember you.
It was before I quit the nasty habit when I met you.
You were dark and somewhat mysterious.
You listened to heavy metal and always wore black.
But you were older and ambitious,
The type of guy I wanted.
I would smoke a menthol before visiting you.
You never liked my smoking so I quit.
But then you left me for the sunny state.
So now Iíve returned to that one menthol off a friend when I got the chance.
Those old menthols.
I smoke them to remember you.

He found a storm in a keyhole
as he tried
with muffled fingers to clutch
at a thing that would be
it was such a tiny thing
but hungrier for it
with its trailing, flailing arms
and weakly wailing words
just strong enough
to wrench a drop of rain
from a peeking eye
latched like starved lips
on fickle promises of love
it seeped through a glance
to a place of bitter salted soil
fertile ground for raising storms
that burst and bluster
and force their way into the world
as acid winds †
to raze...

Every day, every hour, every minute
Losing myself in my thoughts
All of them being the same
Missing you is all that is on my mind
Not hearing your voice, the sweet melody within
Agonising at each passing moment
Each moment unbearable as the last
Very little will left in myself to do anything
All the pain a fault of my own
Trying my hardest for us to be together again
Only made things worse, oh how I have really stuffed up
I can understand why you must be fed up with me now
I hope that there is still something there for us

I could have been basking in all of the glory.
In first place, on the winners podium
You cheated, you stole my place
I am forced into second, behind you
Covering me I am cast in your shadow
No light on me Iím now always in the dark.
"I'll always be by your side" you promised.
But not like this. THAT WAS MY VICTORY!
I am so much more worthy than you,
you know it well, you see it clearly,
that's why you're so pleased to stand there
You'll always see it, the judges never will,
Those that judge don't see.
You crossed the...

1.Holding her hands
Eye's then closed
Fresh deep breath
World didn't matter




2.Glittering blindness alluring
Collapse strenght, giving in
Crystal clear cravings
Blurred love so strong




3. Shared hurricane sins
Denied this reality pains
Our chains unbreakable
 † † † † † † for this love.

(The challenge was to keep it 50 words or less.)

Tears still seep from the void,
The blackened pit, of a heart destroyed.

My blood runs viscous, and cold,
In the baleful shell of a love untold...

My inner abyss...pulls me in,
Drawing strength from sorrows therein.

Calamitous destruction from my core,
Consumes me...till I am no more.

I see evermore the eye that is yours
and be so bold that the hand that I may hold till love lives no more is yours
With this you now do take the final leap of fate into the unforgiving void
And will be assured that I will catch you in mid-flight to embrace you in my arms
and solemnly swear to shield you from all that is impure
and vow that when all is done and worlds divide
I will be there for you.

Walking with no destination.
Making turns
Left, right then left again.
Going around in circles.
Came acrossed you,
Not knowing you'd become a great part of my life.
On that crazy roller coaster holding on tight.
Up, down, left, right
We have our struggles,
But our love is strong..
Getting closer to where I need to be.
Forward, backwards
No just move on forward,
Backwards is to much pain...
Safe and sound in your arms.
I've been where I needed to be all along.

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

Published on 27th April 2015 5:16pm
Written by Virginiapetal
I didnít get out of bed
For two days
After you swept in
With torrential rains
And bleeding winds
I gave you
My vulnerable, riverless veins
Aching for you †
To persuade the vultures
Circling up ahead
To abandon their quest.
And for a moment
The needle plungedÖ
I still see you
Peering so deeply
Into my soul
That the air around us
Paused for breath. †

Sometimes i wonder
I wonder about how it would've been if i'd known her a little sooner
Maybe if what was needed was done then who i want i would have
Our time together is precious so I want to make the best of it
I long for her all day long and I wish i could hold her in my arms forever
when i look into her eyes she makes me weak
When i wrap my arms around her its like my sensation reaches its peek
I don't know what it is that her presence does to me but it got me actin' in such a crazy way
And the way she walks makes the movement of her hips hypnotic

Though words need only to be few
my entrance will indeed be grand
to speak many words would be of
small consequence
when the colour I wear will speak
many.
The actions louder still.

Let me readress the situation
linger upon this beautiful thought,
my mind, †
been so singular in you †
that I know little of past passages walked

Though with you it feels as it always was
yesterday
today
and tomorrow
combining into one sound wave
becoming creatively just so
complete. †

Was I born with the love
This daily smile I give
that you just damn well know
is for you only
and I'd give everytime ...

Looking at you
Ripples of sadness climb up my back
like angry worms digging their way to the surface of their tin cup
not because looking at you makes me angry
but because I should be that girl standing next to you
the one with her hair up in ribbons wearing that fake smile
like she could ever understand you the way I did.
The way I still do.
Even though years have passed and you are no longer the you I once knew
Time passes and you don't even know it.
Just one day you wake up and your skin is gray.
You look in the mirror and all of your fears have...

Cloudy daylight
Party perfect
Dash of perfume
Sky full of stars
And us, together
Is it dangeró
Or delight?

Reality destroys gardens
The way night leaves
A trickling of white wine
Across my senses
Winter makes imprints
While the snow falls
I remember you
And what you did to me.

Bless me Father for I have sinned
Forgive me Father for I want to sin a whole lot more
It's Scarlett's fault my Lord
Oh - Scarlett Johansson ...
You may have heard of her
Fuck she's hot!
Sorry Lord
But she really is
Check her out Lord
If you haven't already
Yeah right - omnipotent etc.
Lord, I don't want to sound like a total retard
But if I could please have ...
A Scarlett Johansson doll ...
Oh Lord - I would be eternally grateful
More than grateful
If I had a spare soul left to sell
Lord - I'd do it all for her
She's so...

With cyanide kisses
and chlorine eyes
She left me blind
to all her lies
As mad as a hatter
with twice the charm
They failed to warn me
of the harm
Convinced me that
I could not fall
And left me feeling
two foot small
Right through the cracks
she disappeared
Left me to get me
as I'd feared
And in a flood
the fuel returned
She struck the match
and watched me burn

can i feel a little love?
can a broken heart heal,
if it's been ground to
dust?
will the lion lye down
with the lamb,
if i kneel down beside the
burning bush.
will you be my love?
my pillar of strength?
will you lift me up,
when i'm feeling weak
clandestine angel,
you appeared in my
dreams.
who's going to save
me.
from this loneliness,
and misery.
will you be my love?
my pillar of strength?
will you lift me up,
when i'm feeling weak?
it's been a long road,
but maybe tomorrow...

with your last breath,
you whispered in my ear.
you loved me 'till death,
your so glad i could be
here.
i don't want you to go,
but heaven can't wait.
be free my little angel,
now there's no more pain.
i loved you 'till death...
now,
forever and a day...
it's been a long time,
since i've seen your
face...
still i think about you,
every single day.
i miss you so much,
i'm just wasting away.
with my last breath,
she whispered in my

you loved me 'till death,
