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.

The only rule
I see about kissing
Is that there are no rules
Well obviously
they have to only be with me
*sigh
Or your mother
We talking peck on the cheek
You know this
I hope you do..
Eww
Now
Where was I..
Yes
No rules
(Read above)
Kiss me often
Well all the time will help
Maybe brush teeth before
Early morning deep sloppy kissing
But wake up kiss allowed
The deep kissing will be greatly rewarded
With arousing from below
See..
So deep kiss often
Just maybe not...

Drinking is my portal to ecstasy, my escapade out of dejection.
Today I am drunk on soberness, my melancholia dilutes my thoughts clarity.
Bound within this vile state.
I drink, and I drink, and I drink.
But I can not escape. Stuck in this night, where evil sober images impose my aching mind.
I drink again, I drink with abhorrence.
I detest This mother fucking soberness. †
Stuck with this feeling of disdain.
I have fallen deep within this abdominal pit of gloom.
Warmth burns my timid nerves.
I feel it pillaging my innards. They plea...

This is the last chance the last embrace. It forever or never! Boy you got a move you better make it because I donít believe in miracles I told you I need you but you ran away like a duck with it head cut off. You better make it now or never because I ant living forever. So boy make it forever because I canít wait no more this is for my love it time to start this now because it will be never the way youíre running. †

My lover, the shark,
I feed you all the scraps
from my succulent ribs
and throw our bones into piles
for each time I gift you my skin
you place my teeth in grinders,
furnish your food with my mouth--
taste where you should have been.
My knees bend
like Sunday mornings
I pick the scabs off clean
lay them on your palms,
make trinkets from flesh
in a whorish daze.
My dear,
don't you smell my blood
and remember the incense
we laid out at the...

Oh yeah I can see it clearly now
but I couldn't see nothing then
back when I was in Love with you
no there wasn't a thing about you
I needed in my life...I was in Love
that was all I could see at the time
Love does strange things to
a person's mind...sometimes it works
on you something like alcohol

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

Published on 30th June 2015 9:26pm
Written by Poetic Justice LaTerika_Shardae
Can I conquer this? Is it really for everyone?
Can I literally get on this ship?
Some say this can be a dangerous ride with out your seat belt
Some say it can cause damage
But I won't go in detail
See they say it's not for sale it is not retail
So I buy another drink because love can stink can you sense that strong smell
Some say it doesn't exist until the first kiss
Some say it feels like a dagger cut after that first nut
But who are they to judge you I wish I knew what you've been through tbh I heard so many stories about you
And I'm starting to feel...

Right now
All so different
I can't help to think back
Through all this chaos
How beautiful you were to me
How simple life was
When I felt your embrace
How I smiled from ear to ear
When I saw that smile on your face
The touch of your hand
When the world fell apart
The kisses, the love
The whispers in the dark
Acceptance I have made
And I no longer crave
But sometimes I find myself
Wanting to misbehave
To feel the silk of your skin once more
To caress your breasts
Letting my fingers explore

Tears fall on a broken frame
Shattered glass
Picture tarnished and torn

Where you use to stand
Its faded
Your hand departed from mine
Long ago

The lies you told
Slowly peeled away to reveal
What remained still haunting my dreams
You were no longer you
No the man i longed for
Or with whom i fell in love

Lies peeled away to reveal what always was
Blinded by your costune by your charade
Im disheartened to say
I dont love the man that remains

Iíve written poems for women who have almost loved me,
until it suddenly occurred to them,
you canít make love to man whoís a thousand miles away.
I so admire your charming verses, Ladies, your gamboling
lyrics designed to sing away your encrypted passions.
but if you want to be hurt, come & stay with me,
Iím very good at it.
just ask the melancholy Beauty who told me Ďyouíve broken
my heart for the last time, Iím done with you!í but two hours
later sheís back on my doorstep saying ĎForgive me, Darling.í ...

My Horns Have Always Been This Visible
Your Failure To Notice Is Your Damn Fault

My Dark Ways Are All But Dismissable
And You Came Thirsty To The Dryest Drought

So Stop With Your Ridiculous Crying
No Amount Of Tears Can Restore Waste Land

And Keep In Mind That I Lie Here Dying
As You Build Royal Mansions In My Sand

Written by Masango_SJay Masango
I had another dream about her again last night, then the sun came up and reality set in, she graced my dreams among those endless smiles and blue skies above slumbered majestic evergreens, the drifting fragrance of her sweet scent climbed up through my conscious mind bringing me to a haze. I miss her but I wonít let her loss cripple me; thanks to her love a certain solid fragrance raised from the earth, lives darkly in my body. The abiding moon determines what I do not have, a soul; a soul that would long for her triumphant return. My sight searches for her as though to go to her, the trees...

the narrative starts:
whispering among the trees
kissing closed eyelids.
it speaks of your able touch,
and the firm in your jawline.

Suddenly thinking of her
And her exotic style
Contemplating how I misunderstood her.
I know her better now
Without seeing her anymore
It became clear years later.
Her sex was electric
Her mind controlled
Her actions unpredictable.
I was jealous of her ways
She feared telling me the truth
We wanted to care for each other, but didn't know how
When she came to see me, I had prepared for her
A simple delicacy
Of strawberries and mascarpone
The short while I spent...
