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 two most beautiful souls
DUP has to offer...I am
undeserving to have known
such souls existed...we spun
around in all the excitement
Three of us were triple the fun.
As I came between two souls I
thought magic happened. Really!
It was my weakness falling harder
to my knees unable to get up from
my own morbid fascination. Hopeless,
cant help but love both...and it wont
go away......my poison severed all and
allow me to hurt on my own...I beg...
All I can say is sorry in public
humiliation...

A silhouette reflects an image so sublime
The lines connected can brace a trend
Enliven spirits take lives to higher plane
The hands of fate they never end
"For many hours and days that pass ever soon,
The tides have caused the flame to dim.
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom;
Is this to end or it just begin?"
Can I stay straight when life's road twists and turns?
Due north not a option played
Any wisdom possessed can it be utilized
When not a compass has been saved?
"Should I fall out of love, my fire in the...

You may have forgot what I said

You may  forget what I did

I just hope you never forget how I made you feel

Your spark for me maybe gone

But my fire still burns

There is a page written
in the fires of an ice blue star
too distant to read without pain
unless you climb the links
between two twinkled gazes
with fraying threads
too feeble to hold
the heavy thoughts of hollow men
so a convoy of feather musings
flits into the sky
to brush the edges of blue fires
and lay down their lives in bitterness
to confirm a truth already known
the fiery words on the page
are nothing new
just piecemeal professions
in the hollows of letters
of hushed confessions of unborn...

To be seen
From your soul
Complete and whole...
And.... he still smiles
I want...
To be seen
As beautiful from
The core of my being
When he looks at me.. .
I Long to be seen...
In my naked skin...
Being adored as he
Worships .. . At my temple
Drinking the Life of me in..  .
His eyes...
I ache.. .
To be seen
By his lips ...
Discovered...
In shades of Nirvana
Embraced by his adoration
Breathless...
I Long to be....
I Long
To be seen
Where is he ...
A passion filled...

Lover please speak softly
for I come to you tonight
weary of the world,
and too tired to fight.
For the world has laid her mantle
about my shoulders like a cloak
and, dared me to stand proudly
beneath her queenly robes...
and I feel as though I'm hovering
at the edge of some great cliff
perhaps the mouth of hades
and shadows there are dancing promising me
peace If only I would jump into the darkness deep
Lover please speak softly
for tonight I'm but a broken thing
and shadows in my heart are dancing ...

1.  
I  take comfort
that during the universe’s
Creation
We were one.
We were so close.
and  I’m sure  
but not certain
that those parts
of yours which
were once part of me
look to the stars
with the sigh
of remembrance.

( To  R.C.)
I saw you
And a residue
of recollection
Triggered.
You smiled each time I passed
Until we finally said “ Hi ” .
Embarrassed for you
I crossed the room
Like a comet entering your orbit
Sheltered by it
By the closing of space .
Close to your...

I need not
Hold the blade
I must only
Misbehave
You'll take it from
My trembling hands
Cuz you're the one
Who understands
You know I like it
On pain I thrive
Keeps me excited
My soul alive
Under your spell
Of mass condition
I'm compelled
Assume position
Cut wide open
Expose my flesh
Drain me till
There's nothing left
Perception of love
Forever altered
Myself is the one
That I have faltered
     Kill me slow
Give me life
Can't let go
Don't know why
You slice me up

Oh, Eve!
You know not how you’ve offended me
So happily married
Living by the sea
With two children
Ages one and three
 
Eve, must you be
So ostentatious flamboyantly
Go-lucky carefree?
Caring-on without
Any sense of humility
Nor decorum or dignity
 
Eve, don’t misconceive
You will not provoke my jealousy
For its not you I wish to be
It’s your husband Steve
That I envy
Because you married him
Instead of me

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

Published on 24th July 2014 8:08pm
Written by bambirose_x
in the forest he met his misfortune  
in the shape of a boy so fair  
he had shy blue eyes and a lying tongue  
and flowers in his long dark hair  

he traced his scars  
and kissed his head  
and promised he'd never leave  

but when he woke  
the boy was gone  
oh how could he be so naive  

in a daze of frustration he scratched at his skin  
not pretty not perfect  
alone  

he started to bleed as tears fell from his eyes  
fading, fading

Let’s take it through the years
Drowning in tears of joy
We have a love, that never dies
In our universe, it is written in the skies

Take my hand my love,
Swim in my ocean of joy
Our love beats, riding waves in the skies
In our universe, our love never dies

Inside my dreams a love's creation
Step inside with your eyes
You are what loving means, the sunshine from below
We are happiness, in our skies of love

what was the weather like when you were born?
your smile displays sunshine, but your eyes
betray clouds, and i know
that day could have foretold the way
the sun shines through the frozen clouds
every time you smile at me
and i guess i'm just hoping
that the sun broke through the sky in the same way
when you arrived in this world
because that would mean we're more
than just temporary weather

Dreaming of you gives me a reason to smile
dreaming of you gives me a reason to laugh
dreaming of you gives me a reason to live
dreaming of you gives me a reason to dream


never in my life i stop dreaming of you
hold me and take me again in your heart
i am here with open empty heart
come in as my princess and fill my heart
oh my dreaming girl

Written by Angel Feliciano Edwardevere
All the anger and rage  converge into one.
In a single mind,to absorb all that the dark wants.
Becoming my burden no longer her haunts.
Inscribe your secrets upon my skin.
Bury them within my sins,return to innocence
In my veins her venom..
No more poisoned and villainess thoughts.
Unwind and bind them to the pulse in my heart.
So she can be free,wings spread apart,into the winds of still calmness
Unshackled,unscathed,her soul-unbound uncaged unharmed

In a dream I walked along a waters edge drifting as mist on the moor. Looking at the placid gift for what reflections had in store. None there I saw, save a lone heart felt throbbing like the stars. As night bled out its lucid black to cover me and bar...
My way back now lost, a midst the broken branches by the shore, where memories linger ever on, never traveling very far. Wandering in hope for home and love to come along and greet me with the dawn.

I can feel her
I can feel her soul
Her ghostly presence
Her gentle voice
Just ringing in my ears
She loves me, she says,
And her shuttering fades
Making quiet-deafening
Don't go, don't go
My soul longs ever more
For you-my love.

Oh, my love's eyes
Are my dreams during the day,
Oh, my love's hair
Flows down from heaven,
Oh, my love's cheek
Is only mine and mine to caress,
Oh, my love's lips
Lovely as a core of a rose,
And her soul loves mine
Oh, my love, my love!
Forever shall you never feel
The wear of Time's hand.
Oh, my love.

i whisper your name like a pacifying mantra, your crystal spine becomes the mala sliding between my fingers
anamaya kosha: [lips to sixth chakra] ~
you reveal the layers of your psyché,
allowing my consciousness to probe
beyond the heterogeneous plexus to discover
an unexpected place of tenderness
concealed by your hardened exterior
//
we are nine strings of realisation: complete in ourselves but of less significance...

I don't know quite much of him yet.
His eyes tell me we've met in another world
The way they sparkle; reminding  me of the stars he lit up for me every night
A smile to melt gold, too glim to melt anyones heart however, his supercilious being reminding me of the absence of my own. I love him, but with what capacity? Perhaps he holds a love powerful enough to be shared through both of us, to shine brighter than a thousand suns that grew darker with every blinking moment spent away from him.
I love him, and his magnanimity, it made me smile. His lack of beliefs made me...
