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.

(Entered in the 'Inspired by....' competition)

There was a time when we loved so deeply
Who was it that stole you, stole it away?
When was it, you then, decided to stay?
‘Twas an empty heart you gave me
When mine was full to bursting
‘Twas your arms, so cold and uninviting
When mine warmed the fibers of your being
‘Twas your vacant eyes that looked through me
When mine gazed deep in to your soul
‘Twas the lack of a smile upon your face
When I couldn’t stop beaming
‘Twas the cold wind blowing between...

- Whispers on the Wind -
Whispers on the wind tell me oft of things,
I should not heed, but hear the calling of.
The warmth of day, what light it so brings,
That whispers unto me of forbidden love!
What enchantment hath ensnared me well?
The flowers carry it, and the trees know…
Secrets even unknown to deep-most Hell,
Carried, wherever the wind must to blow.
On the bones of winter spring is in bloom,
And I feel ensorcelled by all of its’ colors.
The world seems risen from a gray tomb…
With myriad a delight, that ever shimmers.
Yet it...

I blew out the candle of your flame
bowed my head in silence
as I let the darkness chase away your breath
Because darling I can still taste your kisses on my tongue
they linger on my skin
like little tattoos your love
is still etched just under the flesh
I won't let this pain eat me alive
I am not a dish left to rot in the garbage
so exquisite the taste you left to waste
someone else would kill just to have me
and others would kill me so none could tear me away
Last night I threw a coin into the wishing well of fire
Now I'm...

Hold my hand
As I clutch yours
Melting into one
In my thoughts
Those nights when
Can't breathe...
Like a helpline dial

Yearn for you
Fall severally
But all I wanted
Was you
Was us
Covered by the cloak of love
Well of passion
Tell me when I fall
Will you pick me up?

I felt it the moment when the end began
When I made love to you and you were not there
And I told you and I believed I wouldn't care
Your body was mine your soul wasn't neither your heart
And I knew this would be the last time
My dragon in combat for the last fire breath
Until the inevitable leap to our emotion's death
And I squirmed under your empty gaze
Fighting against this pain; I began to
Silence the flames with wine
Breaking slowly will and spine
Trying to curtail the smoldering with smoke
Waiting to finally faint and choke...

I wish you were near
I wish you were here
I wish you were wishing
away every tear -
world full of music
world full of song
exciting vibrations
a place to belong -
I wish the Sun shone
rising each day
on people in love
in Nature at play -
I wish you were close
so near I could feel
your breath against me
know that you're real -
we have come far
we've taken so long
now near this star
there can be no wrong -
you are in me
I am in you
we are more than
I and I two -
I wish I...

Our time together,
Was a cup of joy.

She was my coffee.
Spicy.
Tangy.
Vibrant.
Smooth.
Complex.
Little sweet.
Hint of honey.
Mocha chocolate.
Intoxicating aroma.
Oomph for breakfast.
Better after dinner treat.

I was her cream.

Mixed together,
Our life was delicious.

Love is about mercy.
Love is about forgiveness.
Love is about trust
and feeling safe
in somebody's arms
and in their heart.
Love is about growing,
about wanting to be better
because you want to be better
for them
and for you
and for the love
growing inside
and around you,
around the "us"
growing between
two people.
Love is about finding
yourself
and being yourself,
about being
who you want to be
because you are
finally
safe(home).
Love is about
finding your best friend...

In the deepest parts of my thoughts,
i'll find a corner in the dark,
emotionally distraught,
fucked up in some love knot.
In these corners,
I have blind spots.
In segregated trains of thought,
you climb aboard,
as im deep in thought
maybe im on a roof top,
with all this thinking,
maybe a blood clot.
  Of coarse,
  hypothetically speaking.
no one would stop and stare
no one i knew would be there,
and i would jump,
but your here
and you care.
What about a knife?

She used to get jealous of my attentions
And when her cats or nephew showed
That they were fond of me
I know it's not supposed to be
But I found it attractive.
Not the jealousy exactly
But rather the intensity of her emotion
She was alway intense
Alluring and vivacious
And that burning look
Heightened her beauty
But I knew.
So now we're not together
But she sure was electric

Don't look at me like that
Trying to resist temptation,
Leave no room for contemplating ,
To give into lustful desires,
Because u look at me like that...damn.
Smile too beautiful, im trying to be just amicable ....with you, but u look at me like that.
U and those dreamy eyes, I try to hide, from the contact,
Bat mine, gaze up,  You look at me that.
No im no complaining, just wondering why when im aiming... to fall back,
You look at me like that.
Stomach starts to butterfly,
Trying to find the reason why
I fall victim every...

Road blocks rise up in your mind      
I'm bricked from brink, nary a crime.      
Feel you out there, but not with me      
that face turned wane, I cannot see..      
       
I give smokey greens- in question here,      
stroke edges- rough, pilfer tear-fears..      
Silence only harms we two-      
(a knife in echoes, sharp-slice construed)      
Made of me, and made of you.      
       
This double blade- cries! starving now-      ...

I'm waiting to cry, again. I try to but everytime I begin, someone darts into my room expecting to see a smile on my face - so I give it to them, because I did say I'd be okay.
I guess only you could tell when I'm lying.

This announcement
made clear
in proclamation
this love disclosure

Our spoken declaration
shattering skepticism
as we;
fluid in thoughts
earthen souls dancing
combining
you and I

My lover sighs
Like the wind off the water
That day at the lake
Where a kiss and a kiss and a dream combined
And hearts entwined like the fingers of our hands
Or her lips' hungry demands
And my heroic lips and curious hands impart
Meaning to our midnight embrace
So ephemeral and sweet
Yet I know that my heart like the sighing
Wind will grow restless and carry on

I love you, hang in there,
 
this won't be forever... my breath of fresh air.
 
A beautiful future sings, a clean slate and a new start,
 
a future where we will fix all the things that have seemed to fall apart.

I can not speak to you
As you are for I am
In mourning for who
You used to be
I am keeping vigil
I am an empty pocket
I think if I can be
Quiet enough I will
Hear that voice again
Sliding through
The cracks in the floor
Wrapping me safe
And standing guard
You are not gone
From me yet
You are just away
Over yonder
You would not leave
Without saying goodbye
So I will sit here
Until you show
Until you fill my pockets
With your hands
And when you make
Your promise to me
That I am...

5 broken hearts is what I was given.
True love is what I gave.
I walked through the dark sands that were stained red.
I painted the sky that was coated in black.
I walked in the fire with my soul on the wire.
I made bright water that shattered my cold soul.
For the true fool in this story was the girl that followed the devil.
With a broken sole, for I am nothing but the lost wanderer.
Traveling in hail and fire.
These icy caverns are made of lava.
And now you have finally broken my heart.
After you said " I hate you"

You know when two people love each ohter
A flame ignites in both of their hearts
If the love is real of course
Because you see
you cant make fire feel afraid
thats how i feel about you
i would carry my crose
just to prove my love to you
i can be killed only to rise again
to prove that i cant go a day with out you
and HE led me to you
and i thank HIM everyday
and i would fight with eternety
only to have you next to me
in our next life time
because darling you were made for me

Night after night as time flies us by,
I stay awake in deep thoughts,
of the past between you and I.
As love is still beating inside me,
I remember- truly- of the truth.
Jose, we lived miles away, so far.
Out of reach and far apart that I,
feel like I am going insane inside.
Days that turn to cold dark nights,
I could never see the light in us.
Yes, I believed that I loved you,
before the insanity took control,
but I'll quickly remember the rest.
I don't love you; maybe I never...
