Love Poems

Since Valentines Day is only a couple of days away I thought it would be fun to post some love poems. Here is one of mine:

 

Love You

 

I love you like the ocean loves the sand.

I crave you every second,

Every second you are not at hand.

I would die without you beside me

and perish at your fall.

I would blend into nothingness

without you here at all.

Your breath is my air.

Your smile is my happiness.

Leave you I would not dare

because without you there is only emptiness.

Your eyes are my compass.

Your kiss my survival.

You are gorgeous, perfectly flawless.

For you there could be no rival.

I give you all that is mine.

My life is yours too.

I will love you to the depths of time.

You are my love, you are my life... I love you.

Re: Love Poems

[ Edited ]

A Letter

 

Obviously

There's no easy way to start

I blame this

Endless wreck

I call my

Train of thought

If I

Wasn't me

This would be easier to say

But I

am who I am

So there's no other way

But

that's

Enough of me

Let me

use my words to explain what I see:

 

Those

Sinful lips

hold the sweetest kiss

That paints a picture

Has me falling

Leaves me

Breathless...

A tender touch

that softly sings

to my electrified mind

Gives me dreams

Better seen

As the right and wrong kind

 

I keep on

Falling

In and out

Of my desire

For that

Wreckless love

That seems to fuel my mental fire

 

Because

Burned

Into my brain

Is your name

Driving me insane

In and outof each and every day.

 

The more words I could say

Would simply be too much

But I'm in too deep

And oh so tempted to touch.

Re: Love Poems

I wrote this poem for someone special and i was wondering if it is good enough to give it to him. Let me know what you think of it. I don't know what the title is yet.

 

For the things I lack I hope you forgive

Cause love is all I have to give

I can’t bring you to nice places

But I can fill your life with embraces

I can’t drive you around in my car

But I can show you the world under the stars

Let me take you away with a kiss

Let me give you memories to reminisce  

I will show you the important things

That my love can only bring.

Re: Love Poems

I have another one but it doesnt have a title

 

You plague my

Thoughts, my feelings,

my word and my brain

Just the

Daily sight of you

drives me insane

If only

You could know

the way that I feel

Cause I

never felt something

Quite so real.

 

Words are not

Enough to say

How I

can't stop thinking of you

Every day

Boy you

put me up

In heaven's sky

You always seem to give me

That natural high.

 

There are not enough words

in the world to say

how much I love you

in all your ways.

Music is the cure.

Re: Love Poems

This poem is really good. I like it alot. I like the line "Boy you put me up in heaven's sky" I like the imagery in that line. I have a question. Do u write it for anyone special? Because it is really good.

Re: Love Poems

Heres another poem that i wrote. I kind of have alot of them...lol. :smileyhappy:  What do you think?

 

 

Lets take on the world together

 

My lullaby is your heartbeat

It calms my soul into sleep

And I am yours to keep 

Our hearts are indestructible

So our love will never die

You can see it in my eyes. 

You make me feel complete

Whenever we are together.

Our hearts are locked forever. 

Let’s not think about tomorrow

Cause my love will remain the same.

By the way I feel when I say your name. 

You bring the best out of me.

And I will hold onto you tight

Because you are my guiding light.

 I love the way you love me.

You leave me breathless

When you shower me with caresses. 

My heart races every time we kiss.

Talking and being with you is bliss

Loving you forever is my wish.

Re: Love Poems

Here is one of my love poems from my poetry book, Love Undefined

 

 

What You Deserve 

 

You deserve to smile.

You deserve to laugh at something

once said, or done, to get your attention,

or that tickled your funny bone.

You deserve that random phone call –

the one that is ignorant to distance or time.

You deserve to be touched,

not in a way that is un-welcomed,

but in an overt way, expressing serenity,

allowing eyebrows to question a reason.

Should there be one?

I didn’t think so either.

Obvious it is already.

You deserve to reside in daydreams,

remaining in mystery until time rescues

you into existence.

You deserve to be the result of delicate

persistence.

You deserve to serve as the outlook of

promise – that forecast of sunlight after

weathering the storms.

You deserve to be that treasure piece that,

despite the flaws, is mint condition with

every glance.

You deserve to be yourself.

Just take a minute – to question who am I

to say what you deserve.

Take another to decide if these words are true.

If not, then forgive me.

If so, then allow me to reap the reward of

loving you sincerely.

Allow me to view you as God’s precious

creation, that was made-to-order just for me.

The shipping and handling was already paid.

Allow me to learn the melody of your soul,

orchestrated precisely to provide adequate

descriptions of a love sublime, in hopes that we –

yes, we - never cease to amaze each other.

Familiar shall we become with one another,

no longer wearing the title of strangers.

Who am I to say what you deserve?

Who am I to say… you deserve me?

Re: Love Poems

I know this is an old tread, but i had a love poem that is about me and a guy i like.....it's like an un-love poem.

 

What is this feeling?

This strangeness is seeming to grow

With every firefly, in my mind

that just cant' escape

or barely makes it out alive

 

Different? What is different in the end?

we'll all just be burning for the same sins!

So i'll ask you (and try to ask as a friend)

Why can everybody but me

let somebody in?

 

crap, i gotta go, I'll write more later if theres some feedback!! :smileywink:

step through my looking glass at calamityplease.blogspot.com and it'd be ever so thoughtful and kind of you to follow me. :smileywink: Also I have a new contests of sorts on said blog concerning THE VAMPIRE ACADEMY by Richelle Mead. So check it out.

Re: Love Poems

Staring at this lonely room,

feeling so empty inside,

letting the memories pass me by,

as I stand, thinking of you.

 

Hours spent on the floor,

the days passing by slowly,

laughter shared and tears cried,

the two of us, together forever.

 

This was before you died,

that horrible, tragic day,

never can forget the site

of the car hitting your body.

 

And now as I stand here,

tears streaming down my face,

I regret with all my heart

never telling you what I wanted to-

I love you.

 

Not actual personal experience, just a piece I made up.

Re: Love Poems

thanks soo much! Yours is awesome too!!

 the rest:

 

What is this haunting?

your voice seems to follow me home.

with every smile you seem

to light up the sky

it's as if i'll never

see the night

again

 

WHo is this angel?

this face who fills my head?

Give me all that i need

Your silvery laugh

can you spped up time

but still make it last?

 

How could i believe

i ever had a chance

with pure perfection

personified in a man

 

Different. nothing's differnt in the end.

I'll bet my life that the angel will win.
