30 Of The Most Beautiful Poems Ever Written About Love

1. Queen Anne’s Lace

Her body is not so white as
anemone petals nor so smooth—nor
so remote a thing. It is a field
of the wild carrot taking
thefield by force; the grass
does not raise above it.
Here is no question of whiteness,
white as can be, with a purple mole
at the center of each flower.
Each flower is a hand’s span
of her whiteness. Wherever
his hand has lain there is
a tiny purple blossom under his touch
to which the fibres of her being
stem one by one, each to its end,
until the whole field is a
white desire, empty, a single stem,
a cluster, flower by flower,
a pious wish to whiteness gone over—
or nothing.
– William Carlos Williams

2. My Confession

My love for you is uncontrollable.
My feelings for you are unstoppable.
Can’t go a day without thinking about you.
Without you, I’m not complete.
With you, my heart finds its beat.

My heart is filled with joy because of your love.
You are my strength, and without you I’m weak.
Before you came into my life, I was
Hopeless, lonely, sad.
When you showed up, I knew that you were sent to me.

You are always here to cheer me up.
Your smile makes me shy,
And sometimes I wonder where you have been all this while,
But I’m just glad that I managed to get you in my life…
YOU FILL MY HEART WITH JOY!
– Mmakoma Kamogelo

3. A Love Song For Lucinda

Love
Is a ripe plum
Growing on a purple tree.
Taste it once
And the spell of its enchantment
Will never let you be.

Love
Is a bright star
Glowing in far Southern skies.
Look too hard
And its burning flame
Will always hurt your eyes.

Love
Is a high mountain
Stark in a windy sky.
If you
Would never lose your breath
Do not climb too high.
– Langston Hughes

4. What I Love About You

The sparkle in your eye,
The warmth of your skin,
Your breath on my neck
That shakes me within.

The touch of your hand,
The smell of your hair,
The naughtiness in your smile,
That strength in your stare.

Your kiss on my lips,
Your body near mine,
The stroke of your touch,
Makes everything feel fine.

The compassion in your touch,
The power in your face,
The beating of your heart,
That we may never end our embrace.

The beauty of your kiss,
And that magic in your touch.
It is for all these reasons and more
Why I love you so much…
– Nidhi Kaul

5. Rondel Of Merciless Beauty

Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene;
Straight through my heart the wound is quick and keen.Only your word will heal the injury
To my hurt heart, while yet the wound is clean—
Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene.Upon my word, I tell you faithfully
Through life and after death you are my queen;
For with my death the whole truth shall be seen.
Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene;
Straight through my heart the wound is quick and keen.
– Geoffrey Chaucer

6. You’re My Everything

It makes me happy just being by your side.
All these feelings I just can’t hide.
You’ll always be in my heart.
Can’t bear the pain when we are apart.
Nobody is as special as you are to me.
I hope you are beginning to see
Just how much I care for you,
And all my feelings will always be true.
I can’t describe how much I care,
But when you need me, I’ll be there
To wipe those tears when you are sad,
To make you happy when you are mad.
All these things I can really do.
Just remember I’m thinking of you!
– Jetem Westbrook

7. You Mean The World To Me

You mean the world to me.
Nothing will ever come between us.
No matter what anybody says or does,
You will always be in my heart,
Forever and ever.
Your spot will never be replaced.
You hold the key to my heart,
And you have since we met.
I will love you forever,
And no matter how much we fight,
Things will be okay.
Like I said, I will love you forever,
No matter what.
– Karly30 Of The Most Beautiful Poems Ever Written About Love

8. Witch Wife

She is neither pink nor pale,
And she never will be all mine;
She learned her hands in a fairy-tale,
And her mouth on a valentine.

She has more hair than she needs;
In the sun ’tis a woe to me!
And her voice is a string of coloured beads,
Or steps leading into the sea.

She loves me all that she can,
And her ways to my ways resign;
But she was not made for any man,
And she never will be all mine.
– Edna St. Vincent Millay

9. Blinded By Love

You keep running from the truth; you know it’s true.
You think I am crazy for loving you.

I wish you could see the angel I see
when you stand in front of me.

You think I am your best gift of all,
but I wish you could understand – without you, I stand 10 inches tall.

I never believed in the saying “opposites attract,”
but the second I met you, it became a proven fact.

I am cold as ice, while you’re hot as fire.
As long as I live, you’re my one and only desire.

You’re not just my want but also my need.
You’re like my personal drug; for you I plead.

I am the happiest person whenever you’re near,
but the second you leave, I shed a lonely tear.
– Shanna

10. My Promise To You

I promise to always lift you up
When you are feeling down.
I promise to wipe your tears
When you feel you need to cry.
I promise to keep you smiling
To show off that beautiful smile you have.
I promise to be your strength
Whenever you fall weak.
I promise to be your voice
When you can’t find the words.
I promise to be your eyes
When you cannot see.
I promise to be your ears
When you cannot hear.
I promise to always tell you what’s real
When you want to hear the truth.
I promise to be your dream catcher
To chase away your every fear.
I promise to be your smile
When you’re frowning.
I promise to always cheer you up
When you are down and blue.
I promise to give you faith
When you are feeling insecure.
I promise to keep you sturdy
When you are feeling unsafe.
I promise to listen
When you need to talk.
I promise to tell you no lies,
Just what is true.
I promise to always lend you my shoulder
For when you need to cry.
I promise to always hold you
When you need someone.
I promise to always care for you.
Wherever you are, I promise to always be there.
I promise to never hurt you and never break your heart.
I can’t promise you the world.
I can’t promise you the sky.
I can’t promise you that we will never fight.
I can’t promise you that I will never cry,
But I can promise you that I will always be true to you,
And baby, I promise that I will always love you more than anything
With all my heart.
No matter what happens or what we go through.
I’ll love you until the end of time!
I’ll be your guardian angel.
That’s my promise to you!
– Emily Thurston

11. To You

I love you as a sheriff searches for a walnut
That will solve a murder case unsolved for years
Because the murderer left it in the snow beside a window
Through which he saw her head, connecting with
Her shoulders by a neck, and laid a red
Roof in her heart. For this we live a thousand years;
For this we love, and we live because we love, we are not
Inside a bottle, thank goodness! I love you as a
Kid searches for a goat; I am crazier than shirttails
In the wind, when you’re near, a wind that blows from
The big blue sea, so shiny so deep and so unlike us;
I think I am bicycling across an Africa of green and white fields
Always, to be near you, even in my heart
When I’m awake, which swims, and also I believe that you
Are trustworthy as the sidewalk which leads me to
The place where I again think of you, a new
Harmony of thoughts! I love you as the sunlight leads the prow
Of a ship which sails
From Hartford to Miami, and I love you
Best at dawn, when even before I am awake the sun
Receives me in the questions which you always pose.
– Kenneth Koch

12. Echo

I think I was searching for treasures or stones
in the clearest of pools
when your face…

when your face,
like the moon in a well
where I might wish…

might well wish
for the iced fire of your kiss;
only on water my lips, where your face…

where your face was reflected, lovely,
not really there when I turned
to look behind at the emptying air…the emptying air.
– Carol Ann Duffy

 

13. I Know You

When I first met you,
I felt like I had known you forever,
telling you my secrets
and what I didn’t want ever.
You listened to me.
I bet you thought I’d never end.
Who would have thought
we would become more than just friends?
Over a period of time
I got to know the real you.
A boy, so caring and gentle,
with a heart so true.
You’ve survived your life
with hurt and loneliness by your side.
I told you I’d never leave
because of the feelings I have inside.
I know you
like no one I have ever known,
and sometimes I wonder
what I’d do if you were gone?
So I have decided
time answers all.
If it is meant to be,
time will remove the wall.
I love the way we are together.
You can always make me smile.
Will it ever really be forever?
I guess I will have to wait a while.
Time will reveal what lies ahead,
but always remember
what I have said.
Meeting you has changed my life,
and I really love you so.
The feelings I feel for you,
I am never letting go.
Remember me always
and I will, too.
I always think of
me and you.
– Katie

14. Sonnet 29

When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
(Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

William Shakespeare

15. Polarities

Sometimes she is like sherry, like the sun through a vessel of glass,
Like light through an oriel window in a room of yellow wood;
Sometimes she is the colour of lions, of sand in the fire of noon,
Sometimes as bruised with shadows as the afternoon.

Sometimes she moves like rivers, sometimes like trees;
Or tranced and fixed like South Pole silences;
Sometimes she is beauty, sometimes fury, sometimes neither,
Sometimes nothing, drained of meaning, null as water.

Sometimes, when she makes me pea-soup or plays me Schumann,
I love her one way; sometimes I love her another
More disturbing way when she opens her mouth in the dark;
Sometimes I like her with camellias, sometimes with a parsley-stalk,
Sometimes I like her swimming in a mirror on the wall;
Sometimes I don’t like her at all.
– Kenneth Siessor

16. Sonnet 40

Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all:
What hast thou then more than thou hadst before?
No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call—
All mine was thine before thou hadst this more.
Then if for my love thou my love receivest,
I cannot blame thee for my love thou usest;
But yet be blamed if thou this self deceivest
By wilful taste of what thyself refusest.
I do forgive thy robb’ry, gentle thief,
Although thou steal thee all my poverty;
And yet love knows it is a greater grief
To bear love’s wrong than hate’s known injury.
Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows,
Kill me with spites, yet we must not be foes.
William Shakespeare

17. Sonnet XlIII

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
– Elizabeth Barrett Browning

30 Of The Most Beautiful Poems Ever Written About Love

18. Since The Day We Met

I remember the day we met
Both shy, but wanted to talk
Even when we tried
We didn’t know what to say

Day by day
We took it slow
And our conversations began to grow

Since the day our conversations grew
I became very fond of you
Hoping you felt fond of me too

One night we had a talk
And now look where we’re at
In the happiest place we can be
That is, in the relationship between you and me
– Jenna

19. Falling Stars

Do you remember still the falling stars
that like swift horses through the heavens raced
and suddenly leaped across the hurdles
of our wishes—do you recall? And we
did make so many! For there were countless numbers
of stars: each time we looked above we were
astounded by the swiftness of their daring play,
while in our hearts we felt safe and secure
watching these brilliant bodies disintegrate,
knowing somehow we had survived their fall.
– Rainer Maria

20. Love Poem

Speak earth and bless me with what is richest
make sky flow honey out of my hips
rigis mountains
spread over a valley
carved out by the mouth of rain.

And I knew when I entered her I was
high wind in her forests hollow
fingers whispering sound
honey flowed
from the split cup
impaled on a lance of tongues
on the tips of her breasts on her navel
and my breath
howling into her entrances
through lungs of pain.

Greedy as herring-gulls
or a child
I swing out over the earth
over and over
again.
– Audre Lorde

21. Any Lit

You are a ukulele beyond my microphone
You are a Yukon beyond my Micronesia
You are a union beyond my meiosis
You are a unicycle beyond my migration
You are a universe beyond my mitochondria
You are a Eucharist beyond my Miles Davis
You are a euphony beyond my myocardiogram
You are a unicorn beyond my Minotaur
You are a eureka beyond my maitai
You are a Yuletide beyond my minesweeper
You are a euphemism beyond my myna bird.
– Harryette Mullen

22. The Sun Rising

Busy old fool, unruly sun,
Why dost thou thus,
Through windows, and through curtains call on us?
Must to thy motions lovers’ seasons run?
Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide
Late school boys and sour prentices,
Go tell court huntsmen that the king will ride,
Call country ants to harvest offices,
Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime,
Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.

Thy beams, so reverend and strong
Why shouldst thou think?
I could eclipse and cloud them with a wink,
But that I would not lose her sight so long;
If her eyes have not blinded thine,
Look, and tomorrow late, tell me,
Whether both th’ Indias of spice and mine
Be where thou leftst them, or lie here with me.
Ask for those kings whom thou saw’st yesterday,
And thou shalt hear, All here in one bed lay.

She’s all states, and all princes, I,
Nothing else is.
Princes do but play us; compared to this,
All honor’s mimic, all wealth alchemy.
Thou, sun, art half as happy as we,
In that the world’s contracted thus.
Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be
To warm the world, that’s done in warming us.
Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere;
This bed thy center is, these walls, thy sphere.

– John Donne

30 Of The Most Beautiful Poems Ever Written About Love

23. Eternally Crowned

I wake to the touch of a morning sun,
Softly teasing my eyes apart.
I feel your arms tighten around
Sealing yet another
Non existent space…
I turn around to face you
Feeling blessed for the millionth time.
I stare at your sleeping self
Murmuring a silent prayer of thanks…
At a dark dark time you were sent to me
To shed some light on my weakening being.
I held on tight to you secure hands
As you pulled me out of a painful mess…
I found the smile I thought I had lost
I found love so serene and pure
I found your eyes so full of care
As it healed so well my bruised soul..
I kiss your brow slow and soft
Anxious not to wake you up…
Tears form spelling my love
I see your eyes open up
Just as a drop runs down my cheek
I feel your hands brushing it off…
That I know is the art of love
I was gifted with
And eternally crowned…
– Zahara

24. Always Belong To You

At times I may get mad at you.
Without any reason,
at times I might yell,
but hey, just know that I just want your attention.
I know at times I’m hard to deal with,
but please just try.
I know that I can be hard headed,
but one kiss from you makes me soft.
I can’t be perfect, and I will never be,
but I promise you one thing –
no matter where life take us,
I will never leave or give up on you.
I will always stay by your side and
assure you that everything will be okay.
I will walk with you hand and hand
then smile and wipe your sorrow away.
I will never ever in a million years
ask for someone else
because no matter how hard they all try to compete with you,
they will never win…
because my heart will always belong to you.
– Jrec

25. Love Me

One thing I ask of you…

Love me for who I am
and be true.

Love me as a fish loves the sea,
how the bird loves to sing.

Love me as a bee loves its honey,
as an angel love his wings.

Love me and hold me tight
as you tell me everything is all right.

Love me and guard me with all your might
as you hold me near at night.

Love me as I lay a kiss upon your lips,
as the heart in my chest flips.
– Samantha A. Kemmerer

26. Thinking Of You

I thought of you today, but that’s nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and the day before that too.
For every day, good or bad, you’ll always be in my head.
I hope you’ve understood everything I’ve said.
This isn’t just a joke or a silly lie.
I’d never do anything to make you wanna cry.
I’m sorry if I do something to make you really mad.
It only comes back and makes me really sad.
I really do love you and everything you are.
I hope this relationship gets really far.
I’ll never get you out; I simply don’t know how.
In fact, I’m thinking of you right about now.
You’re everything I need and everything to me.
You know exactly who you are and what you want to be.
You always make me smile just by being there.
I hope you know how much I really do care.
Every time I think of you, my stomach seems to twist.
This is why I love you; I’ve made a huge list.
The list goes on forever, and never will it end,
neither will our relationship; you’ll always be my friend.
Not just a simple friend but a special friend; at that,
I want to spend my whole life with you.
– Katie

27. Forever And Always

You are the sun that shines brightly throughout my day.
You are the gravity that holds me down in every way.
You are the moon that shimmers throughout my night.
You are stars that glimmer oh so bright.

You are the oxygen that keeps me alive.
You are my heart that beats inside.
You are the blood that flows through me.
You are the only guy I can see.
You have the voice of when a mockingbird sings.
You are my everything.

You are my one and only.
You stop me from being so lonely.
We plan our future as if we have a clue.
I never want to lose you.
I want you to be my husband, and I want to be your wife.
I want to be with you for the rest of my life.
– Mercedes

28. Bird-Understander

Of many reasons I love you here is one

the way you write me from the gate at the airport
so I can tell you everything will be alright

so you can tell me there is a bird
trapped in the terminal all the people ignoring it
because they do not know what to do with it
except to leave it alone until it scares itself to death
it makes you terribly terribly sad

You wish you could take the bird outside
and set it free or
(failing that) call a bird-understander
to come help the bird

All you can do is notice the bird
and feel for the bird and write
to tell me how language feels
impossibly useless but you are wrong

You are a bird-understander
better than I could ever be
who make so many noises
and call them song

These are your own words
your way of noticing
and saying plainly
of not turning away
from hurt you have offered them
to me
I am only giving them back

if only I could show you
how very useless they are not

– Craig Arnold

30. So Happy and So Proud

Thoughts of you surround me.
You’re the beating of my heart.
The love you give defines me.
My life is no longer dark.

You give your hand so sweetly.
I am lost if you’re away.
You have me so completely.
I cherish you night and day.

Without your breath, I cannot live.
I need your lips on mine.
Nothing at all I wouldn’t give.
I’ll take nothing and be fine.

For in your arms I’m always home,
So happy and so proud.
Never a day you’ll feel alone,
And I’ll yell it oh so loud…

I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!
-Scott Sabatini
