Poems about teen love that are perfect for young relationships. Love as we know is the most powerful force in the world. It comes with passion and endurance.
Love has the power to inspire individuals to go to extents beyond their imaginations even to recapture the love that was lost.
It also has the power to inspire poets and writers to put on paper the greatest masterpieces in existence.
Some of the greatest art formed throughout centuries was formed in the name of love,
1. How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
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.
– Poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
2. Love Song for Love Songs
A golden age of love songs and we still
can’t get it right. Does your kiss really taste
like butter cream? To me, the moon’s bright face
was neither like a pizza pie nor full;
the Beguine began, but my eyelid twitched.
“No more I love you’s,” someone else assured
us, pouring out her heart, in love (of course)—
what bothers me the most is that high-pitched,
undone whine of “Why am I so alone?”
Such rueful misery is closer to
the truth, but once you turn the lamp down low,
you must admit that he is still the one,
and baby, baby he makes you so dumb
you sing in the shower at the top of your lungs.
– Poem by Rafael Campo
3. Love Comes Quietly
Love comes quietly,
about me, on me,
in the old ways.
What did I know
able to go
alone all the way.
– Poem by Robert Creeley
4. Someone for Change
Sometimes I’ve felt alone and neglected,
unwanted and useless.
Sometimes I’ve looked for someone,
but I’ve always failed to find that one.
Until the day you came along
and you whispered a sweet song.
Then I wondered and I smiled,
is he the one I’ve been looking for?
From that day, everything has changed.
You made me feel important.
You taught me to smile in the midst of trials,
and you told me the reality of life.
You filled me with so much happiness.
You have loved me even in my worst.
Thank you for changing my life.
Thank you for giving me such love.
– Poem by Abegail A. Cardiente
5. The Boy
A teenage boy was sitting in his room
Thinking about that broken heart
He broke that girl’s heart
That boy goes through girls like some kind of art
That girl was sitting in her room crying
She thought she did something wrong
She wondered what she did
Though she was being really strong
That boy thought his actions through
He started feeling really bad
He didn’t know what to do
He wanted that girl back it’s true
The next day he apologized
He told her her loved her still
She loved him
Though what he said did kill
So this is where I leave you
These words engraved in stone
Maybe that boy learned that day
Words can hurt as much as broken bones
– Poem by Barbara E. Hunter
6. All Because of You
It wasn’t the way you kissed me that made me feel so right
It wasn’t the way you loved me before we’d sleep at night
It was the way I realized why I was always down
It was the way you played me when I’m not around
My heart was always broken all because of you
And everytime I think of it there is nothing I can do
I thought that I could make it right but nothing seem to fit
I think I kind of miss you maybe just a bit
All this time I loved you so
So much love that didn’t grow
And I think it’s time I let you go
– Poem by Bianca Lebron
7. Eternal Love
The morning light has the scent of hope
Flowing into the colorful stream
This is it, our fingertips touch the handle
We’ll open the door to the future together
The echoing sounds of happy bells
And the winged angel’s song is being sung
This eternal love continues
To believe that you are near me
But even when I’m crushed inside
I still love your frequent smiles
The most important words
Come from inside the heart
If we attack the rage and sadness together
Everything will be okay
To walk on this eternal road
Some things are still unclear
Coming on to our future
We remember our eternal love
– Poem by William R. Kienitz
8. I Miss You
Met a few girls today
Forgot their names already
Checked out the hottie at the gym
And still felt guilty
I miss you
I heard a song while driving in my car
The one you sang for me
My eyes watered as I mouthed the words
Cause there was something missing
I miss you
I went out and got high
But I’m still sad
Got drunk off my ass
Still cried myself to sleep
I miss you
I went to sleep last night
With a pillow in my arms
So I wouldn’t feel so lonely
But it’s not the same without you
I miss you
I woke up with a smile
Cause you were there in my arms
Then I was once again happy
Until that dream ended too
I miss you
– Poem by Kyle A. Goff
9. Sometimes Instead of Pink, I Like Red
Sometimes instead of pink, I like Red
Sometimes instead of playing with children,
I want to go on date
Sometimes instead of Fishes, I like Swans
Sometimes instead of T-shirt,
I want to wear Gowns
Sometimes instead of Social problems,
I like to read Love story
Sometimes instead of cute girl,
I want to look beautiful lady
Sometimes instead of chocolate,
I like to receive Flowers
Sometimes instead of meeting him for minutes,
I want to spend Hours
– Poem by Sakshi Singh
10. First Love
The arboretum looks as it did then
With silver maples dancing in the breeze
Wildflowers bloom within the narrow glen
Remember how we kissed beneath the trees?
One special oak displays the heart you carved
With our initials set within its wall
We were so young and yet our souls seemed starved
So passionate are teens when first they fall
Today I came to view the art we left
Surrounded by the blooms, the trees, the birds
And though my heart seeks you, I am bereft
Of promises defined by long lost words
I miss that passion coursing through our veins
Now you have left and loneliness remains
– Poem by Carolyn Devonshire
11. I Miss You
I miss you,
like the sky misses the stars.
like the streets when there are no cars.
like a government that has no laws,
like music, when it is on pause.
I miss you,
like the desert misses the rain
like an addict without cocaine,
like a kiss that misses lips
like actors without their scripts.
– Poem by Sharon De Fazio
12. Living Seasons Through
Pressed against the cold, harsh night
We hold on to love
In the sweet, soft spring
We lay on a tall, steep hill
And hold on to love
Summer’s baking heat
Hiding in the shade of trees
Still holding our love
The leaves are falling
Crunching beneath our footsteps
Forever, our love
We’ll last through seasons
Enjoy our love together
Just you wait, my love.
– Poem by Brian Wisecarver
If I’m anywhere around you, I can’t believe
I’ve got to push you away, to think, to breath
I look at your face, I try to inhale,
I try again and seem to fail.
I can’t even think of what I should do
the fact that we’re together seems untrue
you say “I love you”, I look into your eyes
I take a step back because my heart just flies.
I feel excited as he takes me by the waist
I can still remember how my heart raced
I can’t think of anything to way
as his lips come my way.
can’t do anything but stand still
as my dreams are fulfilled
I feel nothing but bliss
as we kiss.
he continues to hold me tight
now I can’t let him out my sight
this ecstasy I can’t control
as out emotions begin to unroll.
I don’t feel wrong, I feel completely right
as I continue to see him throughout the night
it’s like something that was meant to be
like a gift from the heavens, that was sent to me.
– Poem by Bernadette Molina
14. You Complete Me
When I met you I saw a spark in your eye.
I fell in love and that’s no lie.
We became closer and closer…
And for once in my life a guy wasn’t a poser.
I saw you every day in school
You told me you loved me I trust you I’m not a fool.
I finally got the nerve to actually ask you out
When you said yes I gave a big shout.
We went roller-skating and held each other’s hands…
That was the night I became your biggest fan.
We said “I love you” everyday
We could chat and text the day away.
Trust me, love is not a fee…
When I take a look around it’s only you and me.
– Poem by Vanessa Thomas
