Love and Relationships poems
Love and relationships poems have been around for centuries. They are a way for people to express their emotions and feelings towards someone else. Often, these poems are written about love and relationships that have ended.
However, they can also be about new love and relationships that are just beginning. Love and relationships poems can be sad, happy, or anywhere in between. They can be about any kind of love, including romantic love, family love, or platonic love.
1. The Petal Spell
i saw her smile from a million miles away as she approached me. with the gentlest of embrace she greeted me and with soft lips to my earlobe she whispered words that vanquish my fears and blues and straightaway i fell under her petal spell. we spent time in the company of intellectual conversations and she captivated my interest and curiosity. and gradually i surrendered to the powers of her petal spell. she knows how to make me smile even in the most gloomy situations, she has the Midas effect on almost everything she touches in my life. and just like that i fell headlong into her petal spell. one day she trusted me enough with her petals like she trusted the butterfly and she let me taste her nectar. ever since that day i have sunk deeper in her petal spell.
2. Fleeting Moments
these moments with you though few and far apart, i count and cherish each one of them with all of my heart. those moments when we can steal away without anyone knowing. without anyone noticing, i savour them all. race and religion have dealt us a cruel and insensitive blow. they have us hiding our love lights under a bushel. they rob us of so much of what we have in common and is dying to share with each other. they have robbed us of the burning need to be free to love each other the way we choose. they are stifling our growth together. as we sit here in this cosy yet unfriendly room i can feel the time as it slips through our fingers and i can feel the cumulative sadness coursing through our veins transforming our faces. it’s the end of another episode, of sneak away. its time for us to go our separate ways. another kiss goodbye, another bittersweet embrace, another until we can find a way to steal some more time to be with each other. another bouquet of memory to be placed in the vase of our accumulated escapades.
3. In My Dreams
did you feel it? last night i was butterfly caressing you. your eyes got wide with sensual excitement and your skin glistened with perspiration from the ensuing heat. did you feel it? my fingers were roaming the pastures of your hidden fantasies and i felt your awakened pores speaking a familiar language of desire. did you hear me? i was whispering in your ears all the things i carried as secrets all these years. i have been waiting for this opportune moment just say what you have always mean to me. did you smell it? i was wearing your favourite fragrance the one that makes you giddy with weakness, that same one that breakdown all your resistance didn’t you feel me, baby? last night you were in my dreams and i didn’t want to wake up.
Poems about relationships ups and downs
In any close relationship, there are bound to be ups and downs. This is reflected in much of the poetry written about relationships. For example, a poem might describe the euphoria of falling in love, followed by the pain of heartbreak.
Or, a poem might describe the mundane day-to-day reality of a long-term relationship. In either case, poetry can provide insight into the complex emotions involved in relationships.
4. Unexplained Tears
if only her tears could speak i would hear more than what i can see and more than she chooses to say to me. kept in emotions seeping through her red and swollen eyelids which buckle under the weight of built-up stress and intense pressures. if her tears could mirror her true hurt and the unspoken pains she conceals maybe i would be more compassionate in the appropriate way. more understanding. more sympathetic. i have sat through many of her unexplained tears. i have been in the company of tears where the only things i was knowledgeable to offer was my supportive shoulders and a smattering of comforting words. if only her tears were acid enough to burn my skins, maybe when they fall from her eyes i would be able to relate to her on a deeper level when she is this sad.
5. The Ex-Factor
some girls never get over it. there are always residues of an ex-boyfriend or an ex-lover loitering in the corners of their minds. they gossip about their ex with friends and family and every so often you get compared to him, sometimes favourably other times unfavourably. there are the blame games for adverse and recurring unsavoury behaviours. in the ex crossfire i am a victim of things i never created. her apparent lack of trust in some of my innocent actions, her unfounded and frequent suspicions about my precise whereabouts and unanswered calls. her ex-factor issues are like the sword of Damocles hanging over our relationship.
6. Seasons of Love
she came to me in the autumn of her love. withered and battered because of a rough summer. she drifting on the wings of the northern winds. discolored but still true to her natural shape. i cuddled her throughout the harsh and unforgiving winter, and nurtured her through the encouraging and recuperating spring. now she is in full summer’s bloom. her radiant smile is back, her shimmering glow is brilliant again, the vitality is back in her every step, the cheerful echo in her laughter can be heard from miles away again. it’s her happy times again.
Poem about relationships hard times
The difficulties that we face in our relationships can often be the source of great poetry. In fact, many of the most famous poems throughout history have been about the hard times that we experience in our relationships.
This is because poetry provides us with a way to express the deep emotions that we feel during these difficult times. It can be a way to release our pain and share our stories with others who may be going through similar experiences.
7. Loving the Hurt Away
they are hardest to love when they don’t know how to love themselves. they are harder to please when they are never satisfied with the love you give. they see you through the lens of broken trust, scarred emotions and a heart they no longer want. i am a barefoot relationship soldier in a minefield littered with broken glass hearts. they often put up superficial barriers because its what they find safety and security in, they are always suspicious, always overprotecting, always over analysing. they come from a place where hearts get treated unkindly and having a heart is an impediment. it's easy to blame but please don’t; strive to understand and sympathise you might be there only lifeline at this time.
8. Troubled Woman
she came from a family tree rooted in pain where neglect and abuse was the liquid that watered their roots. she grew up in a home where molestation, destructive criticism, and fussing and fighting was the love language she grew to know. now she is indifferent to tender touches, suspicious of genuine love, guarded about matters of the heart and resentful of things romantic. she celebrates destruction with effortless ease but finds it hard to see the need for tenderness. loving her is like trying to make delicious bread from stone. being with her is like living in a house made of shared glass floor. my mental health is under constant siege, my face is contorted with stress and my life takes on a new level of complexity by the passing minutes. i thought about leaving so many times before but somehow my love for her compels me to stay. unhealthy? yes, i know. but sometimes we must be strong enough to love despite imperfections and past hurt.
9. Over You
ever since the day you walked away i was over you. i never looked back even though i still remember. my eyes might have leaked but my soul was never weak. i have never been tempted to rekindle the fire but every now and again my knees still get weak at the thought of you. i have been over you for a long time now but in my dreams you still make my heart leap, i still quiver at the mention of your name and the image of your unspoiled beauty still gets me jittery. lonely nights still evoke fond memories of you and me, and the sound of those love songs we use to play still rings in the halls of my ears. ever since that day, you walked out of my life i was over you. i never looked back even though i still remember so much about you and me.
