Love and Friendship – English Poems

Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree—
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.

Painful Love – English Love Poems

Watching you from across the room
sends searing pain through my heart.
I think back to a year ago,
when I thought we’d never part.
My love for you just won’t die down –
it just grows with each new day.
I wish you’d dare to look at me
and hear what I have to say;
“I love you and I want you back – ”
but these words you just won’t hear.
You don’t seem to remember them –
all the memories I hold dear.
You were my first kiss, my first love
and now you don’t even care.
How could you just blow it away?
We were the perfect pair.
you seem content to let me go –
You’re doing fine as you are,
while I’m still missing how we were.
We had the best love by far.

First Time Love

For the first time in my dismal life
I feel love flow in my heart
the same heart once thought cold and lifeless
fills with glorious joy and happiness
because of a woman
whose spirit is full of passion
her eyes that shine like sapphire stars
filled with warmth and beauty
a smile that brings happiness to my sad existence
I have never known love until now
because of the way she touched my heart
took hold of my depressed soul
and showed me the beauty of life’s wonders
everything that I thought impossible
all seems to be within my grasp
I see everything in a new light
because of something I thought unworthy to feel
to feel love’s tender kiss
and I bask in its beauty so
because of the feelings of a woman
whom I would love now and ’til
my heart beats its final note to life’s great song

Corrupted Love – Love Poems

A warm sensation fills my body
My heart races with every touch
The softness of your voice soothes
My soul
As I lay there hoping the moment
Will never end
Calling out for you
Praying that you’ll never let me go
The sensation so strong
I can no longer feel my body
Slowly I fade in and out of reality
In an instant the warm sensation
Fades away
My heart empty
My soul torn apart
Lying there; wondering where I went
Wrong
Calling out for you, only to find
there is no answer
My mind invaded with thoughts
So cruel and unrefined
The sensation of fear of what’s to come
Slowly the reality over powering
The lust and fantasy
Leaving me empty
Confused on how to think or feel
The loneliness I feel
So wretched and compelled
Betrayal to myself
Revealing the terrors of my love
