Steal Your Love

*Someone who makes your world a better place.  Someone worth fighting for.  Someone worth struggling for. Someone you’d overcome any obstacle or distance for because they’re worth it to you.*


When daylight fades I see your pretty face.

Thoughts of you put me in a better place.

Life seems lonely without you by my side.

To win your heart I’d travel far and wide.

Nothing could stop me from stealing your heart.

No distance would ever keep us apart.

Life is a road worth riding to find you.

You intersect it as the perfect view.

I’d fight for you until the end of days.

Thoughts of us together set me ablaze.

You’re truly a goddess beyond compare.

I have never seen a beauty so fair.

Your innocent perfection stills my soul.

To steal your love is my ultimate goal.

Worlds Apart

*About someone who comes out of nowhere and completely wins you over. You’re really into them and you want to make them feel the same way, the faster the better.*


I see a new light when I look at you.

I’m left hypnotized by all that you do.

Looking into your eyes fills me with bliss.

I could find true happiness in your kiss.

Your caring heart could soothe any hurt soul.

A love with you could make any man whole.

You could make any man freeze with your gaze.

Your heartwarming smile puts me in a daze.

I’ve never seen such a beautiful heart.

Compared to the rest, you are worlds apart.

You’ve caused butterflies to stir within me.

You grant a happiness that sets me free.

I felt lost and confused before you came.

One day I hope to make you feel the same.

Forbidden Lust

*About someone you can’t have, but someone who you really want.  It wouldn’t realistically work out but the fantasy in your head is pretty nice.  The more you think about them though, the more you realize there’s more to it than just wanting them, but you accept how things are because that’s what’s right to you.*


When I see your beauty I know desire.

You bring out the passion within my heart.

The way I long for you burns like fire.

I hate all the time that we spend apart.

You’re a temptress the way you look at me.

This forbidden lust seems like the best prize.

I want to break these cages and be set free.

There’s more to this than I think we realize.

When too much time passes I miss your face.

When I see your lips I want them with mine.

When you come around my heart starts to race.

I am aware how this love cannot shine.

Forbidden to me, but not to my soul.

Together as one the world would be whole.

Wind of Change

*About when it doesn’t work out and the thought process of trying to rationalize just who a person really is.  After understanding people change or might not be who you think they are, there is the realization that life goes on so you should just make the best of it and have fun.*


The universe is crashing around me.

Memories seem to be fading to black.

At at time my heart seemed like it was free.

A vision of you is what I still lack.

It seems people change as the seasons do.

Comfort cannot exist in your dark eyes.

I don’t know what I see when I see you.

I used to think you were the perfect prize.

There was a time when the future was gold.

There was a time when holding you felt right.

There was a time I never dreamt we’d fold.

There was a time you were the perfect sight.

People will change like the wind and the tide.

Life will go on so I’ll enjoy the ride.

Moon Of My Life

*Well I forget who but I was talking to one of my friends about the Game of Thrones tv series and the title was from something one character referred to his wife as.  Wrote it a few weeks ago with the previous post, just forgot to put it on here.*


Days without you are days without sunlight.

Your presence alone makes my world feel right.

You are the blood that flows throughout my veins.

You’r the miracle cure to all my pains.

You are the radiant moon of my life.

You’re the goddess who ends all of my strife.

I know perfection looking in your eyes,

Th eyes of an angel sent from the skis.

You are my one eternally true love.

You’re the perfection I’e always dreamt of.

You’ve captured every piece of my heart.

You’ve had me ensnared from the very start.

I dream of a future where you’re with me.

Since you’ve entered my life you’ve set me free.

Perfect Dreams

*Wrote this a while back but forgot to put it up here.  Just about someone who enters your life and suddenly makes it all better.  You become crazy about them and you’re happy every time you think about them.*


When I hear your voice, your words enchant me.

The thoughts you give me make my heart feel free.

I become spellbound when I see your face.

Simply thinking of you makes my heart race.

I know true paradise when you’re around.

It feels like my lost soul has just been found.

I would give anything to have your love.

Lately at night, you’ve been all I’ve thought of.

You are the true love of my perfect dreams.

I can’t believe how surreal it all seems.

Things have been great since you entered my life.

Thinking of you cleanses my soul of strife.

I’m helplessly caught up in all you do.

True perfection is a future with you.

*About someone you’re hoping for another chance with.  Someone you completely think it will work with.  The one who could be “the one who got away”, except you don’t want to let them.*


When I see your face my heart starts to care.

I pray my hopes aren’t too much to bear.

I dream that it will work out in the end.

I dream that with you this torn heart will mend.

I’m a helpless fool caught up in this love.

But late at night you’re still all I think of.

Love fails to follow all the rules of time.

But life without you would be a sad crime.

The lonely nights feel like an awful dream.

Without your love my heart can only scream.

I pray for a time when you can be mine.

My eyes have never known beauty so fine.

You’re perfect to me in every way.

I’ll love you until the end of my days.

Another Night And You’re Still Far Away

*The title being taken from the first line is a reference to another poet.  This is about someone you have a failed relationship with.  It keeps you up at night and you reflect about it.  Sometimes there’s distance with this person afterwards, real or imagined.  But you’re still crazy about them, and you want it to work even if it doesn’t look like it will in your head.  They’re still what you want. You want them to feel the way they make you feel when they’re on your mind.


Another night and you’re still far away.

Another restless time I’m left awake.

This pattern repeats with every day.

My heart has done nothing by cry and ache.

Without you by my side nothing seems right.

This passionate love refuses to die.

I wake from dreams wishing I held you tight.

Instead, the tears come and I’m left to cry.

Even when you’re near you still remain far.

With real distance my heart is torn apart.

I long to show you how special you are.

It’s right that you hold the key to my heart.

Each night I stay up, you’re all I think of.

Despite the odds, you’ll always have my love.

Eternal Love

*This is the 100th love poem on the site despite how many love poems there are compared to other types.  At the moment it’s the longest poem I’ve ever written, 114 lines of iambic pentameter following a Shakespearean rhyme pattern (ababcdcd….).  There are 2 sets of lines with a similar rhyme scheme but they are slightly different, so no 2 sets of lines is a repeated rhyme pattern.  It’s about someone you’re crazy for.  Someone you really want to be with more than anything.  They’re everything to you. You only want them, and nothing else would ever be good enough because of who they are and what they do to you. You’re right together, and you want them and no one else.*


What I’ve always wanted is to have you.

In my eyes your perfection shines like gold.

Despite any trouble I’d fight on through.

I will be your shelter from freezing cold.

In despondent nights you’ll stay in my arms.

Together as one we’ll last in this world.

We will overcome any pain that harms.

At first sight my heart was truly left whirled.

It was in that moment I knew desire.

It was then that the flames ensnared my heart.

With hungry eyes I longed for your fire.

Your burning passion has torn me apart.

There are times when I’m lost in thought for days.

There are times when I long for you at night.

Thoughts of your love leave my soul in a daze.

Just the look on your face sets me alight.

I’m spellbound by the sparkle in your eyes.

My senses swoon when I pick up your scent.

You’re better than you will ever realize.

You’re an angel who must be heaven sent.

Thoughts of you send my heart to new places.

The butterflies beat my heart like a drum.

When I think of your kiss my heart races.

A world without you would make all life numb.

When you’re around my worries disappear.

When I gaze in your eyes I have no strife.

Your radiant smile can quell any fear.

I have known peace since you’ve entered my life.

These feelings you cause make my world sublime.

There is nothing better that could compare.

Thinking of you keeps me frozen in time.

You are the answer to all of my prayers.

You are the perfection I see in dreams.

In the sky you’d be the glistening moon,

With shining beauty in your glowing beams.

Having your love would be a precious boon.

I’d give anything to hear from your voice,

To hear those three words from your very speech.

Those honeyed words would make my heart rejoice.

Words of commitment that I’d never breach.

I could have never dreamt of love so pure.

I never pictured love simple and clean.

But I never knew a goddess before.

I never knew such a heavenly queen.

Such perfection is truly royalty.

I’d swear myself to be your loving king.

I’d give you my ethereal loyalty.

Your love could make grieving Orpheus sing.

You make my heart sing a beautiful song,

While my soul plays a melody so soft.

This perfect fusion makes my love grow strong.

Thinking of you sends my spirit aloft.

Loving you is a catharsis within.

Untamed emotion fills my very soul.

Each of these thoughts makes my head start to spin,

But every thought makes my life feel whole.

Many thoughts fill my head at all hours.

They make me wonder how I stay intact.

I ache for a love we can call ours.

You’re who I’ve always wanted to attract.

You’re the only one who’s made me like this.

You’re the only one who gives me this spark.

When I see you I feel heavenly bliss.

Missing you makes this whole world become dark.

Without you life becomes empty and blank.

Life is a struggle without you nearby.

When you’re gone I become lifeless and dank.

Fragments of my heart scream out just to cry.

Love without you would still leave me lonely.

You make me feel in ways like no other.

You truly are my one and my only.

I know there would never be another.

No beauty compares to your perfection.

No one could equal what you give to me.

There’s no one I’d rather give affection.

There is no one with whom I’d rather be.

If you were the wind you’d be the calm breeze.

In the seasons you’d be the Springtime sun.

With your love I would always be at ease,

Because I know that you’re truly the one.

I couldn’t dream of you going away.

My heart couldn’t handle knowing such pain.

I always hope that you’ll be here to stay.

Despite my words it’s still hard to explain.

You mean more to me than you’d ever know.

When you’re in my arms these feelings expand.

When I miss you they continue to grow.

Without you I’m just a line in the sand.

The passion I feel will never burn out.

I only hope you can feel it enough.

You’re truly all I ever think about.

I only hope this love won’t know rebuff.

This fervent love for you will never yield.

These butterflies will always make me shake.

When you need protection I’ll be your shield.

I’ll never let your heart feel pain or ache.

Protecting your heart will be my duty.

I’ll be by your side and I’ll never leave.

I’d sacrifice so much for your beauty.

When we are together your heart won’t grieve.

You’ve given my heart real reason to plead.

You make me feel like I am on cloud nine.

The love you can grant is the love I need.

I would give anything to make you mine.

I’ll love you until I turn back to dust.

I’ll love you when my body fades to bone.

I’ll love you after my heart starts to rust.

I’ll love you when I pass to the unknown.

Loving you makes me truly feel alive.

I cannot believe that I know such luck.

This burning love of mine will always thrive,

Because at first sight you left me awestruck.

You’ll always be all I ever think of.

You’ll be my forever eternal love.

* Just about pouring your heart out and telling someone how much you love them.  Would’ve named it Catharsis but I kindof already wrote that one.*

When I look in your eyes my heart knows peace.

Loving you is emotional release.

The catharsis consumes my very soul.

When you walk by my universe is whole.

These feelings you cause take me to the skies.

I see heaven when I look in your eyes.

Your voice alone soothes the pain in my heart.

It truly feels like you’re my missing part.

The release you grant me fills me with love.

It’s hard to think when you’re all I dream of.

I think of you when I can’t sleep at night.

I am spellbound by your beautiful light.

I’ll stand by you until the end of time.

Who knew that such love could be so sublime?
