Romance Poem - “I’m Yours” by WithYouInSpirit


Do you remember the time when we first met?

Locking eyes silently over the table of a high school hall.

Of course you wouldn’t. Time has passed too quickly, with too much turmoil.

But I did, because I was yours.


Do you remember that day you first spoke to me?

After so many secret glances, shared euphoria.

The sky had seemed to stretch into infinity above our heads.

The swallows dipped and weaved through the aether, as if to welcome us.

They knew what was to pass.

For you see, I was yours.


You stood upon that campus roof and stared.

I was greeted by the deep ocean currents. Precious, Sapphire irises gracing me with their benevolence.

Then you smiled, and the ocean gave way to the gates of heaven themselves.

Was that the gentle patter of rain descending to embrace me? No. Only your voice of course.

“I’ve been waiting”. That was all the encouragement I would ever need. Where there was a void, was now whole.

I didn’t need to speak. I was yours.


Do you remember those years we spent as one?

I do. How could I not? It was like an eternity, of the best kind.

We were as two sides of the same coin, you and I.

It’s a pity none of that was destined to last forever.

The heavens that you had once embodied returned to take you into their embrace.

You may think me sad, but that is not it at all.

Sadness eludes me, as long as I am yours.

Romance Poem - "Never Been in Love" by riki
Comment:
I wanted to do a different type of romance poem
I’ve never been in love before
So I wouldn’t know
What it’s like to love
Someone unconditionally

True, I have some crushes
But it’s not the same.
It was just puppy love
Nothing more.

Although I sometimes wonder
What it would be like
To be deeply in love
With someone

Is it an electric spark
That jolts you in your veins
Or is it an indescribable feeling
That you just know you found the one?

Is it frightening
To give a bit of yourself -
A part of your soul -
To someone else?

To place complete trust
And share your darkest
Secrets and fears
To someone other than yourself?

To risk ostracism
And condemnation
From those who
Oppose the romance?

To love and to cherish
Through thick and thin
No matter how high
The costs?

To be willing to spend
The rest of your life
With the person
Who vows to do the same?

Maybe I’ll know the answers
One day
When I fall in love
Someday

Romance Poem - "The Ways of Love over Time" by Organizized

A kiss,
held for just a moment longer
A slow dance
in the midst of a raging storm
A thousand memories
in one quiet song
Two hands entwined,
one cold, one warm

A moment of sinking
in the eyes of the other
Two fools,
remembering two fools of old;
A time without thinking,
without conscience or bother
When all music was serenades
and all sunsets were gold

And as we grew older,
romance grew smaller…
yet never weaker

A kiss, a moment,
a waltz by firelight
Impervious, then
to all things routine
Knowing, once more
that love is bigger
Bigger than the life
happening in-between

Romance Poem - "untitled" by Xadyu


Being in love is losing your heart in hers,
Asking how fresh such a bouquet can plucked.
Tears still liquid, and stalks braided softly.

Love is your worries,
and love is wondering

What keeps this infatuation standing,
that without question, you give everything from yourself.
Your mouth lives for hers, never touching lips.

Your fingers entwined, as seaweed flows with the waves.
Her eyes, which the sky reflected.
Gazing in yours, teasing your heart.

The other, breaking hearts, where you often forget your heart.
Love, sometimes very cruel.. Where cruelty, is called cruelty.
And heart wounds burns.

Love..

Love is when you give everything of your everything.
Your mouth goes for hers, and gently touches your own.
Your hands weave through hers, but gently touches your own.

I can't help but to stare into this mirror.. as it stares right back.

My feelings are now never-ending.. Not for you, for..




This rope around my neck

Beloved by Arjuna

How much I love you?

The love that will make me

Rise to the Heavens with you.
My and your Soul fuses to become one.
Our love is Immortal. I will love you day and night.

I will love you with every moments of my life
I will love you until our souls get fused in God

The world before us is full of dreams

So beautiful and peaceful

So we jump into this world together
Into Happiness and sorrows together
And we will overcome it together.

I will love you with all height,depth and breadth of this universe

Our kiss is holy

And immortal

O my Beloved.

Narcissus by MarmaladeSky



Love is a horrible disease
It’s out of my control
Tearing others apart
Heart and soul


No matter where I go, they are always staring at me
Burning gazes and flushed cheeks
A touch would made them faint, that’s a guarantee
Stuttering and flirting techniques
They can’t help it, everyone wants to play

It’s something natural, a reaction to perfection
Blow a kiss and wink
I honestly don’t even have to try, gravity pulls everyone in my direction
They all fall, one by one
I can’t help it, the universe made me this way


That horrible, uncontrollable disease
It makes everyone fall in love with me.
Only I am good enough for my own affection
And that is how it’s meant to be


Obviously I dont mean these words. (Or do I?)

Romance Poem - "Their Definition of Love" by Elusia

A book in my hand
Tells many myths
About how love starts
The beginning and end of romance

Starts at one sight
Of their first infatuations
And the sweet nature of youth
Clouded in affections

Though all come as they go
Many books after telling the same
Tales with complicated matter
But all endings entranced with joy

Love is bright!
May tragedy leaves!
Love solves everything
And may it continue to spread

As it duplicates again
Interpretations’ dull and cliché
Satisfaction fell off of my face
For I was prone to rest

Phew, that took a long while but I hope you guys like it \o/

I was actually thinking of two ideas but decided to stick with this one since I like this more.

Strawberries - A poem by Panda


Oh, fickle memory
I'll never be able to leave that place
That faraway lodge with no clocks
Only endless, clear summer nights

That humid evening on the hill
When we played tag on farm fields
When you tripped and fell onto me
Your eyes closed slowly, your sweet breath simmered my skin

Ah, that perfect backdrop of stars
If someone where to ask
I'd say I can't digest the nostalgia
I can still taste the strawberries on my lips


People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did... But they'll never forget how they felt

Romance Poem: "Love is one unexplainable human feeling " by Darky to Elusia

"What is love" you would ask me,
I could say "I don't know, it's a sort of affection, maybe."
Love is just a word , and at the same time,
Love is for two persons in one story.

Unfanthomable, I would say,
"It's unexplainable , I can't shake this feeling,
It's desirable, I want to make it mine,
Erasable, I wish it could be,
But, insatiable I would stay "

Unknown to love, nor to hate,
I kept wondering about it
I would think about this existance,
But here you come , closing the distance..

A few words, hesitant, I would ask you for a reality,
But I knew it could only be a dream.
As pure as you were, you decided to stretch your hand.
As curious as a child, unknow to this feeling , I took it.

Time passed, my heart began beating faster with this feeling.
Was it because of you, or was it me ?
Questions, I kept asking,
Answers , you were delivering me..

Even today, I can't answer your questions,
Because of this distance,
Because of me, a mix of personnalities, an alter of purity.

Even today, I can't tell if you really love me,
Because now, I can say it clearly and surely,

"You are my love "

i think this poem is my most honest of them all, and the answer I sought was already in front of me since the beginning.
I would also like to excuse myself for these absences, Elu-chan
