Strung with love

Read time: about 4 minutes

Nothing screams love as poetry does. Writing poems expressing love in all its forms is the most human thing to do. From poems that talk about the sensuous high love gives you , to the heart ripping agony that heartache brings – Poetry is almost a synonym of love.


I for one absolutely love poetry , as it is the finest way to channel emotions. One can truly pour out their heart in these lines that are written right from their soul. Here are some snippets by different Poets which have my heart.

You and I against a rule , set for us by time.
A marker drawn to show our end , etched into its line.
The briefest moment shared with you – the longest on my mind.

  • Love and misadventure

Grow old with me
the best is yet to be
when our time has come
we will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
whaen the day is done
Gof bless our love
God bless our love

  • Poems that make grown women cry

“Why do you write ?” he asked.
So I can take my love for you and give it to the world , I reply.
Because you wont take it from me.

  • Lullabies

Body of a woman , white hills , white thighs ,
you look like a world , lying in surrender .
My rough peasant’s body digs in you
and makes the son leap from the depth of the earth.
I was alone like a tunnel . The birds fled from me , and night swamped me with its crushing invasion .
To survive myseld I forged into you like a weapon ,
like an arrow in my bow , a stone in my sling.

  • Twenty love poems and a song of despair.

You were you ,
and I was I ;
we were two
before our time .
I was yours
before I knew ,
and you have always been mine.

He placed his hands on my mind
before reaching for my waist
my hips or my lips
he didnt call me beautiful first
he called me exquisite.
-Milk and honey

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

  • The Prophet

I am hoping for a sign in the sky or a word from the stars. I am praying for a tear in the fabric of time so you and I can slip quietly away and not a single soul would think to miss us.

  • The universe of us.

When I am with you, we stay up all night,
When you’re not here, I can’t get to sleep.
Praise God for these two insomnias!
And the difference between them.
