Have you ever wanted to express your love through poetry but got hung up on the format or trying to figure out what rhymes with eyes? Writing poetry isn’t hard and in fact, when you write freestyle (which we do), the rules go out the window. You don’t have to rhyme at all, unless you want to.
A love poem is simply your thoughts and feelings on paper. If you put music to it, you’d have a song. If you put a backbeat to it, you’d have a rap.
It does, however, have a flow to it. Each line is concise and expresses one thought. Here’s an example:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Your bulging muscles
Make me weak.
See? It may sound corny and make you chuckle, but it brings a visual of how much I love watching Mr. N do 525 push-ups every morning.
While you’re working out your love poem to your beloved this Valentine’s Day, why not check out our collection of love poems written by Mr. N to me during our engagement. It’s 100% honest and shows our relationship as we go from dating to engagement to our wedding day.
Title: Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year
Author: N. N. Light
Genre: Poetry, Love Poetry
Winner of the 2017 IAN Book of the Year – Poetry Finalist Award
I had been searching for love my whole life. It took the opening up of the world via technology for me to find my soulmate. Once I laid eyes on her, at the arrivals gate, I knew I was never going to let her go. The following is a collection of poems I wrote to my angel, from our first meeting up until our wedding day. I was working crazy hours as a chef and I had a long commute. I chose my commuting time to pen her a poem each day. These poems speak of our life, our challenges and our growth together...in every aspect they speak of our love.
May this book give someone the courage to let their special someone know how much they care for them and how much they mean to them. Saying I love you is a gift you can give many times a day.
Thoughts in the Rain
As the rain fell on my journey
My mind wandered back
To the glorious slumber
Next to my sleeping angel.
Her auburn locks surround her face
Like a halo of an angel
It is her love I gloriously embrace
And thank God for all its wonders.
