The Moment I Saw You Poem by Charles Wiles
The moment I saw you
I could barely contain
All the butterflies jumping
It’s hard to explain.
My coolest persona
Just melted away
And my words came out jumbled
I forgot what to say.
I felt rather foolish
And thought you would leave
But the smile you then gave me
I still can’t believe.
The first time I saw you
You blew me away
But your smile still disarms me
When I see you each day.
Poems On Love Poem by Rabindranath Tagore
Love adorns itself;
it seeks to prove inward joy by outward beauty.
Love does not claim possession,
but gives freedom.
Love is an endless mystery,
for it has nothing else to explain it.
Love’s gift cannot be given,
it waits to be accepted.
Tell Me Softly Poem by Charles Wiles
Tell me softly, my sweet love,
Of how I won your heart.
Whisper now the gentle tale
Of how our love did start.
Tell me how we met by chance
One rainy day in June.
Tease me now of our first kiss
Beneath a summer moon.
Tell me where we said ‘hello’
And watched the dying storm.
Remind me how we huddled close
To keep each other warm.
Tell me, love, before I sleep,
Of how I won your heart,
Let me hear your voice once more
Before, at last, we part.
Heaven Sent Poem by Charles Wiles
Before that day I saw you
I never looked with true love’s eyes,
But angels are revealing
And shine through all disguise.
Before that day I heard you
I never thought true love would call,
But angels are enthralling
And so you made me fall.
Before that day I touched you
I never knew how true love felt,
But angels are embracing
And so my heart did melt.
Before that day I kissed you
I never tasted true love’s pull,
But angels are all giving
And let you drink your full.
Before that day I met you
I never knew what true love meant,
But angels are for loving
And you are heaven sent.
Picking Daisies In The Sun Poem by Captain Cur
I tossed a love poem to the sea,
I told it swim, my words, I let you free.
They came to rest upon an isle’s golden sand,
they declared not that they were written by my hand.
She read the grains while picking daisies in the sun
an unknown heart I’d never know I’d won.
Gladly do I part with thee
words of love given to the sea.
Awash on shores of lonely sand
etch in grains with unknown hand.
I know one whose heart is free
will give her love to the guileless sea;
if our worlds should combine by fate
my sails will call and I will wait,
I shall smell the sweet flowered air
and weave fresh daisies through her hair.
I read a love poem in the sand
that wrote itself with unknown hand.
I felt although a mystery
those words of love were meant for me.
I looked upon the glistening waves
and heard his song and said his name.
On a great ship he sailed alone
and to his heart I now belong.
I gathered all my daisies round,
and fashioned him a living crown.
Hold Me Poem by Charles Wiles
Sometimes I feel a little anxious
I wonder if the days with you will last.
You are the kind, enduring heart,
Banish all my fears, don’t part,
Hold me ’til the darkest hour has passed.
Sometimes I feel a little helpless
I wonder if the strength you give will stay.
You are the rock on which I stand,
Steady me, please take my hand,
Hold me now until the break of day.
Sometimes I feel a little lonely
I wonder when you next will hold me tight.
You are my world, I need you near,
Wrap me in your arms, come here,
Hold me close until the morning light.
Sometimes I feel a little broken
I wonder if you’ll heal me with your love.
You are my kiss, sweet remedy,
Press your lips to mine, mend me
Hold me breathless ’til the sun’s above.
Lovers Bound To Lovers Poem by Captain Cur
Why do I need so much of you?
What is it that I am hoping you will satisfy?
Can you fill my void?
Will you become my vice,
an unshakeable habit?
Will you dictate to my desire?
How long will you stay?
I am unresolved in many ways.
When I see you each first time,
you become more beautiful,
more beautiful than the last.
I commit idolatry because I worship you,
your body, the heat, the softness,
the texture of your mouth.
Against you I press.
I submit to the bondage of your flesh.
Your eyes quite still,
mesmerizing me with their calm
irresistible call, because you did not resist me,
but pulled me in with arms
incredibly strong and light.
Arms I had searched for and finally found.
Slowly, slowly, softly I am bound.
I am hungry for you,
my hunger ravenous.
I want to devour you.
I want to engulf you and take you into myself
and satisfy myself by using each entrance to you,
and never retract myself, but stay unresolved inside of you,
bound to your flesh and you bound to mine.
Lovers bound to lovers for all time.
Love Poems And Letters Poem by Harry J. Couchon Jr
Love poems and letters, once begun
Reveal my passion for you, my only one
Love poem or letter, which one today?
Both say I love you, in a special way
It all depends on the mood I’m in
That decides which form I will begin
A love letter, filled with passion and heat
Or a tender love poem, short and sweet
But no matter which, they’re all for you
You turn me on with all that you do
And letter or poem, they’re all sincere
Everyone saying I. Love You, My Dear
Love Poems Poem by Colinb Bradley
Your love poems are music to my heart,
They are pure art, You have my heart,
How long will this last,
The same poem a 1000 times,
Still feel like the first time,
They have so much meaning,
Can’t help my feelings,
Read your poems thinking,
My soul is lifting,
Heart is singing,
My words im laying on so thick,
Your poems make me feel love sick.
Love Is – Giving! Poem by Angelina Pandian
Love is giving
It is giving your smiles
To brush away another’s tears
It is hiding your scarred hand and
Offering the bunch of dew-kissed roses!
Love is encouraging in times of disappointment
It is holding hands when in fear
It is sharing burdens with joy
It is forgetting oneself – Thinking
And living selflessly for another.
This giving, this pouring out of
Body, Mind and Soul is – Love!
To be totally in love you have to give totally!
My Love Poem by Ana Maria Alma Delafuente
I want to crawl into the iris of your eye and fall fast into a quiet sleep.
I want to fall into your mouth.
I want to swim through your veins.
I want to drown in your heart.
Your eyes melt my winter.
Whether imagination or reality,
You are the one behind my breast.
I have locked you in my ribcage;
Hidden you beneath my flesh.
You are embedded in my nervous system.
I love you. I want you.
I want your flesh,
I want your bones,
I want your fluids,
I want your laughter,
I want your tears,
I want your thoughts,
I want your dreams,
I want your senses, I want your spirit, I want your love.
I want to breathe you into my lungs.
I want to drink you.
I want to sing you. Love me.
Love me love me love me,
And I will love you into the clouds.
When I Wake Up Every Morning Poem by Charles Wiles
When I wake up every morning
I always watch you for a while
Then I kiss you very lightly,
Watch your lips turn to a smile.
Then you ask me what the time is
And I whisper in your ear
That the hour hardly matters
When you’re lying warm and near.
Your smile grows slightly wider,
But you turn your face away,
Hide your head under the pillow,
Try to cheat the break of the day.
Your hair wisps round about you,
Flows like water to your hips,
But your neck soon bare before me
Feels the pressure of my lips.
Then I touch you very lightly,
Run my fingers down your spine,
And your body gently waking
Turns till eyes gaze into mine.
And in that very moment,
As your mouth seeks to entice,
When I wake up every morning,
I am lost in paradise.
Love Poems Poem by Michael Burch
When I touch you now, O sweet lover, full of fire,
melting like ice in my embrace when I part the delicate white lace,
pale flesh, and your face is so close that I breathe your breath
and your hair surrounds me like a wreath… tell me now.
O sweet, sweet lover, in good faith:
are you the thief who has stolen my heart?
Fortuitous Love Poem by Captain Cur
Truth and love, naked beauty in their arms,
taming man defeated by their charms.
On plush meadows loves youthful urges play,
the river calm, smooth daylight waning dusk,
circling slowly above coarse birds of prey
poised to kill sweet innocence with their lust.
True love discerns the vultures and the crows
steadfast it bears, unveils a tender pride,
outward it beams and passionately flows
supplanting the fragility of lies.
Fettered truths, past deceits their unkind guard,
fortuitous love now sounds escape’s alarm.
If Love Were Like Water Poem by Charles Wiles
If love were like water
I’d build you a fountain,
And if love were like stone
I’d bring you a mountain.
If love were like air
I’d set whirlwinds free,
But as these are not love
I’ll just give you me.
Each Time I Think Of You Poem by Charles Wiles
Did I say you are amazing?
Did I mention how I knew?
See how angels watch in wonder
Each time I think of you.
Did I tell you how you move me?
Perhaps you had a clue.
Watch how Cupid breaks his bowstring
Each time I think of you.
Did I say you are so special?
I’m sure you know it’s true.
Look the Gods themselves stop fighting
Each time I think of you.
Did I tell you that I love you?
Perhaps you knew this too,
For all the hosts of heaven stumble
Each time I think of you.
So Much To Miss Poem by Charles Wiles
You have such looks
The prettiest smile
In any face.
You have such style
A model’s walk
The sexiest eyes
You have such charm
A candid light
The cosiest touch
Each winter night.
You have it all
So much to miss
But loveliest is
Your tender kiss.
My New York Girl Poem by Charles Wiles
My New York girl, So sweet and kind, I cannot keep you rom my mind.
You came to me near every night and stayed with me till morning light.
Through silent words, I heard your voice and pursed lips kissed sweet and moist,
You made me laugh, You made me cry , You made me smile, and You made me sigh.
You made me strong ,You made me weak ,You made me bold , You made me meek.
You made me hope , You made me feel , You made me love , You seemed so real.
But every night , We could not touch I needed warmth
You craved it much. So then one night like none before.
You turned away and came no more.
The New York dawns are cold and grey
And daylight… washes dream away.
