Flowers, chocolates, cheesy pick-up lines, sure they’re romantic cliches, but what’s the one thing you can do with your partner that will really set you apart? The answer is poetry.
Nothing sets the mood like a heart-felt poem written by a lovestruck artist, expressing his fondness through the written word.
If you can’t write a poem for your loved one, you should try reading them together.
Here are 5 poems that will make you believe in love and make you realize how incredibly blessed you are to have someone you can spend your whole life with.
1. What I Love Most About You
This is a modern twist on the classic 10 Things I Hate About You, except the poet, has only listed out things she loves about her better half. It’s sweet, heartfelt, and will melt your insides (in a good way, of course!) Read this poem with your beau or take it up as an exercise to pen down some reasons why you’re grateful to have this person in your life.
2. Not Your Usual Fairytale
Hauntingly beautiful, this poem makes you realize that relationships are hard work. They require effort, but that’s what makes them so beautiful – you have something worth fighting for. Tragic tales and forbidden love stories are not only a thing of the past, they are very much a reality even today; it really makes you think, about why we, as humans and well-wishers, make something as innate as love so very complicated.
3. To Ghalib, With Love
If this poem teaches us anything, it’s that you don’t have to be the best poet out there to express your thoughts and feelings. Like Ghalib, we all have an artist inside of us, and all it requires is a little push, from no one but ourselves, to get out there. Love, like creativity, comes naturally to us.
4. The Love I Give Myself
You can’t expect to love someone else unless you love yourself first. Whether it’s your hair, nails, body, or even mind, you have to start appreciating yourself and taking care, even when it seems like there’s no one out there who cares. We’re here to tell you that’s not true – you’re never alone in your battles. Read this story to discover some reasons why you need to start appreciating yourself a bit more.
5. First Love
Remember the giddy, butterflies in your stomach feeling, the first time you ever liked somebody? That youthfulness, the immaturity, all seems so far away now that if we had one wish it would be to go back to the simpler times. There’s nothing like the adventure and excitement that comes with your first love, and that feeling is irreplaceable.
