Love
By: Wrye


Inspired by the people in my life

A dream.
A fantasy.
An Illusion.
A painting.

Sways of silky hair,
Sparkle of lucid eyes,
Wisps of a fragrant scent,
Melodies of a gentle voice.

In front,
I idolize your uniqueness.

Beside,
I love you with all my heart.

Behind,
I appreciate your support.

Without you,
I become miserable and sad.

Soft and gentle.
Alluring and enticing.
Melodious and sweet.
Beautiful and enchanted.

A song,
Hummed for a

Dreamy slumber.

Warm summer breeze.
Starry night sky.
Calm pristine lake.
Small lush hilltop.
Melodious birds' chirping.

A dreamy rendezvous.
A romantic evening.
A passionate moment.

Blossoms of sweet love.
Hands together.
Exchanges of shy glances.

Never forgotten.
Always memorable.

Gentle.
Sweet.
Joyful.
Kind.
Eternal.

Never will I Forget

Your love.

Continuous and joyful,
The melody of laughter,
Sweet and gentle,
Embodying bliss.

A smile.
A giggle.

Across the vast plains,
Upward the rocky mountains,
Into the bustling cities,
Throughout the world,
I am in search of

A fragrant scent.
A sweet voice.
A comforting warmth.
A special someone.

Under the clear azure sky,
Beside the cherry blossoms,
Without a doubt,
I finally found you.

A delicate thing,
love can be easily broken.
Falling in love takes but a moment.
Losing oneself in love, another.
Love is a beautiful thing,
like our sixth sense to the world
though able to bring warmth to our hearts,
love can also break our hearts to pieces.
Love is a complicated affair

When you felt lonely,
I came to sit with you.

When you cried continuously,
I came to soothe you.

When you felt lost,
I held your hands in mine.

Every single moment,
wherever you are,
forever together.

Your hands in the warmth of mine,
connecting our hearts as a whole.

Holding your hands together in mine,
Watching your hair afloat the breeze,
Gazing at you perfect facial features,
I waited until you were ready.

Closing your radiant and shining eyes,
Moving steadily closer toward you,
Meeting your small and soft lips with mine,
I kissed you under the starlight
As if there is no tomorrow.

Across the lush meadows
Beyond the roaring seas
Past the bustling cities,
You will come and look for me.

Under the white and airy clouds
Splattering raindrops pouring down
Drifting snow layers upon the ground
You called out my name without reply.

Sunken back at your cozy home
Crying continuously because of loss of hope
Closing your hands over my picture
You felt afraid that I am gone forever.

But don’t despair or falter
Look over the horizon
Seek beyond what you expect
Because you will find me
Always waiting for you.

Love me,
with me,
protect me
or not.
But don’t woo me with fake love.

Loving me isn’t
child’s play,
an immature game,
or blind dating.
If you are truthful,
you will know what I mean.

Don’t disrespect our love.
Our love isn’t a fool’s game.
It is of our lives and destinies.

So love me affectionately.

Looking out the window
Into the bright morning sunlight
Into the dark night sky,
I imagine of

A day,
When worlds clash together,
Forming the strong bonds of
Our friendship and love.

Reaching out my hands,
Smiling warmly,
Wishing for your presence,
I daydream of

A moment,
When time seems to stop for us,
Expressing excitement and bliss
Of our first meeting.

In the passing of the seasons,
you are always so different,
changing yet still yourself.

Across the vast lush fields,
running wildly as if flying.
Your delightful laughter.

Amongst the clovers,
searching fervently for a four leaf clover.
Your passionate curiosity.

On the dirt road,
stumbled and injured yourself.
Your painful tears.

In the midst of a dense forest,
wandering aimlessly and lost.
Your fearful whimpers.

In the middle of an argument
exchanging verbal dissents.
Your infuriating anger.

Beside the cherry blossoms,
cherishing everything with friends.
Your heartwarming smile.

Under the starlight,
meeting your soft lips with mine.
Your rosy blush.

Our memories,
fragile and ephemeral.
Let’s hold onto them tightly.
Remember them always.

The flower that binds our love
Sits glamorously in a clear vase.
But then one day, when the petals fall,
Our love dwindles.

On the first day,
One petal fell. Six more left.
I already feel a part of you gone.

On the second day,
Another petal fell. Five more left.
We bickered about trivial problems.

On the third day,
Another petal fell. Four more left.
I sense more of you missing.

On the fourth day,
Another petal fell. Three more left.
We often have heated arguments.

On the fifth day,
Another petal fell. Two more left.
I just realized how different we are.

On the sixth day,
Another petal fell. One more left.
I have finally lost you.

On the seventh day,
The last petal fell. No more petals left.
You left me all alone.

You took away…

My heart,
Shattered my hopes of love
Like breaking glass into pieces.

Cold and terrible,
the darkness engulfs me
as it makes me shiver
in fright and pain.

I don't want to be lonely,
not with the darkness,
not with the coldness,
not with the suffering.

Please shine a light into my heart,
illuminate my way outwards.

I don't want to be lonely,
not with pain,
not with dread,
not with sorrow.

Please guide my weak inner light,
take me along with you toward light.

Without light and full of darkness,
I can only dream
to hope,
to wish,
to wonder,
to realize,
to seek
a way for me to climb out of my loneliness.

In the midst of everything,

You,
Into the distance,
Vanished without a trace.

Shattered heart.
Forgotten love.
Broken trust.
Crushed promises.
Forsaken memories.

As if...

I,
Trapped in the void,
Betrayed and alone.

Broken into pieces,
Torn apart heedlessly,
Tainted with sins,
Lost in thought.

Hurt and shattered,
Trapped in a cage,
Unable to fly,
Like an injured fledging.

Searching for the wings,
Seek a pathway,
Freedom.

I wonder about...

The past,
Now broken into fragments
Of bittersweet memories.

The truth,
Now slipping behind the facades
Of false lies and distrust.

The miseries,
Now engulfing me like
A roaring ocean of darkness.

The love,
Now faltering clumsily into
A whirlpool of hatred.

The dreams,
Now withered like
Never blooming flowers.

Riddled with questions,
Lacking plausible answers.

You came and left
Like an evaporating vapor

Breaking my heart into pieces.
Please come back.

My heart
My mind
My body
Aching for the day when
You come back.

Please come back
Because I want to be truly loved
And my broken heart mended.

A whole heart when you first came.
Then a crack, another, and another
Soon my heart shattered into pieces
After you left me alone.
Please come back.

Please come back
Because I want you to fill
My broken heart with your love again.

Looking at your beautiful eyes,
Running my hand through your silky hair,
Touching your small and warm hands,
I admired you under the starlight.

I don’t ever cry for sorrow.
I cry for the swelling anger in my heart.
I groan for the deepest felt pain.
I sense the realities of such a simple world.
I cry again and again in my miserable heart.
I feel the daylight sapping out of me.
I am losing the dignity of who I am.
I can only be part of the night and darkness.

My warmth,
Engulfed me in darkness,
Ever so cold and so miserable.

My dream,
Impeding my road to the future
Like curtailing my life.

My dignity,
Mocking me as incompetent,
Ever so useless and inane.

My mind,
Driving to my limits and
Destroying my sanity.

Broken and fragile,
Deprave and lifeless,
I watch you take away
The last remnants of myself.

The realities and the truths
In my sad heart and eyes
Are now all false and deceitful.

The ground now feels empty
The surroundings are now full of lies.
As I fall, I feel like I can’t ever get up.

My tears swell in my sparkling eyes
As I cry and cry continuously until
I can’t anymore.

Why did my love be like that?

I don’t know why.
I don’t know how.
I just don’t believe it.

Please tell me everything is normal.
Please help me stand upright again.
Please show me love and friendship.

I don't want to be lonely,
not with the darkness,
not with the coldness,
not with the suffering.

I don't want to be lonely,
not with pain,
not with dread,
not with sorrow.

Please take my hand with the warmth of yours,
Shine your bright heart into the darkness of mine.

Because all I want is to be with you and
not lonely anymore.

We,
bound by our fate,
changing our destiny,
reborn anew everyday.

Every sunrise and sunset,
every passing day.
The beginning of the end,
the end of the beginning.

Without change,
forever, we are our fate's victims.

On the other hand,
with change...

Endless possibilities,
like the vast sky,
like the deep ocean,
like the boundless space.

Although infinite choices,
little by little,
everything starts from there.

Authors Note- My first "real attempt" at a long poem. The subject of this poem is how love can be the best and worst things to ever happen to you. Sometimes love hurts but everyone will come around soon enough. When you have it, it's the best in the world but never a sure thing. Always look up if you are let down.

Thank you for posting a nice poem that fits into the word limit and that it is meaningful. I still sense some desperation there. Maybe it's just being frustrated.. Love.. Sigh..

To everyone else: see, it is achievable!

Ah l'amour. What a tricky business. I could really feel the passion you put into this.The warm and wonderful feeling of love, turning to the heart wrenching torture of breaking up.
I enjoyed the imagery. Like when you talk about kissing beneath the cherry blossoms.It brings such an innocence to it all.
Though, what you wrote doesn't seem very much like a poem.
Poems usually have a meter or rhyme; your's is very scattered about. Not that it distracts from the overall message. It just would have felt more complete, if the lines complemented each other.
I say you did a very good job, for this being your first "real attempt" at a long poem.
A+

This is my only poem that's of this size. I only did it for the contest xD I normally write short ones and I guess I'll post up some.

My style is freeform. It's how I write 8D Thanks for the feedback though. I'll keep it in mind next time I write a poem.

Its a really nice poem, with lots of longing and a vibe of nostalgia! It has a nice depiction of loneliness and being lost wifout that person in which you loved.

Plus, must've been really hard to write such a long poem! Really good job.
