Short Poems

1. “Fading Memories”
Our love was once a burning flame,
Igniting passion with each embrace,
But time has passed and things have changed,
And now only memories remain.

2. “Broken Promises”
You whispered sweet nothings in my ear,
Promising love that would never disappear,
But your words were just empty lies,
Leaving me alone with tears in my eyes.

3. “Silent Goodbye”
The end came quietly, without a sound,
No tears shed, no goodbyes abound,
Just a silent parting of ways,
Leaving me lost in a foggy haze.

4. “Unrequited Love”
My heart beats for you, but you don’t feel the same,
Leaving me with a soul filled with pain,
Unrequited love is a bitter pill to swallow,
Leaving me wishing for a brighter tomorrow.

Fading Memories

Softly, gently, tenderly,
The bittersweet memories of you,
Fade away into the distance,
Like a morning mist that’s due.

I hold on to our precious moments,
As they slip away from view,
And as I reach out to touch them,
I realize they’re no longer true.

For time has a way of erasing,
What once burned so bright and pure,
And all that’s left are the echoes,
Of a love that could not endure.

So I’ll lay these memories to rest,
And bid them a fond adieu,
Hoping that one day I’ll wake up,
And find that I’m over you.

Unrequited Love

My love for you is like a flame,
That burns despite the rain,
Unquenched by any obstacle,
Or the chill of unrequited pain.

I long to hold you in my arms,
And whisper secrets in your ear,
But every time I try to speak,
My voice gets lost in fear.

I know that I am just a shadow,
In the landscape of your heart,
Forgotten in the daylight,
But haunting in the dark.

And yet, I cannot help but love you still,
Though it causes me such strife,
For even if you never feel the same,
You’ll always be the light of my life.

Long Poems

A Lost Love’s Lament

She was my everything, my heart’s desire,
The one I thought would never tire
Of my love and devotion, my all.
But alas, fate intervened and made us fall.

We laughed and danced under the moon,
Whispered sweet nothings until noon.
Promised each other a love so true,
That even time couldn’t undo.

But life is unpredictable, as we know,
Our love was tested, put on hold.
Distance, time and circumstance,
Made it difficult to take a chance.

We drifted apart, slowly but surely,
Went our separate ways, both so lonely.
Years passed by, and I thought I’d healed,
But memories of her, still made me feel.

Feel the pain of a love that’s lost,
The ghost of a heart that broke and crossed,
The line between love and despair,
A heart that’s shattered, beyond repair.

She was my hope, my shining light,
But now she’s gone, out of sight.
I should have fought, I should have tried,
Maybe then, she’d still be at my side.

But now I’m left with a heart that’s cold,
An empty vessel, that can’t be controlled.
I wish I could turn back time,
To the days when she was mine.

But alas, time moves on, and so must I,
Leave behind the pain, say goodbye.
To a love that’s lost, but not forgotten,
A memory that I’ll keep, until I’m rotten.

The Ghosts of Lost Loves

I walk alone in the dead of night,
Thinking of loves I’ve lost in sight.
The ghosts of memories come alive,
Haunting me as I strive to survive.

The first love I lost was a burning flame,
Passionate and intense, she was my aim.
We were young and full of life,
But distance killed our love with a knife.

Then there was the one I adored,
She was my everything, my world restored.
We laughed and cried, dreamt of a life,
But fate played a cruel trick and cut us like a knife.

The third love was a true surprise,
Someone who caught me off-guard and opened my eyes.
We took things slow, built a foundation,
But misunderstandings led to our separation.

Fourth love was a whirlwind affair,
We loved too hard, too fast, too much to bear.
We were consumed by the flames we lit,
But we burned out as fast as we were lit.

Fifth love was a slow burn,
We took our time, let our love turn.
We built something strong, something real,
But distance and time made our love surreal.

Sixth love was a perfect match,
We complemented each other’s catch.
We were in sync, we were on fire,
But life’s challenges made our love expire.

Seventh love was a mystery,
Our paths crossed in ways that were eerie.
We came together, we fell apart,
And left each other with a heavy heart.

Eighth love was a lesson learned,
We took each other for granted, we were burned.
Our egos clashed, our love was lost,
And what we had was just the cost.

Ninth love was a broken dream,
A love that was never meant to be, it seemed.
We tried to make it work, with passion and will,
But fate had other plans, and we had to chill.

Tenth love was a peaceful end,
We knew it was time to make amends.
We saw the love we had once shared,
But we were just not meant to be paired.

Now I walk alone, haunted by past loves,
The memories of loss, the hurt and the shoves.
But I know that love will come my way,
And I’ll build a love that’s meant to stay.
