Ah, the love poem! There is nothing else like it on earth.
To use your words in a creative and beautiful way to show someone special just how very much they mean to you is such a marvelous thing.
The poem is more than just words on paper. The poem is more than just the opinions of thoughts of the poet. Poetry is the door to the soul. A poem is a feeling inside that moves you, that inspires you, that makes you laugh or makes you cry. Love poetry is about capturing those moments and freezing them for a moment on paper so someone else can feel what you feel.
The main point of a good love poem is not to tell the other person how you feel but to make them feel it themselves. You don't want to just tell someone you love them. You want them to feel it in their hearts, in their souls, in their bones. You want them to feel your words flow through every ounce of their body. You want to make them feel what you feel and you can't achieve this goal by simply telling. You can hear a great poem. You can smell a great poem. You feel like you can reach out and touch it. That's the kind of poem you want to learn to write for your sweetie.
