Passionate Poems for Him and Her

Being in love is an all-consuming experience. It is exciting, thrilling, and a little terrifying to fall head over heels for someone. The passion between two people deeply in love burns like a wildfire. They only have eyes for each other, and everything else pales in comparison. Passion for a lover is expressed physically, but it can also be a strong emotional connection. The bond between two people madly in love with each other is not easily broken. It an intense and powerful force.

    In this poem, the speaker talks about wanting his spouse to remember him after he passes, but he doesn’t want her to mourn his loss so much that she doesn’t continue living her life.

    to feel the smoothness that changed my destiny.

    And red with a wild desire;
    I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
    Lit with a passionate fire.

    To the love of my life

    Time spent away from you brings to mind one of the many things that I miss.

    Pablo Neruda was a Chilean poet who lived from 1904-1973. He mostly wrote of politics and love. In this poem, he focuses on the latter. He writes of a passionate encounter with a woman he loves. He uses descriptive words and shares that love between two people has great moments but can also be filled with heartache. The sexual nature of his poems has caused controversy.

    Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon,
    dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light,
    what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars?
    What primal night does Man touch with his senses?

  14. 12. Satisfied

    • By Dina Johnson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

    Written for my husband shortly after we were married. I was a divorced mother with two small children when he came into my life. My children and I had been struggling hard; my husband erased that struggle. He adopted my children, and after 23 years of marriage, two grandchildren, and one on the way, he is still my rock and friend.

    When you make love to me everything seems right,
    You seem to take my hand and guide me through the night.
    You reach to take my fears and throw them to the past,
    You penetrate my soul in hopes to make it last.

    Recently a boyfriend and I broke up after almost 4 years of dating. I was devastated and for some reason the only think that would make me be able to sleep at night is if I wrote poetry about our nights we shared together. I feel like maybe by sharing this poem with other lonely women, I may enlighten them and make them smile.

    Eyes briefly meeting
    Hands sliding down my back.

    My heart is pulsing rapidly

  20. 18. Sylvia

    Sir George Etherege, from England, lived from 1635-1692. His main focus was writing plays, many of which were comedies. "Sylvia" is written about the subject of a beautiful woman who makes people believe in love, but the narrator will not allow others to love her, for she is his.

    The Nymph that undoes me, is fair and unkind;
    No less than a wonder by Nature designed.
    She's the grief of my heart, the joy of my eye;
    And the cause of a flame that never can die!
