Three Love Poems ANYONE Can Write
Couples are always on the lookout for new and fun ways to express their love for their partner. One creative outlet is through poetry. In fact, in frequent polls at Lovingyou.com, a love poem is often cited as the number one gift a person would like to receive from their partner. To many this could be considered an arduous challenge. The good news is it doesn’t have to be. With a few tools and little bit of creativity you can be on your way to wooing your partner’s heart through their poetic heartstrings.
One of the easiest and quickest ways to write a poem is using a format called an acrostic. An acrostic poem is where every line starts with a letter of a word that is displayed vertically. For example:
In case you were in doubt that my
Love is not true, remember this
Only you can make me feel
Vulnerably, completely and
Entirely in love with
Only and always
Note that if you look at the first letter of each line, you will see “I love you” written vertically. This is an especially fun format when you use your names. For example, Jason Loves Julie, or My Love Teresa. You do not need to write sentences like in the example above. A simple word for each line is more than appropriate. To help, in the process, listed below are a few adjectives for each letter of the alphabet.
Another fun and easy poetry format is a cinquain poem. Cinqains have five lines. Each line must contain a certain element. Here is the standard format.
Line 1: Title (noun) – 1 word
Line 2: Description – 2 words
Line 3: Action – 3 words
Line 4: Feeling (phrase) – 4 words
Line 5: Title (synonym for the title) – 1 word
An example cinqain:
Need to touch
Wishing you were here
Cinqains are great when sent as a quick loving note in an email, at the end of a letter or hidden in a special place for your partner to find.
The last of our three poems is a personal favorite. There are so many ways to present this poem that every one you make will always feel individual and personal to your partner. What could this fun format be? A rebus love poemof course! You probably already know that a rebus is a message made out of pictures. When you create a rebus love poem, you make it mostly out of pictures. You can choose to draw images, use stickers or find free clip art online. You are only limited by your imagination. In fact, one creative way to write a rebus love poem is with miniature (or full size for a BIG impression) candy bars. Here is an example rebus poem.
