Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

And it took only her laugh to realize

and smooths over his back.
It slides down his sides.
It even goes down below his belt—
down into his pants.
Lucky shirt.

I’ll make you my mama’s bourbon pecan pie
we’ll give all the packages to kind-looking strangers
live in a cozy wood cabin
with a brown dog or two
and a black and brown tabby
I’m serious, UPS Man. Let’s do it.
Where do I sign?
—Alice N. Persons

in the blood in the bone over coffee
before dashing for elevators going
in opposite directions
without goodbyes.

that you make me
weak in the knees,
But to be quite upfront,

Truthful, you make my body forget
it has knees at all.

when I only saw rain.
You brought me laughter
when I only felt pain.

Creative and Introspective Love Poems

Add some mystery and depth to your crush poems with creative inspiration from these poems.

11. Because I Liked You
If here, where clover whitens
The dead man’s knoll, you pass,
And no tall flower to meet you
Starts in the trefoiled grass,
Halt by the headstone naming
The heart no longer stirred,
And say the lad that loved you
Was one that kept his word.
—A.E. Housman

12. Harlem Sweeties
Have you dug the spill
Of Sugar Hill?
Cast your gims
On this sepia thrill:
Brown sugar lassie,
Caramel treat,
Honey-gold baby
Sweet enough to eat.
Peach-skinned girlie,
Coffee and cream,
Chocolate darling
Out of a dream.
—Langston Hughes

13. Delight in Disorder
A winning wave, deserving note,
In the tempestuous petticoat–
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie
I see a wild civility–
Do more bewitch me than when art
Is too precise in every part.
—Robert Herrick

14. Far and Here
I am far from solid core,
far from the plane ride to paradise,
far from the sodium dream,
but I am here
and here
I am looking around.
—Allison Grayhurst

15. Untitled
I know a girl who is better than strawberry.
She is farther than the grand white Fujiyama.
She is purer than the water of the wholly Suraj Tal
From where the stream of Chandra flows down
The gorgeous heights of the Himalayas.
She is the spring of joy to me.
—Kabir Raichand
