Sweet Lines of Poetry for Valentine’s Day

1- We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
— Maya Angelou, Touched By An Angel

2- By night, Love, tie your heart to mine, and the two
together in their sleep will defeat the darkness.
— Pablo Neruda, Love Sonnet XXIX

3- Not easy to state the change you made.
If I’m alive now, then I was dead.
— Sylvia Plath, Love Letter

4- I carry your heart with me (I carry it in
my heart)
I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
— E.E. Cummings, 100 Selected Poems

5- I exist in two places,
here and where you are.
— Margaret Atwood, Corpse Song

6- She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
— Lord Byron, She Walks In Beauty

7- And I don’t know, don’t know, if we belong together or apart, except my soul lingers over the skin of you.
— Anne Sexton, The Complete Poems

8- I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly.”
— W.B. Yeats, He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven

Someone

Someone would hurt you
With his selfishness and deception,
And you’ll see the whole world ugly and unfair.

Someone would love you
From the bottom of his heart,
And you’ll see the whole world as lovely as never before.

You!

You seem to me
A faint ray
That would never
Shine again.
You seem to me
A smeared portrait
With stains crying
In pain.
You seem to me
A paper dusted with
Clashing lines
And no meaning.

You seem to me
A wandering lie
That would never be carried
By morning breeze.

Cannot be

It cannot be that hard to live
Cannot be that hard to love
Cannot be that hard to forgive.

But first of all

You should stimulate your
Greedy soul
To be satisfied
And your locked heart
To open
To let the charming light
Of love get through.

I Wonder!

Where promises made at night go?
I wonder why they rarely see the light!
Are they prohibited to come true,
Or light sweeps away
What dim lights of the stars draw?!

Conspiracy of Love!

The scent of your love
Through winter cold air
Flirts with curls on my cheeks,
And morning breeze conspires
To capture my free heart.
Before, I wondered
How people could be drifted away
By the stream of love
After standing erect
On the solid ground
With strong determination,
But now, I myself cut the strings
To reality,
Heedless, to drown
In the deep sea of love!
