The Romantic Poem That Will Absolutely Melt Your Heart, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


“She was born wild and curious.
A cage is no place for someone like that.

‘I play with the fire of my own truth,’
she told me,
‘I will burn for the things I love.’”

Mia Hollow


“I’ve swam in
calmer water than he
but no one else’s sea,
has ever rocked
my boat so gently.”



“You always had this little way of making the
dull and dreary bright and radiant, the
ordinary extraordinary, the mundane
magic. To you, everything was an adventure.
And in your silly, wild presence, I always felt
like every moment mattered—like all of life
should be cherished.”

Beau Taplin, “The Moment”


“often, i picture us
holding hands and watching movies
sitting on benches beneath old oak trees
hearing your laugh throughout the day
and catching you smile
when you don’t think i see

and all i can do is hope
that when you close your eyes
your mind is filled
with thoughts of me.”



“We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.”

Maya Angelou, “Touched By An Angel”


“Everything I love is soft and silent,
My cat, the morning, the end of the day,
Even the moon in its way.

Everything I love is soft and silent,
The water, the forest, the snow at play,
Even the mountain in its way.

Everything I love is soft and silent,
The sun on the sand, a rainy day,
Even the wind in its way.

Everything I love is soft and silent,
The grass, the brook, the leaves at play,
Even you in your way.”

James Cavanaugh, “Soft And Silent”


“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.”

Pablo Neruda, “One Hundred Love Sonnets: XVII”


“I wish you were
still just a
human to me,

I don’t want
to look at you
and see poetry.”



“The moon has become a dancer
at this festival of love.
This dance of light,

This sacred blessing,
This divine love,
beckons us
to a world beyond
only lovers can see
with their eyes of fiery passion.

They are the chosen ones
who have surrendered.
Once they were particles of light
now they are the radiant sun.

They have left behind
the world of deceitful games.
They are privileged lovers
who create a new world
with their eyes of fiery passion.”

Rumi, “The Privileged Lovers”


“Sometimes the most courageous
act a human can do is
to let somebody
love them.”

Michael Xavier


“love is a place
& through this place of
love move
(with brightness of peace)
all places

yes is a world
& in this world of
yes live
(skillfully curled)
all worlds.”

e.e. cummings, “love is a place”


return to each other in waves.
this is how water
