I love the way I can talk to you
And say what's on my mind
I never have to look away
Or keep a thing inside

Tears fill my eyes when you're not around
Or when you just don't care
But I know in my heart you will do what's right
For me, you will always dare

Material things will never matter
As long as I have you
You make every day that passes
So much easier to get through

My worries disappear when you're around
No thoughts of pain or doubt
I feel your love when you hold me close
And kiss me if I pout

I don't care what they are talking about
All I care for is you
I'll jump off a building to show you my love
If that's what I have to do

I love you for everything that you are
Not what you promise to be
I know you can't see why or how
You're the most important thing to me
My first bit of poetry. I tried not to make it too corny but I don't think I succeeded. Please tell me what you think and any tips on how to improve would be greatly appreciated. Inspired by my boyfriend saying "I love the way..." about five times during a GCSE English oral test on a poem called Sonnet 130.

I think im gonna cry :cries: Thats how I felt about my boyfriend (he broke up with me) and I still feel like that about my ex-boyfriend. I just dont have the guts to tell him, because im affraid to lose him as a friend. I was always told that I don't know what loe feels like, but I think I do.

:sniff: I love it, its beautiful. Keep up the good work.
If you don't mind I would love to print it off so I can show all my friends who are on and not on DeviantART.

honestly... what i think is, Love Is What YOU Make Of It. And Your Ex-Boyfriend may have a different Definition of love. I'm Sure There IS Someone Out There That Thinks the same thing about love as you.

MagicalSunrise1984 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010
It is very beautiful.
The question is not if it is corny but if it is real.
Sometimes, as the emotions felt are so refined, such is the poetry - seems to me this is just the case (it really does come from the heart) - so, maybe it is corny - so what?
libstick Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010
Awh! It's sooo cute! >3< It's not corny don't worry! =D Love it :heart:
