Valentine's Day Poems
Writer's block often hits so hard that it hurts and especially now with Valentine's Day just around the corner all of the amateur closet poets are feeling that magnetic pull to write their lover (or secret love) a heartfelt Valentine's Day poem to divulge just a bit of how they feel. If you're having trouble getting what's in your heart into words then here are a few Valentine's Day poem ideas and tips to get that ink out of your pen and into some verses worthy of Shakespeare.
- Write a Valentine's Day poem about the first moment your eyes caught sight of your sweetie. You can take this anywhere from cute to scandalous depending on the intimacy of your relationship. Don't be afraid of being too mushy, if your Valentine laughs then you can rest assured in the knowledge that you have made them happy.
- If you've known your Valentine a while then why not put a short history of your relationship into verse? Be sure to include not only when you first saw them but also how your love has deepened and changed with time.
- Don't be scared of writing something too short, some of the most timeless poems are only four lines.
- Take some inspiration and ideas from the experts. Read a few of Shakespeare's sonnets or listen to some love songs to get you in the mood of Valentine's Day poem writing.
- If you're feeling extra adventurous, put your Valentine's Day poem to music and sing it for your sweetie. If this is too much for you, then you can always read it to them, or give it to them in a beautiful frame to keep forever.
Perhaps the most important thing to remember is to just be yourself, use your own words and don't be afraid to show your Valentine how you feel about them. Even if you can't find the words to express quite how you feel in a Valentine's Day poem your effort will be worth a billion boxes of chocolate to your Valentine. Go the extra mile and fill your Valentine's Day card with a Valentine's Day poem to make it an extra special surprise for your loved one!
