I did have a relationship with a lady from Kent few years back(near Canterbury)nice town..
I loved Kent and i loved that lady..we had great times together=travelled in her motorhome to the highlands in Scotland,visited castles,gardens,bearded theory music festival in Derbyshire twice etc...
we were very much in love and life was good..but arguments set in,misunderstandings...and we drove apart...
finally we split up and said goodbye forever to eachother...it left us both with broken hearts...
i wrote several poems to her in our heydays..here is one about a visit to an English garden...
it's not poetry in the real sense but my expressions how i felt


**A visit to a flowergarden..I recall oh so well..our minds were filled with joy and laughter..
smiling faces..people filled with sun inside..the flowers displayed their fragrance and splendor..
trees..mighty and reaching towards the skies..a walk hand in hand..hands hold like an embrace..
the grass was green..and it was good..just to be..in that flowergarden..can there be anything better??
then a walk in a garden..filled with joy and intense happiness..because when nature displays its splendid carpets..
the human eye..stares in a gaze..and then we finally know..the value of a garden...
filled with a sunny spell..upon our smiling faces..did you ever visit a garden??
where your heart burst..where positive vibes were felt..in the mind and soul...
and it was good to feel a glow..a dove's plume,acorns shattered on the ground,leaves,the splendor of nature..
hidden away in the countryside..far from the bustling crowd of cities and shopping centers..
is there a place better then nature's call?and walking hand in hand..out of a garden like this..
it simply cannot be forgotten..it's branded in our minds...the sheer positivity of it..
overshadows anything else..**

Most poems/poetry or anything expressive are cause by a broken heart but I have a question for you, tiger, do you agree with the saying 'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all'?

I agree with that quote,Penguinlord..i went through a few broken heart times...
there is a song which says broken hearts cannot be mended..could be..
in my case i think that what has been,even how hurtful it seems...it's always the good things we should remember,but..it's ofen difficult to forget the sad part of a relationship..if we lose a gem of a woman,then we should picture ourself in her heart at the height of pleasure,understanding,loyalty and happiness..a lost love is sometimes a contrast of what we expected,so in that aspect i would agree on the sentence==it's better to have loved then nothing at all...if we can focus on total companionship and trust,the question of a broken heart should not even arise,but neverthless we live in a difficult world..and the wounds of a relationship lost can be difficult to heal...we should not let it come to the point of a break up..i might write a poem about it...we'll see..

was my passion?lost in your eyes,arms and lips?
no...i am not alone or lonely...because a memory marks your presence
i wonder how you are,do you still think about that day?
when we walked arms clinged together like a married couple of many years
the folks on that avenue did never feel the emotions we felt that day
that town stole my heart..and even you,my lover
but later that day when we made love...and we felt our togetherness...
like an everlasting burning force,the candle of life..
and all my fears melted away..precious memories linger on deep in my heart
i recall your smiles and the teeth that went with it
if i could ever frame a pic?my love would treasure the hallways of your heart
because of a gentle touch,a cuddle,a nice word..and the heat and passion of the night
it will never wipe away that extreme joy and intense pleasure
thes moments healed my deepest fears and incertitudes
like a sun which burns a wholeday..and a sunset filled with colours,memories..
the future is a mystery,but a past looked upon that way is a vivid memory
if hearts melt toghther into 1..nobody can feel that strenght and force
because it belongs to the gentle touch of lovers
just to think about that makes my world worthwhile living
sheer togetherness is printed in my soul like a tattoo is for life
tattoos are forever...so are good memories...and true love

For me, I'm only 50/50 on the quote. My first love was the one who showed me how to express my artistic/creative side more. They were my muse, I gave my whole heart to that person, but since we were just kids and after years the relationship wasn't toxic but it was tiring. There were times I wished I never met that person, sometimes I don't. I think I've written poems about him, but never posted it (probably somewhere saved in my computer ahaha).

I had this one toxic relationship, I would be so glad to forget. There's one poetry about that piece of shit in this thread ahaha

Here's an old poem I have that I never posted about love:

Love

Love was my greatest passion
It gave me the creativity I had locked inside me
It bloomed in a room full of cement
Yet...
Love is my tragedy
It broke me into pieces I tried to kept together
Engulfed me in darkness

Maybe it was darkness I manage to see your light

An artist with no muse
Lost in a blank canvas
Vibrant colors to bring life, but everything seems black and white
What kind of an artist am I
With nothing to show

I'm no artist
Talent wasted on me
I've been broken too many times
Trying to put myself together again
Yet
I always break into more tiny pieces

Who am I
to accept what they see in me
Where all I see is garbage
Failure
Pathetic

After years of idle thoughts
Once the brush was my voice
Now it has become mute
Shouting only creates nonsense

What have I done to myself

lyrics: Antidote - Faith Marie

Finding refuge in my own lies
How are you I'm doing alright
Small talk is a great disguise
Just let me be just let me be
Empty thoughts start to crowd my mind
Am I only living to survive?
Shake it off but I've lost the drive
Just let me be just let me
Just let me be okay

Intoxicated Love

Just like alcohol, the first never taste good
Eventually you see why everyone drinks it
It draws you back everytime
Even after that awful hang over

Soon it feels good drinking till you pass out
Enjoying every sip
Doing stupid things just for the fun of it
but...
not all of it is good
Soon, you get too addicted
You look for it
Crave for it
The once joyful days turn into self-pity and numbness

Your love intoxicated me
Being sober felt so wrong
It felt like I was cheating on you
Years of torment
Holding onto you
We both were destructive
Together we caused chaos

I broke free
Barely alive
Bones broken
Life torn into pieces
Bleeding and craving your very touch
I glance back to the life we've broken

I ran away
Crying knowing I've betrayed you
I kept running away from you
Looking out for me
and looking out for you without me
Together we would have burned the world

I'm sorry, Goodbye.

Inescapable Abyss

The very light above me was nothing but an illusion I've made to fool myself
Thinking that I was free from my torments
Embracing the light being cast upon me
Basking in the joy I've rarely felt and...
Believing everything was going to be okay

I keep getting dragged back in
Fighting to leave
Struggling for that glimpse of shimmer
and it was all for nothing

I am once again back
Deeper than ever
Let the darkness consume me
Let me be with my demons
Slipping further and further away from myself
Becoming an empty husk of nothing

A Mother's Love

Voices all around me telling me to love her
Unconditionally
Be a forgiving good little daughter
Follow my mother's wishes without question

Is a mother's love that good?
All I've felt was betrayal and pain
Over and over again
I'm no fool to blind myself

Not all mother's deserve to be a mother
Not all mother's know how to be a mother
Not all mother's love their offspring
Not all mother's are a gem to society
