Love Poems

I Love You Even Though I Know


I love you even though I know
You show no love for me.
Your eyes are icy springs that feed
My hidden ecstasy.

All night I hold you in my arms
And sleep in your embrace.
All day I turn away from life
To gaze upon your face.

Alone I find within my heart
A black and raging sea,
For only you, beloved one,
Can calm my Galilee.

Nicholas, This is not one of your best poems, but it speaks of our inner pain. I feel as if I can relate, and I shall attempt to join you in expressing this darkest of emotions. Keep loving, and let us jump once more into the breach my friend.

It was beautiful. You mirror my own feelings exactly. I feel that it is only when you are completely in love with someone who doesn't feel the same eay can you truly judge such a piece.

i rated you a full mark,i don't know if this poem great or not but the only things i know is that it touched my heart because this was what i'm going through a few years ago.. he was my frst love till this day,eventhough he maybe doesn't know it.. he's dating someone else right now so the only things i can do is keep silence and watch him for afar while hoping someday someone else will love me and i love him too..
