Love is something that touches all our lives. Whether it comes from our family, friends, pets or that special someone we choose to spend our lives with. Whatever love means to you, we wanted you to share your thoughts with us in verse.

Congratulations to our winner of £25...

Alex Owens from Sowerby Bridge
Poem Featured In - Love Is In The Air
ISBN - 978-1-84418-709-6


My woman harbours crimson lips,
Holds metal at her fingertips.
She smiles and much to my regret,
It’s something I cannot forget.
Her clothes like autumn burst with colour,
Her mind bears beauty like no other.
Her kindness,
Her nature,
Is beyond compare,
Her soulful voice,
Her sultry stare.
She is my wind and pouring rain,
My vibrant joy,
My bitter pain.
My greatest line and highest note,
My funny little anecdote.
Though despite this love it is now my duty,
To release my fragile tender beauty.
Her crimson lips began to fade,
Autumn spectrum fell to shade.
Her soulful voice began to break,
Within the wrath of our love’s wake.
Although I tried with all my power, not to crush my broken flower.
I felt her leaves start to quiver,
I watched her stem begin to wither.
I fought my heart with all my mind and came to what I thought was kind.
I let my only flower go,
Into the sun so she may grow.
To laugh,
To love,
I hope and I pray
She may return one summer’s day.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
