A love poem is a great way to express your affections for someone special. It is a sweet way of showing your feelings and one that takes effort, which makes it all the more special.   If you want to write a love poem but are clueless about how, this article is perfect for you.

When it comes to writing any poem at all, three things are especially important to consider: rhythm, rhyme, and imagery. When you use rhymes, you will find the poem becoming musical or rhythmic, which will in turn affect the flow of the poem. Imagery refers to a poem’s ability to create an picture in the mind of a reader.

Next, decide on a title. You can go with a simple but appealing title, as long as it sounds romantic. This would be followed by the opening of the poem which should express your love and admiration towards the special person. You can also include some interesting quotes as an opening.  Quotes can be easily found on the Internet, so if you cannot come up with one yourself, you can always see what the Internet has to offer.

Papers like those described in this article are called Process Essays or How-To Essays.  They usually contain a step by step sequence in order to build something, create something or perform a activity.  –Miss McCulla

The language used in a love poem should be simple enough to understand.  Biblical or Shakespearian language is really unnecessary unless you and your reader have a fancy for it. Nevertheless, avoid complicated ideas and jargons as they may pull your reader’s attention away from the content instead. Remember to keep your language expressive throughout the poem.

In the poem, include observations you’ve made about your intended recipient, especially those that you have not expressed before. Let him/her know how you admire what they do. And the closing should be warm and memorable.

If you are still unsure of how you to come up with love poems, you can always refer to the romantic poems written by famous poets. This way, you can get inspirations to write your very own poem. Whatever it is, keep your poem honest. Even if you are not creative in poetry, words of honesty always touch a person’s heart.
