You do not have to be William Shakespeare to write a love poem for getting an ex-girlfriend back. All you have to do is invest a little time figuring out how you really feel about her, and then write it down on a piece of paper. Show her that you do have a romantic side . . . and she may just come running back to you.
Now, putting yourself out there might mean you get hurt or embarrassed in the process. But if you do not risk it, and learn to write a love poem, and she moves on to someone else, you will regret what-might-have-been for the rest of your life. What if she is the one, and you let her get away? What if she is the one, and all you needed to do to get her back was to write her a simple love poem?Wouldn’t it have been worth the effort?
Even if you think you can’t write a love poem, you should learn. It really is easy, especially if you are in love. All you have to do is search your feelings at a gut level and write down what you feel. Love is easy that way. It swells from your heart and wants to be heard. Sure, “sunshine and roses” is a bit of a trite phrase. If you need some help with the romantic words, get yourself a thesaurus and use it! Find the words to say exactly what you want to say.
Do not expect a poem to flow from you with perfect rhythm and sentiment. Find yourself a quiet place, clear your mind, and just start writing. Free writing, as this is called, is quite effective at freeing you to write down on paper feelings and thoughts that are truly honest and personal. And honesty is the critical ingredient in the poem that will attract your lady’s heart once again.
Do not let what you “always assumed about poetry” become an obstacle. Poems do not have to rhyme. They do not have to be long. But they do have to be honest about your feelings and convey them sincerely. You are learning to romance, and romance is a dying art. Honesty, romance, and poetry, blended together, is the magic potion. It is a real possibility that your ex will fall back in love with you with just one poem. She will recognize how difficult it was for you to capture truly honest feelings, write them down, and then allow yourself to be vulnerable by expressing them. Her own love will be rekindled and she will give the two of you another chance. And if it doesn’t, at the very least, you will leave a positive, meaningful impression and give you the best chance of reconciling with her sometime in the future.
