Girls and women from every continent have written poetry to express their feelings, to express their opinions, and even as a form of code.

First Poems for Teenage Boyfriends

In Return

What can I give you in return,
for the great gift you have given me?
I still cannot believe I am so lucky,
To be sharing the same moments with you.
The days pass by in a gold haze of laughter,
Shared, stories told, life lived and we hold each
Others hearts as precious glass charms in our hands.

What You Are

What are you made up of, snips, and snails, and puppy dogs
Follow you but only see a fragment of who you are,
what you have become to mean to me.
You are all the eagerness of a ball well caught,
Of lessons learned, and what time has taught.
You are lightening flashes of anger as injustice falls,
Quick silver color of anguish and losses.
You are the music, the rapid drumming that
Becomes my heartbeat when you and I stand
Close in the dark.

Firsts

Our time together is a series of firsts, the first
Date and how ridiculous it seems - your shyness
My shyness since we've known each other since forever,
In the end, we could not contain our laughter, and the kiss that felt
Right as rain falling on our upturn faces.
You've seen me with head colds, and without makeup
I wonder at your words - You are so beautiful and I
Push the hair off your face and kiss all three freckles
On your nose as you, gather my face in your hands.
The world dissolves behind bright colored spectacles of rose.

Element of Poems for the Boys

It may be a surprise to learn that boys actually appreciate a well thought out sentiment, as opposed to drippy, gooey, sentimentality. When you are looking for poems for teenage boyfriends find something that expresses one thing well.

Racing

To me, just to be frank here, these are cars,
Driving in circles, chasing one another,
I do not understand the subtle nuances of each
Wave of the flag, each turn's danger ratio,
I watch it though just to see your eyes rapt
Somewhat like the way you look at me,
Sometimes, only right now, I am the farthest
Thing away from your mind - but I know as you
Sometimes squeeze my hand in unfathomable excitement
I am still close to your heart...Vroom!

Big Game

There is enough food here to feed a crowd not three,
I mean it's just your brother, you and me.
Right here in the living room.
But for all the agony, and the catcalls, and the fights with
The referee, we might as well be sitting in the cold air
With a gazillion people with blue faces….from paint
And getting beer tossed on me -
Whoops - never mind - your brother just did.
This is love and Valentine's Day is coming.


The important thing about poems for teenage boyfriends is keeping it real. Boys think in a very concrete sense but that don't mean you can't imprint your heart in the wet cement of his emotions.
