Teen Poetry About Love

Thinking about writing a love poem but need some inspiration? You can use the following teen poems about love as inspiration for writing your own.

Can't Say

I love you so much that it makes me cry
I would do anything for you, even die
I wanna tell you these things if I could, if I may
but it's one of those things that to you I can't say
I would climb up a mountain to hear you talk
I would swim the Atlantic to watch you walk
I would love to tell you it would make my day
It's just one of the little things that to you I can't say
I wanna make you believe all the things that I feel
I wanna let you know what I feel is for real
I know for these feelings I'm gonna pay,
but unfortunately, I can't say
I look your way and almost faint
It's so hard acting like a saint
I would like to tell you, it would blow you away
Unfortunately I can't say!

Smiles for Halls

As I see you in the hallway
I know that I am blessed
to have a girl as great as you
as you are above the rest.
Our love, it makes me smile
even when I am the deepest blue.
I know that the words I say are not enough
to show you how much I love you.

Handsome Boy

Handsome boy loves me
Our homeroom period keeps our bond
We are together.

I Am in Love

I am in love; in love I say
it feels so good to be this way.
I wake up alive with bounds of energy
and smile all day at all that I see.
The man that I'm with is all that I need
though, he has his faults--this I will concede.
Our time together feels like cloud nine
and I know our love can stand the test of time.


One heart, two bodies
One us, two me's
One love, equally divided
Two hands, together as one
One life, one love.


You are my center when I begin to spin
too far out of control.
You are my hands
when I have scrapped my own falling.
You are my dream when I sleep in the night.
You are my love
and I can never have enough.


I remember the day we met like it was yesterday.
Your friends, my friends--they became our friends
and you and I became a couple.
I love our Sunday night dinners at Johnny Rocket
and our trips to the zoo.
I love dancing with you at formals
and staying awake talking to you.
I miss you when you are not near
and hate it so when we fight.
I hope that our love is strong enough
to last through all the long nights.
