Poems About Being In Love
I Thought I Must Give Up on Life

Falling in Love Poems Part 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5


I thought I must give up on life

And turn into a stone;

The desert wind quite suited me:

No heart, no mind--just bone.


I thought it would be dumb to try

To want something again;

Wanting turns to need, and then

Transmogrifies to pain.

I laughed at people still in love

Who trusted someone's word;

To make my happiness depend

On faith seemed quite absurd.


I lay alone and wonder-struck,

Sleepless in my bed,

Still numb, still dumb, still ice, ice cold,

Not knowing I was dead.


And then you came and shone upon

My meadow full of snow,

And saw the flowers only love

Could recognize and grow;

And made me feel so beautiful

I shed my cold, cold skin,

And opened up my heart to you,

And, fearful, let you in.


And now, my dear, I am in love,

With all that I've been through.

I know the worst of all the world,

And I believe in you.
