Love is something that touches all our lives, whether it comes from our family , friends, pets or that special someone we choose to spend our lives with. What are your experiences of love? Do you cherish a memory of a first romance? Have you struggled with the pain of heartbreak? Whatever love means to you, we wanted to hear your thoughts in verse.

Congratulations to our winner of £25 and a copy of Eternal Love...

Jennifer Day from Derby
Poem Published In: Eternal Love

A Love Is Like No Other

A love is like no other when you cannot let it go,
When the strings attached become detached but still it takes the
When the link into the realms of palms becomes a distant wing,
But the memory can hit you with the deepest strongest sting.
A love is like no other when the death becomes your life,
When the overwhelming fear seems to strangle you at night,
But the love is tinged with crispy cream and scattered orange
And the particles they spread on you like floating glitter bugs.
A love is like no other when the world has washed its hands,
When it’s crushed you into pieces as they swell inside your glands,
Yet carefully you’re sculpted from this impossible druggy mess,
Into a masterpiece by the one who never left.
A love is like no other when the depth becomes your soul,
When the peace resounds in all compounds and doesn’t take
When contentment fills the parts of you and makes you feel
Yet you feel like there is so much left to further be explored.
A love is like no other when the kidney becomes your own,
When the sacrifice becomes a want and not a need alone.
When the life support is holding the crutches to your yearn,
And you spend the days compiling how to take the sudden burn.
A love is like no other when you learn to say goodbye,
Because you know that they will sleep without that painful cry,
And even though your heart it weeps a piece of you will be,
Always scattered with the one who loved you indefinitely.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
