Teen Love Poems:
Favorites of Young Lovers

Teen love poems express the yearning, passion and torment of teenage love. Although adults refer to teen love as "puppy love," as though it were less tumultuous than what is experienced by young people. Of course this isn't true; teen romances can be powerful and all-consuming.

Unremembered and afar
I watched you as I watched a star,
Through darkness struggling into view
And I loved you better than you knew.

~Elizabeth Akers Allen~

Terminate torment
of love unsatisfied
The greater torment
of love satisfied.

~T.S. Eliot~

It's time to make love. Douse the glim.
The fireflies twinkle and dim.
The stars lean together
Like birds of a feather
And the loin lies down with the limb.

~Conrad Aiken~

Give all to love
Obey they heart
Friends, kindred, days,
Estate, good fame

Plans, credit, and the muse
Nothing refuse.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

After all, my erstwhile dear,
My no longer cherished,
Need we say it was not love,
Now that love is perished?

~Edna St. Vincent Millay

Oh lovelorn heart, give o'er-
Cease thy vain dreams of beauty's warmth--forget
The face thou longest for.

Come to me
Not as a river willingly downward falls
To be lost in a wide ocean.
But come to me
As flood-time comes to shoreline
Filling empty bays
With a white stillness
Mating earth and sea.

~Anne Wilkinson~


You have opened up the prison gates of my womanhood.
And all the passion that was unsatisfied in me for so many
years, leaped into a wild reckless storm boundless as the sea.

~Emma Goldman~

O gentle Romeo
If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully.

~William Shakespeare~

Teen Love Poems

Nothing to do but wait.
In the stale heat
of the attic, in the rippled
full-length mirror, she posed
in velvet, in chiffon, in
her mother's useless clothes,
waiting for her breasts
to blossom and fill
the loose bodice of
her grief.

~Julie Kane~
