Longing Poems

Popular Longing Poems
Monday in November
by Nathaniel Suarez

Days like today when I yearn for you most,
I don't want you anymore; I need you.
I long for your hands to lift me up,
to wipe my tears even though I can do it myself.
To remind me you're here to fight alongside me
To remind me that if I fall again, you'll pick me up
To make me laugh and smile
To soothe the lump that forms in my throat when I cry,
To tell me how much you love me
Remind me how much you're proud of me; proud of us.

Thousand Wishes
by Melina Marie

I wanna make you smile and laugh,
I wanna dance with you.
I wanna hold your hand at day,
at night I wanna too.

I wanna be the first you kiss,
I wanna be your love.
As much I wanna be your last:
I wanna be enough.

The Sailboat
by Natalie Harmon

The little girl that sits on top of the sand hill
Waiting for the sailboat
Funny because she knows nothing about a sail boat

With no shoes and knots in her hair
She blames herself for the sailboat not coming

So she overcompensates this part of her life with bad jokes
But she knows that the sailboat will eventually be there

Une Terrasse Fleurie Pour Notre Anniversaire
by Hébert Logerie

Oh! Non. Je n'attendrai pas que tu sois malade en phase terminale
Ou mourir pour t'envoyer des bouquets de fleurs tropicales
Aujourd'hui, c'est bien l'heure de se tenir au sommet de l’échelon
Pour montrer mon amour au milieu du brouhaha des averses sans saison.

Tu es profondément aimée, chère et tendre princesse décorée
Tu es toujours dans mon esprit, dans mon spleen, mon cœur et mon âme
Tu es toujours au sommet du sondage impartial, sur mes épaules
Et je t'aime d’une passion indélébile puisque tu es ma bien-aimée.

Avocado Lady
by Leon Xia Xia

There she goes running down the street
The Avocado lady has no one to see
She was born with no empathy
She almost looks like a human being

There she comes running down the street
The Avocado lady sure has no one to see
But Sometimes she really wonders why
Ooh should she try?

second love
by Miki Vermeulen

It’s not even about missing you.
It’s about having to remember
how fast and sudden you switched up,
and how horrible it made me feel.

One day you flipped,
you were sad and miserable,
you didn’t even want to be around me.
I don’t know what I did because you never told me.
You left me so confused and alone

Tracing Crumbs
by Aspen M

Electric

Bolts across spine, down arms

Shocks wrists

Tingles palms

Tickles upon my neck, shivers my thighs
