9 Works of Poetry About Love and Healing

Poetry connects us and proves that we are not alone in our suffering.

Sometimes you need stories and novels to heal. But other times you crave the sharply spoken bond of shared experience—and that’s what poetry is about. There is power in a single image that strikes the soul, in knowing that someone else has shared the fear and carved a path ahead. These poetry collections are for the lost and found, for anyone who has ever needed inspiration for love and healing.


 

Poetry About Love and Healing Your Soul is a River

Your Soul is a River, by Nikita Gill

was I going to do
with all this fire
you left inside me?
I had two choices:
find someone
to share it with,
or to burn alive.

Poetry About Love and Healing Upstairs at the Garden

Upstairs in the Garden, by Robin Morgan

How shocked each lover is to hit the mark aimed for.
How they crawl toward one another between
bullets, how they weep and curse and call
each other liars, how they bleed their parts
according to the rules.

Seeds Planted in Concrete, by Bianca Sparacino

There may come a day when they fall out of
love with you. Do not let this be the day you
fall out of love with you. How long they
choose to stay will never be your decision,
but how you choose to rise is.

Poetry About Love and Healing Horses Make a Landscape More Beautiful

Horses Make a Landscape Look More Beautiful, by Alice Walker

should kill no one.

Poetry About Love and Healing Manifestation Wolverine

Manifestation Wolverine, by Ray Young Bear

no one can deny the strong force
the music we sing represents our struggle.
at first, it is a series and then it
culminates to one total.
from great distances, people arrive
and we are told to respect them
for they have retained the capacity
to cure anything.

Babies cry & music is your life.

or rock.
& the heart breaks
either way.
