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

    What else
    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

    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

    love is not concerned
    with whom you pray
    or where you slept
    the night you ran away
    from home
    love is concerned
    that the beating of your heart
    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.

    Becoming Light, by Erica Jong

    Darling, you were born to bleed
    or rock.
    & the heart breaks
    either way.
