Sad Love Poems - Sad Love Poetry

Reading sad love poems can be very cathartic,
allowing you to get your emotions out, instead of bottling
them up inside.

Sad and broken heart poems help us express the anger and
frustration that the end of love can bring.

The heart was made to be broken...

- Oscar Wilde

Heart We Will Forget Him - Emily Dickinson - Sad Love Poems

In this beautiful sad love poem, neither the heart nor the mind can truly forget love.

Heart, we will forget him
You and I, tonight.
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! 'lest while you're lagging
I may remember him!


Forgotten - Algernon Swinburne

I remember the way we parted,
The day and the way we met;
You hoped we were both broken-hearted,
And knew we should both forget.

And the best and the worst of this is
That neither is most to blame,
If you have forgotten my kisses,
And I have forgotten your name.


Edna St. Vincent Millay

Where you used to be,
There is a hole in the world,
Which I find myself constantly
Walking around in the daytime,
And falling in at night.
I miss you like hell.

Autumn Song - Sarojini Naidu

Like a joy on the heart of a sorrow,
The sunset hangs on a cloud;
A golden storm of glittering sheaves,
Of fair and frail and fluttering leaves,
The wild wind blows in a cloud.

Hark to a voice that is calling
To my heart in the voice of the wind:
My heart is weary and sad and alone,
For its dreams like the fluttering leaves have gone -
And why should I stay behind?


Love is a haunting melody
That I have never mastered
And I fear I never will.

- William S Burroughs


Light - Francis Bourdillon - Sad Love Poems

The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies,
With the dying sun.
The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies,
When love is done.


In this witty poem, heartbreak comes as unexpected relief.

The Wonder - Author Unknown

My heart still hovering round about you,
I thought I could not live without you;
Now we have lived three months asunder
How I lived with you is the wonder.


sad love quotes, broken heart.
         Sad love poems - Socrates


So it's true, when all is said and done,
Grief is the price we pay for love.

- E.A. Bucchianeri


Time Does Not Bring Relief - Sad Love Poems

One of my favorite sad love poems by Edna St Vincent Millay. Time
has moved on but nothing can erase the memory of lost love.

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year's leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year's bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go - so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, 'There is no memory of him here!'
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.


Heart Of A Woman - Georgia Douglas Johnson

The heart of a woman goes forth with the dawn,
As a lone bird - softly singing - goes restlessly on
Afar over life's mountains and vales does it roam
In the wake of those echoes, the heart calls home.

The heart of a woman falls back with the night
And enters some alien cage in its plight
And tries to forget it has dreamed of the stars
While it breaks, breaks, breaks on the sheltering bars.
