Love can be discovered every day, whether this means finding the right girl or guy to be with or just curling up with a book that lets you dream away. Let these quotes and pictures inspire you in your quest for romance.

Glowing Hunger by Ebower

Open your eyes,
even just to cry,
If you reawake,
I will know what was at stake.

I promise I will love you more,
then I did before,
These silent breathings,
Can't convey a soul seething,
With passion and regret,
For love, my heart's in debt.

Oh, to see inside that head,
Imagination and beauty just spread,
Breathe again and joy comes to life,
But staying in the dark will cut like a scythe.

Now that you're lost between reality and fiction,
I've found the answer of me amongst the questions,
Right beside you in a long lost lover's embrace,
Is where I'm meant to be, close, to caress your face.

Dreams might give you solace in the night,
Yet if there's no morning, you can't have sight,
I know the illusions fight between us,
But my love is truer then the stardust,
It's much deeper then a crystal sea,
Darling, awaken anew to you and me.


Shakespeare Love Quotes

"When I saw you, I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew."

"If music be the food of love, play on."

"Hear my soul speak. Of the very instant that I saw you, Did my heart fly at your service."

“Love sought is good, but given unsought is better "


Love is...

Love is an irresistible desire to be
irresistibly desired~Robert Frost.

Love is a canvas furnished by Nature
and embroidered by imagination~Voltaire.

Love is composed of a single soul
inhabiting two bodies~Aristotle.

Love is the exchange of two fantasies and
the contact of two skins~Nicholas Chamfort.

Love is an energy - it can neither be created
nor destroyed. It just is and always will be,
giving meaning to life and direction to goodness...
Love will never die~Bryce Courtney.

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.~St. Augustine


"I locked my heart and ate the key, To wait for someone brave, He'll dive into my soul depths there, And find it unexpectedly."~Ebower


Star-Fright by Erin Bower

If misery loves company,
I don't want to be with you,
Cause I love you more then these gray skies,
More then they wish that they were blue.

I won't poison you and your calm soul,
Instead I'll put us to a tragic demise,
Then maybe somehow your essence will stay whole,
Or at least that's the best I can expect, I relunctantly surmise.

Even if you break apart, I'm sure it'll be quite clean,
The pieces might still fit back together,
Even if they must be separately gleaned,
You'll just have to go alone in this life's weather.

If misery loves company,
I don't want to be with you,
Cause I love you more then these gray skies,
More then they wish that they were blue


True Love by Ebower

Love is reaching out when all you want to do is to crawl inside,
It's hoping when it's easier for you to be filled with doubt,
Love is being seen as imperfect so others will not feel alone,
It's giving healing words when your heart is still breaking,
Love is sacrificing your pride if it means lifting up another's self esteem,
It's serving others when you want to be the one that is served,
True love is denying your heart's desires so other's can be fulfilled.

      The photos do add beauty to the poems. The very words are set aglow from their images. This is one of the most romantic posts I have read online. True love is defined well. Blessings!

      Thank you so much for showing me how much more a poem can be than that which I have written. My favorite line of all on the page is, "I've found the answer of me amongst the questions". I hope that I can do that, say that about myself in the future, because today all I have are questions. What an awesome collection of quotes and your own work. Good choice of pictures, too. Voted awesome and up and Pinned a bunch of the pictures... Will definitely share, too.
