When love is in the air you know it, and a great way to express your love to someone else is by writing a romantic poem for them. Poetry can capture ones heart, lift ones spirit and touch ones soul. The process of writing a romantic poem can be a thoughtful way to tell your loved one how much they mean to you.

Letter from the editor

Being a romantic at heart, and in love with an amazing woman I often write romantic poems for my baby. Infact for Valentine's day I put together a book of poetry for her as a gift. She has inspired many of the things that I have written. As I thought about what I could write for this weeks Newsletter I thought about some of my friends that often asks me how I am able to do things like that. I thought that I would give a few simple steps to follow when one wants to write their very own romantic poem.

Step 1. Read a few romantic poems yourself, this will help in a few ways. You will get an idea of how romantic poems are written, what is said and how its said. It will put you in a romantic mood, which is the right frame of mind to write.

Step 2. Choose a poem style that is simple and easy to manage, I tend to prefer a style that rhymes because it tends to help the romantic poem flow a little better.

Step 3. Grab a piece of paper, pencil, pen, or keyboard. Start writing down any romantic thoughts and words that come to mind when you think of your loved one, remember that this is a romantic poem, so you want it to be personal, sentimental and full of love. Think of features, characteristics and qualities of your loved one.

Step 4.For each of those words write down at least one specific example that relates that word to your relationship. For example, if one of your words were "companionship" you could write: "Last year I was really depressed after losing my art work in that storm, but thankfully I have you as a companion. You helped me through that difficult time." Try to hone in on those special moments that you two have shared together. By doing this you will have an easier time creating you romantic poem in a constructed sequence.

Step 5. Write your poem. Play around with words and make it flow. But remember: Put your feelings into it. Don't throw in words and verses just because they fit into your form. Don't be restricted to poem cliches. Write a poem about your better half that comes from you. Poems don't have to be fancy. They just have to be thoughtful and sweet.

I hope that this helps in some way for those who have trouble writing what they are feeling to those they love. I'm Lonewolf and it has been an honor to be your Editor for this weeks Newsletter.
