About This Newsletter

Poetry is often a reflection of the poets emotional state, metaphorically or symbolically written in verse. They create feelings and mood throughout their work by means of the language used, intern helping to create images and the structure of a certain phrase or stanza can help to leave a lasting impression of an idea or emotion. Despair and fear are displayed frequently through poetry.

Letter from the editor

A romantic poem may not always fit the specified structure, but it will fit the feelings category, which is most often overlooked. The time and energy you invest in your poem will be well spent. Knowing how to write romantic poems is not as difficult as it may seem, here are a few steps to help with the process:

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.

Poetry is pretty much whatever you want to call a poem. Poetry isn’t about being judged on what others think is right. It's about how you feel about what you've written, and who you have written it for. Can it be improved? Sure, but it all boils down to what you think of the work, and how it makes you feel. Just use your heart to do the writing, and add a few extra touches to have a memorable romantic work of art that will be cherished for all time.
