Love Poems For Crush

Share these love poems of adoration and admiration with a crush you have always kept close in your heart.

1. My Crush

Sitting alone in this lonely hallway
As you can see there’s nothing left
Since I’m the only one here
I can finally tell myself
I miss you and love you
But everyone laughs I don’t understand why I must move on
All this frustration wont go away
All this anger wont make it better
I want to hit the walls and make the glass shatter
Maybe you’ll run and rescue me this time

Now don’t get carried away our I’ll fall into heavy waves
Look I miss you to death
I need time to gather myself

I lay at night
The ceiling stands white
Everyone already dreaming
I refuse to close my eyes till you come into my life.
My crush, my crush.

―Ice Johnson

2. Whenever I See You

When I see you
In my face, I go red
When you look at me
I can’t even take a step ahead
When I hear your voice
I begin to soar and fly
When you hug me
I see only fuzzy with my eyes
You seem to really have
Some power over me
Or maybe it’s just that
I think you’re a hottie


3. My Secret Crush

I think about you everyday
I plan out what to say
You have no idea, you have no clue
Just how much I think about you
I try not to stare, I try not to hide
I try not to show that I have always lied
If I had told you before
Perhaps you might not be the same
I want to tell you how I feel
But the voices inside makes me hush
So I keep it down inside my heart
Hoping that nothing falls apart
Where ever you go, my heart will follow
But sadly, ever, only I will know
I hope my heart will never be broken
All because of my love unspoken

―Sania Harris

4. From My Heart

A million stars up in the sky.
One shines brighter – I can’t deny.
A love so precious, a love so true,
a love that comes from me to you.
The angels sing when you are near.
Within your arms I have nothing to fear.
You always know just what to say.
Just talking to you makes my day.
I love you, honey, with all of my heart.
Together, forever, and never to part.
— Mrs. Creeves

5. My True Love Hath My Heart

My true-love hath my heart and I have his,
By just exchange one for the other given:
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
There never was a bargain better driven.
His heart in me keeps me and him in one;
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides:
He loves my heart, for once it was his own;
I cherish his because in me it bides.
His heart his wound received from my sight;
My heart was wounded with his wounded heart;
For as from me on him his hurt did light,
So still, methought, in me his hurt did smart:
Both equal hurt, in this change sought our bliss,
My true love hath my heart and I have his.

— Sir Philip Sidney

6. I Love You For What You Are

I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be.

I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals. I pray for your desires that they may be great rather than for your satisfactions, which may be so hazardously little.

A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall. The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud wherein the pangs and ecstasies of desire are working for a larger and finer growth.

Not always shall you be what you are now.

You are going forward toward something great. I am on the way with you and therefore I love you.

— Carl Sandberg

7. I Wanna Be Yours…

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
If you like your coffee hot
let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your raincoat
for those frequent rainy days
I wanna be your dreamboat
when you want to sail away
Let me be your teddy bear
take me with you anywhere
I don’t care
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out
I wanna be the electric heater
you’ll get cold without
I wanna be your setting lotion
hold your hair in deep devotion
Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
that’s how deep is my devotion

— John Cooper Clarke

Short Crush Poems

Words are more powerful than action. Instead of approaching directly, pick a short crush poem and share your feelings in style.

8. Shall I Tell You

My head is spinning,
My heart is racing
Should I tell you, do I say?
Whenever I see you, my thoughts begin to stray
You’re more to me than you know
I just hope that my love for you will show.


9. Dear Crush

I am slightly overwhelmed
A bit nervous and jittery
I am acting very cautious
I’m filled with anxiety
My heart has compelled me
To do something I’m about to
Which is to confess that
I have a crush on you


10. Every time You Come Closer

Every time we are near each other
I feel a hummingbird in my chest
moving rapidly
I know we are very good friends
And I don’t want to ruin anything
This my heart out on a silver platter
I have a crush on you


11. I Like You

I’m not sure if you’ve heard or noticed lately
This may not be new news
But I sort of like you
I like it when you laugh, and you scrunch up your nose
I like when you sleep, how you wiggle your toes
I like your eyes, they seem always to sparkle
I like your lips too
I like listening to you talk
I just like being around you
You’re warm and kind
And you make my heart smile
I hope that you’ll stick around for a really long while


12. My Library Boy

I’m waiting for you, day by day.
In the library, I swear I’ll stay,
Waiting for your unforgettable smile,
To see you, even just for a while.
Following you where you go,
Although I’m tired and being slow.
You’re the only one who can give me joy,
You’re my greatest dream, My Library Boy!

―Michaela Tatualla

13. Looking Into Your Eyes

I look into your eyes, I see a dream from before.
A dream of a boy with eyes of cornflower blue and hair as yellow as the sun.
Your smile lights up my world, your laugh is the music of my heart.
You make me laugh like a funny home video.
But my dream turns to nightmare, one of guilt and shame
As I suddenly remember the deafening truth from before. Just to let you know before you go,
I like you. I like you a lot.


14. Morning To Evening

I think about you

I think about you in the morning
Hoping that you, find me charming
I think about you in the afternoon
Hoping that I, can meet you soon
I think about you in the evening
Hoping that I, can see you smiling
I think about you in the middle of the night
Hoping that you, understand my plight
I just can’t stop thinking about you
I just hope one day, you think of me, too


15. Night Thoughts

OH, unhappy stars! your fate I mourn,
Ye by whom the sea-toss’d sailor’s lighted,
Who with radiant beams the heav’ns adorn,
But by gods and men are unrequited:
For ye love not,–ne’er have learnt to love!
Ceaselessly in endless dance ye move,
In the spacious sky your charms displaying,
What far travels ye have hasten’d through,
Since, within my loved one’s arms delaying,
I’ve forgotten you and midnight too!

―Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

16. Love

And in Life’s noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart’s Self-solace and soliloquy.
You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro’ all my Being, thro’ my pulse’s beat ;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.
And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love

―Samuel Taylor Coleridge

17. True Love

When I say I love you, please believe it’s true.
When I say forever, know I’ll never leave you.
When I say goodbye, promise me you won’t cry,
Because the day I’ll be saying that will be the day I die.

— Paul Smith

18. Idle Dreams

In idle dreams of long ago,
I imagined my true love;
A perfect match, a soulmate,
An angel from above.

Now you’re here, and now I know
Our love will stay and thrive and grow.

-Joanna Fuchs, poemsource.com

19. Soothing Love

Your touch, like a soothing balm,
Brings calm to my soul,
like a peaceful psalm,
Your love, like a symphony of joy,
Fills my heart, forever to enjoy.

— Unknown

20. For Him

it won’t
be love at
first sight when
we meet it’ll be love
at first remembrance
‘cause i’ve recognized you
in my mother’s eyes when she tells me,
marry the type of man you’d want to raise your son to be like.

— Rupi Kaur

21. One And Only Crush

One and only crush, sweet paragraph for crush

Do you know every night I dream of you…
Visions of your hands upon mine.
Have you any idea how much I think of you…
So much it has become a pastime.

Are you aware of how often I drown…
Inside your perfect brown eyes.
My mind is so crowded with reflections of you…
For other thoughts I do not have the time.
Haven’t you noticed how we belong together…
Just the notion is too sublime!
Endlessly I want to feel your touch…
And to be always on your mind.

If we were never to be together…
That would be a terrible crime.
Don’t you know that you mean everything to me…
I want to give you my heart for all time.
You are the only one in this world I want…
To be forever and always mine.
Give me a chance at romance…
And I promise you’ll never ask why!
From the topic its easy to understand to whom I dedicate this poem again…One and only crush!

―M Sagnik Das

22. My First Crush

In the sea of faces I saw a face
All in a haze, so filmy
Nothing did I see clearly
But a pair of love lit eyes
Riveted on me
My heart skipped a beat
Did my face grow pale?
Or got coloured by a blush?
I lowered my eyes
And looked away

But I saw him advancing
Coming straight to me

My heart began to race
My breath got hitched
My lips went dry and parched
I didn’t hear what he asked
Words got stuck in my throat
When they came
They came out broken and raspy
I felt as if struck
By congenital paralysis
Unable to move my facial muscles
Either to utter a word
Or curve my lips into a smile!

Felt butterflies in my stomach
A tremor took over my hands and legs
Beads of sweat appeared on my brow
My mind went blank
The world came to a sudden halt
Forgot where I was
I got frozen in time

This is how I felt
When I had my first crush!

Not knowing the futility of adolescent yearning
For long, I juggled with his unspoken words
“I L….O….V…..E you!

―Valsa George

23. I wish I could remember that first day

I wish I could remember that first day,
First hour, first moment of your meeting me,
If bright or dim the season, it might be
Summer or Winter for aught I can say;
So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom yet for many a May.
If only I could recollect it, such
A day of days! I let it come and go
As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could recall that touch,
First touch of hand in hand – Did one but know!

— Christina Rossetti

24. Love Comes Quietly

Love comes quietly,
finally, drops
about me, on me,
in the old ways.
What did I know
thinking myself
able to go
alone all the way.

— Robert Creeley

25. Love Is…

Love is…
Love is feeling cold in the back of vans
Love is a fanclub with only two fans
Love is walking holding paint stained hands
Love is.
Love is fish and chips on winter nights
Love is blankets full of strange delights
Love is when you don’t put out the light
Love is
Love is the presents in Christmas shops
Love is when you’re feeling Top of the Pops
Love is what happens when the music stops
Love is
Love is white panties lying all forlorn
Love is pink nightdresses still slightly warm
Love is when you have to leave at dawn
Love is
Love is you and love is me
Love is prison and love is free
Love’s what’s there when you are away from me
Love is…

— Adrian Henri

26. I carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

— E. E. Cummings

27. I Like You

I like the way you hold my hand
I like when you kiss my forehead
I like it when you smile
I like your passion
I like your laugh
I like your face looks when you’re concerned or upset
I like how much you care
I like your independence
I like your curiosity
Hell, I like your hair
I’m hard up for reasons
Not to like you
You’re my favorite place to be
There’s no other like you


28. Why I Like You

What I like about you the most
Is the way you walk
The way you smile
When you begin to talk
What I admire about you a lot
Is the way you dress
Seeing the way you tuck your hair
Is a sight of pure happiness
There seems to be nothing
That I don’t like about you
Asking you out on a date
Had become long overdue


29. Do You Know My Crush

Roses are red, crush poem

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Today’s headline in my brain reads
“I really like you”
It’s out there, it’s done
I just can’t mistake it
I tried really hard, but I can’t seem to fake it
So instead I’ll scream,
From rooftops and bridges
I like you so much I just have to admit it
I think of your face at all hours of the day
And really and truly
If I had it my way
You and I would run away forever together
Life would be simple and I’d feel light as a feather


30. A Time To Give It A Shot

Your beautiful eyes,
Your warming smile,
Your wonderful country accent
Makes me smile.

I’m shy to talk to you.
Foolish, I don’t know why.
What to be scared of?
You remind me of stars in the sky.
Beautiful and bright,
You’re a joyful sight.

I don’t know you well
But wish to know you more.
Maybe go on a date
Or see a show, either one,
I’ll just be happy to know
That we gave it a shot
And didn’t just let it go.

―Tyler Holley

31. To lose thee, sweeter than to gain

To lose thee — sweeter than to gain
All other hearts I knew.
’Tis true the drought is destitute,
But then, I had the dew!
The Caspian has its realms of sand,
Its other realm of sea.
Without the sterile perquisite,
No Caspian could be.

— Emily Dickinson

32. She Walks In Beauty

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

— Lord Byron, poetryfoundation.org

33. Heart to Heart

It’s neither red
nor sweet.
It doesn’t melt
or turn over,
break or harden,
so it can’t feel

It doesn’t have
a tip to spin on,
it isn’t even
just a thick clutch
of muscle,
mute. Still,
I feel it inside
its cage sounding
a dull tattoo:
I want, I want —

but I can’t open it:
there’s no key.
I can’t wear it
on my sleeve,
or tell you from
the bottom of it
how I feel. Here,
it’s all yours, now—
but you’ll have
to take me,

— Rita Dove

34. Yours

I am yours as the summer air at evening is
Possessed by the scent of linden blossoms,

As the snowcap gleams with light
Lent it by the brimming moon.

Without you I’d be an unleafed tree
Blasted in a bleakness with no Spring.

Your love is the weather of my being.
What is an island without the sea?

— Daniel Hoffman

35. Poem for My Love

How do we come to be here next to each other
in the night
Where are the stars that show us to our love
Outside the leaves flame usual in darkness
and the rain
falls cool and blessed on the holy flesh
the black men waiting on the corner for
a womanly mirage
I am amazed by peace
It is this possibility of you
and breathing in the quiet air

— June Jordan
