Most of us would have had a crush on someone at least once in our lives. Teenage boys and girls would relate to this feeling and often hear or write poems about a crush to express their feelings.

Being attracted to someone and having butterflies in your tummy when they are around is a beautiful emotion. However, most people who lack the confidence to share their emotions choose to express their feelings through letters, quotes, or poems.

If you are one among them, you could try sending a poem across to your crush to express your feelings. So, read on to pick some poems for your crush and make them feel special.

Love Poems For Crush

Love poems for crush are ideal for sharing with someone special you have always adored.

1. A Hoping Crush

Your smile makes me smile,
Your laugh makes me laugh.
Your eyes are enchanting.
You make my thoughts seem daft.

Since the day I first laid eyes on you,
My feelings grew and grew.
In that first conversation, my knees clicked and clacked,
And those butterflies flipped and flapped.

And as I spill these simple rhymes,
My mind goes over time and time.
Why didn’t you ask me to dance
During that slow song of endless romance?

I hope this doesn’t seem to creepy.
Please don’t think my thoughts have flown too freely.
Just know that what I speak is true
And that I have fallen deeply for you.

―Parker C. Blair

2. 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

3. Forever Vanished Love

Everything was simple,
Everything was fine.
I knew I couldn’t have you,
And I knew why.

I tried to move on.
I dated other guys,
But then when we’d hang out,
I knew I had lied to myself.

You noticed me drifting.
You said, “Please explain,”
But I didn’t want to lose you,
So I tried to deal with the pain.

It’s hard to be with you.
It gets harder each day.
When I look into your eyes,
I feel my body floating away.

I miss the way it used to be.
You don’t feel the change.
You don’t know I really love you.
I’m sure to you; it’s just a game.

As I close my eyes tonight,
I’ll pray as I was taught to do.
I’ll pray that you realize that
I love you but I can’t have you.


4. Can You Let Me In?

I know, I might not seem your type.
But here we are, can’t you give it a try?
If truth be told, I’ve been Lost most of my life…
I’m the bird with the broken wing.
All I’m looking for is Love…
Aren’t you looking for the same thing?
I wouldn’t hurt you…
For I’ve been hurt before.
Went to battle, but I lost that war.
Now, I hope I ain’t scaring you off…
It’s just, I don’t want to get hurt no more.
Knock knock,
Can you let me in..?
I’ve been standing awhile at this door.
Only asking.
Here I am, just wondering…
Can you let me in..?
It seems, if you can’t hear me..
So I’m ask again,
Can you let me in..?
Listen, Love doesn’t ask,
it just happens.
Here we are,
So what’s happening?
Can you let me in..?
Its cold out here.
I’m freezing.
I’m stabbed and I’m bleeding…
But I know you can start my healing.
I’m feeling for you,
I’m thinking of you…
A wise man once told me,
“That’s how it starts..”
Can you let me in..?
Can’t you hear me…?
I said, your Heart.
Knock knock,
Can you let me in..?


5. 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


6. Why Do You Think I’m Beautiful

I’m not pretty enough to be a model,
I’m not smart enough to be a scholar,
So why do you think I’m beautiful?

I’m not very book smart,
I’m not very good with art,
So why do you think I’m beautiful?

I hang out with the geeks,
Everybody calls us freaks,
So why do you think I’m beautiful?

I sit by myself at lunch,
Friends? I don’t really have a bunch,
So why do you think I’m beautiful?

I’m not very pretty,
I have all this acne,
So why do you think I’m beautiful?

My eyes are way too small,
And I’m just way too tall,
So why do you think I’m beautiful?

―Kendall Philips

7. 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

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. When I See You

When I see you,
Your eyes sparkle while you say hi with the sweetest voice in the world.
When I see you,
My heart skips a beat, and I don’t know what to say.
When I see you,
Love and happiness fulfills my thoughts, and all of my troubles go away.
When I see you,
I wonder if you think about me as much as I think about you.
When I see you,
I daydream about the day we could say “I Do.”
When I see you,
All I want to say is, “I love you.”

―Roslyn Stevenson

10. 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


11. 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


12. Addicted To You

I am addicted to you
Like I would be to a game
I feel all crazy inside
When I take your name
I can’t live without you
Just like I can’t live without my phone
I want you to be by my side
So that I never feel alone
I like you


13. 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


14. 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

15. Falling For A Guy Who Doesn’t Know I Exist

I’m falling.
Falling so hard for a guy who doesn’t know I exist.
I claw for anything that will stop me.
Groping the air.
But still I fall.
No one can stop me not even him.
I tried other guys but none of them feel the way
I imagine you do.
Nothing can stop me as I descend farther into loving you.

―Kelsey Shonk

16. 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.


17. Morning To Evening

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 end up liking me too


18. 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

19. 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

Sweet And Cute Poems For Crush

You have always been noticing your crush over the years. They do not have a clue how much you like them. If you think it is time, you may share sweet and cute poems with them.

20. One And Only 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

21. I Wish

I wish I could say it,
I wish you would know.
The way you make me feel,
My heart almost seems to grow.

I wish you knew I mean it,
When I show my affection.
I wish you could see,
You’ve made a lasting impression.

I wish we could be together,
But our age forces us apart.
I hope that you know when you leave soon,
You’ll be in my heart.

I wish we had longer
Than just these few weeks more,
I wish it was forever,
That you’d be knocking on my door.

Someday you will know
What you mean to me.
My wish will come true,
And we’ll be meant to be.

―Lydia R. Terpstra

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. Wishing If

If only I can fall
Into your arms again.
If only I were small,
As small as little drops of rain.

Maybe if I were pretty,
As pretty as those other girls,
Maybe I’m just plain shitty
With nothing but fake extension curls.

He’s the beauty and I’m the beast.
Only slight twist is we don’t fall in love.

To all those other skinny girls
Of whom I don’t compare,
I’m so fat that my belly hurls,
Yet nobody really cares.

But if only I could be like them
I just might get a chance
To be with this marvelous gem
And even get a dance.

―Sara. F

24. Think Of You

Lying in a meadow,
Hiding in the grass.
Staring at the stars,
But a thought distracts me.
All I think about is you, and
The way you make me feel.

I love the way you smile,
I love the way you laugh,
I love the way your eyes glitter,
When you are standing in the light.

I love the way you we talk for hours,
I love the way you listen.
I love the way we stay on the phone for hours,
But say nothing at all.

I love the way you stand up for me,
I love the way you tease me.
I love the way you say hello,
Every morning I walk in.
Most of all I love the way you stay by me,
No matter where I am.

So next time when I am lying in a meadow,
And I’m hiding in the grass.
When I’m staring at the stars,
You will be beside me.

―Wesley Manning

25. Another Crush

I don’t want to keep feeling this way,
Because each time I come closer, you move away.
I don’t want to seem desperate or clingy at all.
I just want you to catch me each time that I fall.

I’m so tired of always being that flirt.
I want more than just that but don’t wanna get hurt.
Can’t believe I knew you so well from the start.
Now I feel pathetic when you mess with my heart.

You’re just a good day and a stormy night,
Just another crush that leads me to fright.
You’re one of those traps I can’t seem to avoid.
What are you to make of me once my heart is destroyed?

―Anastasia Moser

‘I Have A Crush On You’ Poems

Don’t fear what will happen if your crush gets to know about your secret liking for them. It’s better to express the feelings instead of carrying the load.

26. 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


27. When Will You Notice Me?

What do I have to do to get you to notice me?
Change my hair, the way I walk?
My clothes, the way I talk?
We’ve known each other for some time now,
Yet I’m still invisible to you.
My feelings run deep and how
I wish you only knew.
I see your face every time I close my eyes.
To me, you just seem so different from the other guys.
To you, I’m just a friend,
Nothing more, nothing less.
I settle for friendship in the end
Because I don’t want to make a mess.
Instead, I’ll keep my secret to myself
And take my pride back off the shelf.
Until one day you finally see
That you and I were meant to be.
I’ll wait for now but not too long
Because sooner or later I’ll be gone.
So when will you notice me?


28. Lovely Crush Of Mine

Your smile makes me smile,
Your laugh makes me laugh,
Your eyes are enchanting,
You make my thoughts seem daft.

Since the day I first laid eyes on you,
My feelings grew and grew.
In that first conversation my knees clicked and clacked,
And those butterflies flipped and flapped.
And as I spill these simple rhymes,
My mind goes over time and time,
I have a crush, a little teenage crush
I don’t know what to do, about this lovely little crush

I hope this doesn’t seem to creepy.
Please don’t think my thoughts have flown too freely.
Just know that what I speak is true,
And that I have fallen deeply for you.
Again this one is also dedicated to my crush!

―M Sagnik Das

29. Did You Know How You Make Me Feel?

Dear You,
Just so we’re clear,
there’s a reason why you’re here.
You are here so I can have
the greatest gift and I’m so glad.

But just so you know,
I want you to see
how much you truly mean to me.

Let’s see, how should I start?
First, let’s talk about the way you affected my heart.
I can’t think straight when you are near,
For I am blinded with fear.

The fear of you finding out
what I’m trying so hard to hide.
My feelings for you
are staying locked up on the inside.

Sometimes you make me want to sing,
sometimes you make me want to shout.
All I know is when you’re around,
I get butterflies.

I wonder how you feel
if anything I’m feeling is real
or is this all a dream?
Please God, put me out of my misery

Because surely I must be dreaming
because, you are a dream
of perfection in every way

The way I feel about you,
I cannot even begin to say.

Are roses always red?
And do violets have to be blue?
But the one true thing I know
is that

I’m in love with you,
not because of your looks
even though that’s partly it.
I love you for what’s inside,
and hopefully one day, you’ll be all mine!


30. Beautiful Eyes

The first day I saw him,
I didn’t know what was going to happen.
He was one among the crowd,
Not at all different!

The second day I saw him,
There was some thing different.
He was not the same person,
Turned unique all of a sudden!

The third day I saw him,
He looked into my eyes!
I stood transfixed in his gaze,
In my stomach were butterflies.

The fourth day I saw him,
He looked in my eyes again.
Silent words were exchanged
between our gaze.

The fifth day I saw him.
I went up and asked,
Have we met before somewhere?
Or are we related from the past?

He shook his head
And here’s what he said!

Yes my love, we met in our past life!
We were two souls that became one.
In life and death we were together,
And again here we’ve come!

I turned my head and walked away,
Taking a silent oath
not to look at him the next day!

The sixth day I saw him,
Those beautiful eyes looked in mine again.
It felt like we’d known each other forever
speaking of pasts and future.

That day I knew we’re meant to be.
Whether it comes true or not,
We’ll just have to wait and see!

For now all that I know,
Those beautiful eyes are in what I’m lost!
So just remember that if you don’t find me,
In his eyes, lost I will be, conversing silently!

―Nicole Jemimah Hardy

31. 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


32. Do You Know My Crush

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


33. 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

34. My Heart

You locked up my heart
Displayed for me to see like art
Taunts me, I will never get it back
You’ve held it too long for me to act
Have nothing in my chest
It’s like you’re giving me a test
Playing a game
Just for your gain
Do you like me?
Who will ever know?
Never give me time to show
That I can love you ’til the end of time
I see you everyday
You smile and I don’t know what to say
My friends think I’m crazy
but I don’t care
just want to sit and stare
I get all happy when I see you
my heart flies to the sky
but until you see
that you may love me
we will never be.


35. She Is

She is the one who stole my heart.
She is the one who gave me meaning.
She is the one I’ve fallen for.
She is the one I love,
But she is clueless.

She is the only one I think about.
She is the only one I can see myself with.
She is the reason I get out of bed every morning.
She is the one I love,
But she is clueless.

She took my heart.
She stole my soul.
She crept in my life
And made me love her.
She is the one I love,
But she is clueless.


Your crush would have turned your entire world upside down as you are relentlessly daydreaming and thinking about them. They might be what you think about these days, and sometimes you wish that this infatuation will turn into a real genuine relationship. Instead of just saying the words, add a creative touch to your feelings by revealing the truth with these short poems for a crush. For all you know, they may even reciprocate your feeling, and these poems could be the beginning of a new romantic relationship in your life.
