How To Write The Perfect Love Poem

It is easy to express your true feelings and thoughts in free-verse rather than rhyme. You don't need to be a Shelley or Shakespeare to write a great poem. All it takes is sincerity, a little effort and a loving feeling.


Write a page of standard prose, as fast as you can, about how you felt the first time you saw your loved one, how you felt the first time you knew you were in love, and how you feel right now about being together. These three moments in time will create the structure of your poem.
Replace any weak verbs with stronger verbs and any pronouns with proper nouns. Words depicting taste, touch, sight, smell and sound work really well for love poems.

Reread your passage and pick a central metaphor to tie the three moments together. Choosing a metaphor is the most challenging part, but don't hesitate to be wild with it. An opening flower is a tried and true metaphor for love, but a slow-motion explosion in reverse or a baby's first step might work even better.

Rewrite your passage using the metaphor to describe the three moments.
Read your page out loud, changing anything that sounds off to you. Make notations where you feel there's even the slightest pause in the flow of writing.

Write the poem on paper, putting a line break where you made the notations.

Type the poem neatly or write it in your best handwriting. Consider framing your poem. Your loved one may want to keep the poem as a memento!

Read the poem out loud to the person you love, or wrap it in special wrap, and present it as a gift for her or him to open when alone.


You're not trying to write the 'Greatest Poem Ever'. Your poem is for the one you cherish the most. What matters is that it's personal and sensuous.

Sit in a quiet room, and think about your 'love', how you feel when you are together, and apart. Think about what you miss most when you do not see each other, and how you feel when you again see each other. As you ponder this, write your thoughts and feelings. Poetry should come from the heart, and your heart and your thoughts will create a love poem based on you and only yours feelings.

There's no need to be intimidated by complex rhyme schemes. Remember, most contemporary poetry doesn't rhyme. Former Poets Laureate Robert Pinsky and Louise Gluck and current Poet Laureate Ted Kooser all write poetry that does not rhyme.

The best writing advice is simple: omit needless words. One strong verb steamrolls any three weak ones.

Poetry and almost all artful prose is about how the words reveal your feelings. Take time when you read your writing out loud to yourself, and see if you feel what your words are saying. If they stir up emotion within you, be assured they will do the same for the person you are writing it for.

Make it personal. Don't fill it with cliches but find something unique or special in your relationship and write about that. Your poem should be a reflection of the love you both share.
One useful tip for any kind of poem is to write it twice: first with the heart, then with your brain. Don't forget to express exactly what you want, but try not to sound cheesy.

11 Cell Phone Safety Tips to Minimize Radiation Exposure

"The voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones... [is] the largest human biological experiment ever."
~ Professor Leif Salford, Head of Research at Lund University, Sweden

The BIG Question! Are we on the verge of a health crisis of epidemic proportions due to lack of cell phone protection?

Scientists and Doctors agree that this emerging time of wireless technology is wreaking havoc on our health as a nation and a world. An estimated 30-50,000 cases annually worldwide, of brain and eye cancer are being attributed to cell phone use. WiFi is now also under scrutiny. Dr. George Carlo, former chief scientist of the cell phone industry's $28 million safety research project, predicts 500,000 new cases of brain and eye cancer each year by 2010 attributable to cell phone use.

What are the risks involved with wireless technologies?
You, your family, children and pets are all at significant risk. Children are of particularly high risk due to their thin and still forming skulls and nervous systems.

"Brain Tumors Now Cause More Deaths Among Children than Any Other Forms of Cancer." According to a Sydney TV News Report. You can also watch a special video report, "The Invisible Dangers of EMF Radiation".

Recent studies reveal that cell phone use and WiFi technology are linked to health problems. Invisible radiation from cell phones, microwaves, computers, cordless phones, electrical wiring in homes and office buildings and more are all contributors to health problems such as: neck and shoulder pain, headaches, brain tumors, high blood pressure, cancer, brain and eye tumors, Alzheimer's, and more.

It can take years for many of these dis-eases to occur due to the latency period, however the effects are cumulative. It is better to be safe than sorry. This biological experiment has gone too far and it's up to you and me to take responsibility for our own health and the wellbeing of our family members.

11 Cell Phone Protection Tips to Minimize Radiation Exposure:

1. Minimize cell phone use by keeping calls short and only using for essential calls. Just 2 minutes on a cell phone call has been shown to alter the natural electrical activity of the brain for up to an hour.

2. Use a speaker on your cell phone if possible. Keeping the phone away from the body and head helps minimize exposure to radiation.

3. Limit use of cell phones by children to emergency only. Due to their thin skull and developing body's, radiation can penetrate much more deeply.

4. Avoid wired headsets. Regular wired headsets have been shown to act as an antenna, attracting additional EMFs (Electro-Magnetic Fields) or radiation and concentrating it in the ear canal.

5. Keep your cell phone out of your pocket and off your belt when on or in use. Body tissue in the lower body area absorbs radiation more quickly than the head. One study shows that men who wear cell phones near their groin are at risk of reduced sperm count by up to 30 percent.

6. Avoid using the cell phone in enclosed metal spaces. Vehicles and elevators may require the device to work harder in establishing a connection. The metal also acts as a Faraday cage, trapping the radiation and reflecting it back upon the occupants.

7. Wait for the call to connect before placing phone next to the ear. More radiation is present during the connection time.

8. Avoid using the phone if the signal strength is down to one bar or less. This means the phone must work harder to establish a connection.

9. When purchasing a cell phone, choose one with low SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). The SAR level is listed in most phone instruction manuals. SAR is a way of measuring the quantity of radiofrequency (RF) energy absorbed by the body. A lower number equals less absorption. However, studies reveal that RF hundreds of times lower than current SAR limits still show biological effects.

10. Take antioxidant nutritional supplements. Free radicals in the body have been shown to create accelerated wear and tear, aging and degeneration. Cell phone and microwave radiation have been shown to decrease levels of these antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants such as Coenzyme Q10, Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), vitamin C, Picnoginal, Melatonin and others are protective agents against internal and external environmental stressors.

11. Utilize the Cell Phone Protection of a Scientifically Validated EMF Guard Device. Cell phone and microwave radiation and electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) deplete your bioenergy field and immune system. Since most people can not imagine living without a cell phone, the best option is to utilize an advanced technology now available, which significantly strengthens your bioenergy field and guards the body from the cumulative effects of repeated EMF exposure. EMFs weaken the body's ability to repair itself. Since radiation and EMFs are extremely prevailent, even when not using a cell phone, additional protection devices have been made for people, pets and home or office wiring. Some industry experts predict that we are on the verge of a health crisis that could cripple our current health care infrastructure. Now is the time to protect yourself and family.

The damaging effects of EMFs, cell phone radiation and wireless radiation pose an extreme public health risk. Don't wait for the cumulative effects of this highly detrimental force to become fully realized in your life. Take action and protect yourself and your family. Some industry experts predict that we are on the verge of a health crisis that could cripple our current health care infrastructure.

* We now experience 100 million times more EMF exposure than our grandparents
* 40% increase in brain tumors in last 20 years in Australia
* Autism in children increased 30-fold
* 21% increase in brain tumors in children
* 25% increase in brain cancer worldwide
