Step 1

Become serious about writing meaningful love poetry

Become serious about writing meaningful love poetry, consistently and regularly, thus allowing your inner passion, to blossom fully and to find expression, through the words that you write. Your reader will know immediately if your heart is not in your work. If what you write does not have meaning for you, will it have meaning or significance for others?

Step 2

Focus on mastering new love poetry writing skills

First of all, find one unique style of writing love poetry, that is easy for you to write and expresses significance or meaning, to you. Then, begin to experiment with other, new and different styles of writing love poetry. Remember that no two poets will ever write love poetry exactly the same way. Nor should they! Your writing style will be evident in the skills that you master. People will begin to recognize your love poetry writing skills over time. In fact, they will begin to do what you are doing.

Step 3

Write your love poetry down immediately

Write your love poetry down immediately, or as soon as possible after it comes into your mind. That way, it will not be forgotten or disappear in the wind. Be aware that you may not be able to recall it exactly the same way or completely, at a later time or date. Its meaning or significance may be lost, as well. A muse is rather elusive at times, so be alert to the triggers that inspire you to write love poetry. When it comes to you, pen it down, exactly as it comes, even if you do not comprehend it fully. Later, you and others may begin to understand it, at least in part. Perhaps there is more that still has to be written.

Step 4

Allow yourself to be the instrument

Allow yourself to be the instrument, through which your love poetry passion flows. No one else may be willing or able to convey what you desire to say, in terms of meaningful love poetry. Those words have been given to you and to you alone. It is up to you to make certain that they are penned, recorded or documented, in some way. Your thoughts, feelings and desires are important. Taping your love poetry is another option, as well. Then, as you replay and listen to your own words, ask yourself if they are meaningful to you. You will know if they are and you may be astounded at what you hear.
