Who doesn’t love reading poetry? Okay, okay, I understand it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Yet, I do believe that historically it has proven to be a calming and relaxing activity. There’s nothing like brewing a hot cuppa tea and reading, IMHO. So, when I came across my (now) favourite poet Beau Taplin‘s work on Instagram, I couldn’t help but purchase two of his classic works: Bloom and World’s Of You. His poems shed light on some of the most typical everyday situations you might find yourself in, whether it is love, heartbreak, betrayal, friendship, life goals or more. His poems on love, in particular, really moved me. Hence, here are my 20 top picks from his love poems:

My new book Here At Dawn is available now through the link in my bio! 🌞 • Earlier this year, my @alizebarange flew all the way from Paris to surprise me here in Melbourne, and so all I can say to those with long distance affections is this: don’t be afraid to take a chance, to follow every secret wish of your heart. The stars reward those who are passionate and bold. Of this I am utterly sure. x love Beau
I truly cannot pick my favourite from these (and trust me, there’s so many more than these). I have to say that poetry has a way of uniting souls and making you realise that, perhaps, you’re not the only one who is going through something.
Let me know in the comments what your favourite love poem is!
