Love Poems That Will Make Your Heart Ache

Maybe it's the rain. Maybe it's the swell of emotion we're feeling after a long, holiday weekend. Maybe it's our Valentine's Day hangover. Whatever the reason, we find ourselves in the mood for some love poetry this morning. We're not talking the fluffy stuff, either — we're looking for the gritty, heartbreaking stuff. And, our friends over at Blackbook have just the remedy.
The collection includes the classics: Ted Hughes' "Love Song," some of Anne Sexton's greatest hits, and our personal favorite, Frank O'Hara's "Having A Coke With You." Head over to Blackbook and check out the rest of the poems. We promise it will make you feel all of the feelings. (Blackbook)
