Love is a common theme for poetry. Many poets have sought to describe the feeling of falling in love, being in love, loving someone you shouldn’t, or loving someone who doesn’t return that affection. Love is universal: it can be personal romantic love or even the love of all one’s fellow human beings.
So ‘love’ and ‘poetry’ are pretty much synonymous, in many ways. Yet the romantic poet faces a substantial hurdle when writing their love poem.
