How to Know

A Poem by mcg03002

Yet another poem about what's on my mind


When everything I see reminds me of you;

When all that I am hopes you’ll be true;

When everything I do brings your face to mind;

That’s when I know I’m in love.


Because my heart aches when you’re not by my side;

And breaks when I hear that you've cried;

Because just to see you brings hope back again;

That’s how I know I’m in love.


The person who loves you can see past your faults;

And brings to your life new resolve;

They’ll help you to see that you still have some worth;

That’s how I know you’re in love.

Author's Note

Have at it guys. It's pretty basic and could use some doctoring up. I'm open to suggestions.

I really enjoyed that poem. Very cute. Very effective to have that "That's how I know I'm in love" Change to "You're in love" I thought that was really cool. Very meaning full. Not quiet "deep" so to say (In my opinion) . But it does have that aspect of seriousness to it. Nice. Really enjoyed that.

It's great to see some more classic poetry is still being written.

Thanks for sharing.

Yeah basic and simple but the effect is still powerful. When you wrote this, I'd say, love was dripping through your pen, filling the page. There's so much love to give and the person, whom the persona was referring to, could be drowned in heavenly bliss. Inspirational! Keep writing.

I liked the theme but you let your meter slip. I guess love interferes with concentration

Simple, but effective. I am not in any way trying to take away from your work as an artist, however your generalizations of love are not a true testament to your ability as a poet; judging from your other writing. I liked the poem. You, as an artist, is more than what you have here. That's enough of my bitchy constructive criticism. I must say your rhyming pattern of aabc creates a persistency of emotion, just as the piece as a whole towards the subject matter. A skilful trait in the least! Good job!

I think the simplicty of this poem is what gives it its charm. It read very much like a song; it has a lyrical quality. A little on the mawkish side but then "That’s how I know you’re in love" !!!

It is a great description of how love should be. There is the longing for the other, and the reciprocation of this joint feeling. The knowing that you are not perfect and that person still loves you for the imperfections is a great way to show the worth of their love. Again was done well in showing the love between lovers.

'when I hear that you cried;' perhaps "when I hear that you're cried" or " When i've heard that you have cried'
I don't know just an idea of mine that i might return too and disagree with later. lol

I like short and basic; its normally good [and it is good] it gets to the point but maybe write the same poem a little bit longer?

I don't know just a few ideas
but good write and this is my favorite writing this week :)

Like the light feel to it and of course the solid writing. The pace is spirited I think it hits the love nail right on through the heart. Nice job.
