What Makes Relationship Poems So Special

Human beings as a whole are all about relationships, so it only naturally follows that relationship poems are going to be quite popular for both writers and readers alike.

It seems that most poems have to do with relationships in one way or another.

This only seems fitting, after all, poets are just like the rest of us and spend a lot of time thinking, analyzing, or just daydreaming about relationships.

There are many types of poems to be enjoyed. For instance, many poems deal with the sadder side of relationships- such as bereavement, betrayal, or a whole host of other unpleasant "be-" words.

However, many other poems do a great deal of celebrating the happier side of relationships. Truly, there are poems for every aspect of relationships, and there is bound to be something that you relate to.

These types of poems have flourished since the beginning days of writing and poetry. For instance, even the great Shakespeare based most of his sonnets on relationships or relationship issues.

In fact, it would be very difficult to find a poet who has never written these types of poems, or even a poetry lover who has never enjoyed them.

These poems about relationships are wonderful because they help us to know that there are others that have felt the same way that we do, whether for better or worse.

In a way, they're like a friend who knows exactly what we are going through, which is what makes them so great to read.

And if you find yourself tongue tied, send a nice poem. It just may help.
