LOVE UNSPOKEN (POEM)

What is the best way to express love? Some would say, “Put it in verse. If possible, sing it.” Nothing can be loftier, more extravagant, right?

However, this poem has a different view. Sometimes, words are not just able to capture how deeply we feel or care about someone.

Love unspoken

The best love poems are unspoken
The lines are in the look of the eyes
Sometimes in the touch of the hands
But mostly in companionable silence

    Love is best expressed how you feel it. this is a really thoughtful piece, I love you ma!

  • Emeh Akachukwu Esther

    There is this strong connection hidden in unspoken love and the feeling of love is stong..Love you ma

  • Ozoguejiofor Uche Jacinta

    Love is everything we say and do and has less to do with words.

  • Nwangwu chisom

    Love is best when is shown. Take a look at God, He loved us so much He sent His only son to die for us. Now that’s the greatest love of all. Its not about the words you say but about your action. Your action towards people or anybody will determine how sincere your love it.

  • Anyalewechi Chinaza

    You are right ma, love is not necessarily expressed by writing in lines of poem, our gestures sometimes portray love.

  • judith

    Love is best understood with gestures not by words only

  • Afiadigwe Nnedinso Rita

    Wow so good to know ma, really this is something new to me.

    There are no truer words. Words sometimes are inadequate to capture how one truly feels. There are not just enough words to fully explain what you mean, you know. There’s always something missing. So you don’t even bother trying to put it into words, you just give in to silence and let it speak volumes for you. And sometimes, that’s all you need to do. Lovely post aunty ?

  • Onyeka Stanley

    The presence of someone can reveal love. Indeed, the best love poems are unspoken. Sometimes, words are nothing and can’t be used to describe the love and affection we have towards someone. Nice one ma’am.

    Love is something no one can do without. We all need to be loved. That is why our father who is at in heaven, showed us love by sending his only begotten son to die for the forgiveness of our sins. Jehovah set the standard of how to love and equally made love the first commandment.

  • Oshana Oyaku Endurance

    Sometimes in love, words can not be used to express it, but in the silences and the looks deep down the eyes it can be expressed.

  • Brown Bethel Ogadimma

    There are so many ways to express love, from your eyes, actions, words, touches and so on. Sometimes words or lines of poems are not enough to express or show how much we love someone. So in anyway you know you can best express and show love, just go on and do it.

  • Ezeh Chimezie Amos

    Yes, it’s very true that sometimes words aren’t just enough to pour our feelings to the people we love. Most times it’s even better to keep mute and express our feelings/love via actions. After all, “actions speaks louder than words “, they say

  • Paschal Odigonma Victoria

    Just as action speaks louder than voice so does love speaks louder in actions. When you express love in actions it can’t be easily doubted. God expressed love by sending his only son, so that we might be saved (John 3:16)

  • Mark Favour

    Love should be expressed, quite alright but, words, actions, compassionate stares may never be enough.
    It doesnt matter the way it is been expressed, what matters is the receiver tell,see, and know that you love him.

  • Egbo Paul Uchenna

    If it’s not from the heart unto another heart. It is not love.

  • Ani Fabian chukwuebuka

    Love can be express in so many ways the most important thing is for the other partner to understand how you feel for him or her. But me I prefer it by words and actions. Nice piece ma.

  • Ejiofor Emmanuel

    The poem is short but it says it all. Actions in love speaks louder than the thousands of love poems.
