Highway To Love Town

Posted on

 Not all of us are blessed wordsmiths, some of us need the help of poets to convey the things we really want to say when we’re in love. This is why we at Culture Custodian have compiled a fully comprehensive list of everything you could possibly need. Scroll down for quotes, poems, love letters, movie suggestions, love songs and spoken word poetry.


For your soulmate

“In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.” – Maya Angelou

“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” – Emily Bronte

For the long distance lovers

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)” – E. E. Cummings

“Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad, because I miss you, I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss.”

“And has it ever been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.” – Khalil Gibran


For second chances

“Sometimes what you’re searching for, is right where you left it” – Sweet Home Alabama

“People laugh, they call us crazy. It’s like they knew all along that sooner or later, we’d be back together.” – Allison Mosher

“Alright, let’s try this one more time with feeling.” – Blink 182

“I know we could both go on with our lives and we could both be fine, but I’ve seen what we could be like together and I choose us.” Family Man



You may choose to go with your classic Shakespeare sonnet

Sonnet 18 – William Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimmed.
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall Death brag thou wand’rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.


This poem would resonate especially with any couple that has a tumultuous love

Be Near Me – Faiz Ahmed Faiz

Be near me now,
My tormenter, my love, be near me—
At this hour when night comes down,
When, having drunk from the gash of sunset, darkness comes
With the balm of musk in its hands, its diamond lancets,
When it comes with cries of lamentation,
                                             with laughter with songs;
Its blue-gray anklets of pain clinking with every step.
At this hour when hearts, deep in their hiding places,
Have begun to hope once more, when they start their vigil
For hands still enfolded in sleeves;
When wine being poured makes the sound
                                             of inconsolable children
                      who, though you try with all your heart,
                                             cannot be soothed.
When whatever you want to do cannot be done,
When nothing is of any use;
—At this hour when night comes down,
When night comes, dragging its long face,
                                             dressed in mourning,
Be with me,
My tormenter, my love, be near me.
