Rupi Kaur Love Poems Lifeism

At some point in our lives, we have all experienced love. From the sweet, tender childhood love, to a familiar love towards our friends, to the deep, altruistic love for our family– we’ve all experienced the warm feeling that makes our heart glow. And, if you did not know already, we are huge fans of Rupi Kaur. We love her style and her couplets. While she writes great poems about self-love and feminism, she does a fantastic job in writing love poems as well. Poetry as a medium has been used to express love, often. Many claim that poetry is the true expression of love and romance.

In this article, we’ve curated some of the best of Rupi Kaur‘s Love Poems. We’ve made sure to include the full Instagram post and doodles to add more context to the poems. These poems not only bring to life the passion that lovers experience but also weave beautiful images of commitment, friendship, and heartbreak.

We hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do. Share these couplets with your loved ones and make them feel cherished and loved. 


In this poem, Rupi Kaur talks about commitment. She goes beyond the usual “till death do us apart” and promises lifetimes of commitment. She portrays the sense of unending, immortal love that we experience, promising to find a way to our soulmate eternally.

In this poem, Kaur gets up close, personal and steamy. A beautiful poem to inspire romance and spark passion.

Another raunchy poem from Rupi Kaur from her book, “milk and honey”, these words bring to life, the excitement of carnal desires in romance. Rupi Kaur uses her customary simple illustration in this poem, showing two lovers kissing.

Haven’t we all felt this way in our lives? Be it a friend or a lover, we all have that special someone in our lives with whom we can spend endless hours of conversation, feeling vulnerable but heard and understood. Many times, we talk about insignificant things, and yet it feels like a deep and meaningful conversation. Those late nights turn into early mornings.

In this poem, Kaur pays homage to those wonderful, sweet gentlemen who we all love and adore. Those with hearts of honeycomb.

A vivid poem about heartbreak, this one also has a strong visual. With meaning that runs deep, this poem touches on the idea that we are all connected in many ways. And in some ways, we also experience the pain we inflict on each other. Particularly so if we were romantically involved with the person we are hurting. Accompanied by a remarkable and provoking visual, this poem, cuts deep.

We love this poem. It is so profound and conveys a message many of us cannot articulate. When our heart breaks, it’s not because of the memories of the past, but because of the potential of the future that did not come into existence. The poem eloquently expresses the feelings of hurt and, the painful acceptance when we decide to move on.

Movies have romanticized the idea that there is that one perfect someone in the world that’s only made for you. This person will be everything you need him or her to be. This is unfair, not just to your partner but also to yourself. To expect that from just one person is unrealistic. So when you get in a tiff with your partner, remember, they are only human. Release them and yourself from the unnecessary pressure to be everything to you.

Toxic relationships take a toll on our emotional and physical health. They wear us down and drain us out. Healthy relationships charge us up and keep us going, even in the darkest of times. In this poem, Kaur talks about that period when we know we are over that toxic relationship and are ready for a new one.

In this poem, Kaur touches on that feeling of new love. That first time you meet someone and believe that they are perfect, bright, beautiful. They light up the world with their existence. An emotion captured perfectly in this poem.

Even though this poem is not only about romantic love, we think it deserves a special mention. If we can just cultivate the feelings of compassion and kindness (much like the Dalai Lama recommends), this world and our relationships would be so much deeper and more meaningful.

When we lose someone, or when our heart breaks, be it a friend or a lover, it hurts all the same. Like Kaur puts it – a loss is a loss is a loss.

Leave it to Rupi Kaur to describe in words, feelings that we all have experienced in our lifetime. Leave it to Kaur to not just verbalize them, but also express them succinctly and brilliantly.
