5 Love quotes to inspire the poet in you this Valentine's Day

Roses are red... violets are blue... Okay, stop. Unless your final lines are so unique they're worthy of a Man Booker Prize nomination, you're going to have to do better than that this Valentine's Day. 

If the wordsmith in you is lacking a bit of originality, or you're looking for some words that just happen to sum up exactly how you feel, then take inspiration from these witterings which sum up exactly what it means to love someone with your whole heart...

The words of Canadian poet Christy Ann Martine are unashamedly romantic. Who could fail to be moved by words so simple, and yet loaded with such beautiful sentiments?

This beautiful verse will resonate with anyone who struggles to find the right words to express how they feel. They come from the pen of US singer/songwriter Ben Folds, in his track The Luckiest.  

The originator of this quote is an intriguing poet, whose biography reads: "Eric Micha'el Leventhal is a literary consultant based on the Hawaii. A graduate of Stanford University, he lived and journeyed extensively in Japan, Brazil and India before trading everything for love.' And judging by these gorgeous words, his other half is a lucky one!

Taken from John Green's novel, The Fault In Our Stars, these words perfectly evoke the all-consuming nature of first love, as depicted in the tale between a teenage cancer sufferer, and a young amputee she meets at a support group. 

We love these words, just like we love that heady last scene from the movie, when Harry storms in on a New Year's Eve party and finally tells Sally how he feels about her. #Swoon
