Modern romance poems and quotes by Arch Hades
Sharing my favourite poems and love quotes by Arch Hades here:
My past is for you
To understand me better
Not to punish me.
You know I’m not the jealous type
I don’t care who looks at you
So long as I have your attention
You’ll have all of mine too.
You’ll never see what’s in front of you
If you keep looking back.
People rarely change
Mostly they become more of what they already are.
If they’re confused about you
They have nothing real to offer you.
Focus more on how they treat you
And less on how much you like them.
Don’t lower your standards
For the sake of not being alone.
The ones who can only impress
With their bodies, wallets, or dress
Means there’s nothing else they possess.
To see a person’s true colors, watch how they act
When they don’t get what they want.
No one owes you your happiness.
You’re not asking for too much
You’re asking the wrong person.
Sometimes you have to stop looking
For the best in people, and watch
What they show you instead.
If I could sum up dating advice in two lines:
If they care, they will make time
If they don’t, stop wasting yours.
Whole, broken or breaking,
My heart is always full of love.
If someone is making you feel lonely— unheard,
Unnoticed, misunderstood— you’re better off alone.
Will I chase these dreams so long,
That they’ll turn into my nightmares?
Love’s not the word I’m looking for
That word’s too ordinary
You deserve a word that’s more
A word that’s never arbitrary.
Your broken heart beats just like mine,
But mine beats just for you.
Avoid people who only listen
When you agree with them.
You can forgive someone,
But still remove them from your life,
Not everyone deserves your time.
No one owes you unconditional
Acceptance of bad behaviour.
Fragile hearts, they often break
But heal with perseverance
And their pain, they soon forget
Fragile, yet resilient.
And can love again.
True love is not something that appears
Out of nowhere and effortlessly lasts forever.
You will have what you create together
and it will last as long as you both take care of it.
Sometimes I think I might miss you
Sometimes I doubt why I left
Then I remember the bad things
You did and how awful they felt.
Those who tell you ‘you’re too much’
Just aren’t enough to match you.
I wanted to believe in you so much
I started lying to myself.
I hope you loved reading these relationship quotes and poems by Arch Hades as much as I did.
