Poetry in Motion: Proposal Words of Art To Get You To The Altar
We’re not suggesting that your proposal rhymes. In fact, we advise against it, it’s pretty cheesy in a bad way. We do, however, suggest that you choose your words wisely.
It’s not just what you say and how you say it, it’s the elusions you make. What do we mean by that? Well, you could easily say “I’m happy” and we’ll understand the mood that you’re in.
Or, you could say “I feel like a kid in a candy shop” and we’d understand that, yes, you’re happy. We’d also understand that you’re excited, overwhelmed in a good way, and very much looking forward to something great.
This next set of engagement love quotes are examples of just that.
These inspiration proposals express feelings, they paint a picture:
“Most of what happens beyond words. The lexicon of lip and fingertip defies translation into common speech. I recognize the musk of your dark hair. It always thrills me, though I can’t describe it.”
“Close, close all night the lovers keep. They turn together in their sleep close as two pages in a book that read each other in the dark. Each knows all, the other knows, learned by heart, from head to toes.”
“The need remains forever: to have, to get my hands on, or to be taken, to lose myself, in a warmer, less urgent caress.”
“Till stars take over and do the same.”
“But I love your feet only because they walked upon the earth and upon the wind and upon the waters, until they found me.”
Maybe these poetic marriage proposal samples aren’t quite your cup of tea, but they sure do paint a picture. Use your own words to paint a picture for her that will echo through the ages.
