We all want our boyfriends to write us poems about how much they love us.

Well, since that might not happen, you should spend time reading books of poetry by the world's most famous poets instead.

They wrote better than your man can, anyway.

If you're not quite sure where to look, here are a few amazing books of poetry that you should pick up:2

Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

If you're a fan of Breaking Bad, then you've heard about this book before, because it was sitting on the back of Walter White's toilet during that famous scene.

If you don't know anything about what's actually contained inside, it has a series of poems that "celebrate the triumph of America." If you want to read works by one of the greatest poets of all time, then you should pick up a copy of this book, which "captures the American spirit."
