Valentine’s Day
small gift box
The Ring?

unsure of what to say
the radio saves me . . .
her favorite song

Valentine's day
leftover chocolates
he left on the doorstep

Valentine’s Day
letting him eat
the dark chocolates

first formal
the dance floor

Valentine’s ball
waiting on the side
to be asked

dancing with you
but then
I wake up

his eyes on my
hips, I
sway a little more


top half champion





bottom half champion


(Self Centered)
and lack of Respect…
My MoM says I’m a catch

cherry-scented envelope
Will you be my Valentine?

dead roses
seem wrong
yet so right

I’ve always.

bottom quarter champion





fresh crush
first impression

brick by brick
she rebuilds the wall
around her heart

on Valentine’s
melted chocolate

Valentine's Day
I hate it
