Every year without fail,
You call me.
You know I don't celebrate Valentine's day,
Yet you still call me.
Every year, 
You catch me off guard.
But this year,
I was ready,
And this year,
You didn't call me.
This year, 
I spent my first Valentine's day without you.
Considering I don't even celebrate it,
I shouldn't care.
It shouldn't bother me this much,
But it does.
Probably because it was the first.

    You just painted a great picture here, don't know if you are aware of it or not but you did. Impressive, you probably did not expect someone to love this as much as I do, but for some reason, I am drawn to this piece. Could be your powers? Or maybe you just have that effect on guys lol. Love how you missed what you didn't know you enjoyed. Great hindsight and you learned from it obviously. Stuff like this is what makes us love life and words. GREAT JOB
