Premium Member Best Valentines Day Ever
He brought me chocolate candy.
I am allergic to chocolate.
He brought me roses.

I despise cut flowers.

Whipping out a T-shirt I would never wear.
He must have me mixed up...Read More

Premium Member A day not planned
Like the waters of a flood 
I’m just not loved
you're beauty drowned
you are just giving me the run around

one more rain drop in a down pour
just another wave hitting the shore
flopsam to be cast aside
I'm floundering in the flood tide

My Valentine
If I could go back in time,
I wouldn't change a thing.
When I look at you I see,
What then made my heart sing.

Your beauty and innocence is all I ever see.
Beside you forever and always is where I'll ever be.

How do I find a girl? He asked me.
He is alone on Valentine's Day.
He is fifty-six years old.

Maybe you are turning them away
By calling them Girls I told him.

What is a valentine?
Is it a person, you love for life?
Or someone who you dine?
No, I believe it a true love.
The one God had mind.
Your perfect match.
Not just a band aid patch.
No, a true valentine???
Is God ultimate design.

Let's lay in each other's arms
Feel the comfort it can bring
We were meant to be together
I'll be your queen, you my king

To fight each other's demons

Give a security neither felt
Removing all our need to roam

Cupid's Arrow
Cupid’s Arrow

Cupid’s arrow has a flaw,
It always seems to fall short.
Love has teeth and claws,
And it isn’t a mere sport.

Cupid’s arrow has a flaw,
And it doesn’t cause love.
It seems to cause strife and makes us bawl,
It is most definitely not...Read More

For Valentine’s Day they won’t fail
To impress all the gals
Who are more than just pals
And a hint of romance will prevail.

For these flowers considered deluxe.
Maybe buyers don’t care

Fiery Smirk Smote - Day 14
bleeding blushes ooze
damping dessicated drool
punctured passion puke
nauseating nocturnal nude
felon feelings fostered
gaunt gazes murdered

fiery smirk smote
undaunted gift grown
on fervent flow

salient soil pulsed
leering lanky lust
foaming feelings gulped

on vying Valentine
gaunt gazes dine.
