Happy Valentine's!


It's such a happy homely brand,

such a loving hand to hold.

Nothing says "forced adoration" quite the same

as an overpriced printed bit of Hallmark card.


Though I came in drunk last night

and all we've done is fight,

and we haven't actually spoken for a week,

this greeting card's designed to wipe out

all the battle lines and it's guaranteed

an armistice today.

Valentine poemvalentines day


Buying each other pointless things

chocolates flowers diamond rings

In the hope to share our love

makes me weep cry and moan

I'm to emotional and sensitive

misunderstood agendas,

I looked a proper sight

in the stockings and suspender...

A contract to renew

An essential procedure

The mind indifferent

Even irritated but....

The heart restless

Insistent that this

Is not an option

Ink on cardboard

Flesh on flesh

One forever...

Bought  in a giddy moment

when happiness outweighed intellect

the card now haunts me

for what do you do

with an unsent valentine?


Cherry red and black

my favourite colours

except I can’t wear it

the corset ‘s too brief

and the feathers might itch ;)


Can’t throw it away

it cost the price of a G&T…

but I can’t drink it either

it migh...
