Poetry Blogs (valentines day)
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....

Buying each other pointless things
chocolates flowers diamond rings
In the hope to share our love
But still it feels it's not enough
We could just forget it
and we wouldn't regret it
But those feelings i have make me want to share
love you show you how much i care
It's strange how without you i feel so alone
makes me weep cry and moan
I'm to emotional and sensitive...

The roses gave her hay fever,
the chocolates made her fat,
if I were to believe her
that would be the end of that.
She complained the wine was bitter
and the card was over priced,
my verse didn’t raise a titter
‘cos it wasn’t very nice.
The lingerie was far too tight,
I looked a proper sight
in the stockings and suspender...

THE DAY BEFORE VALENTINE'S
Is this ritual or adventure
See how quickly
The words are written
No longer anonymous
Is this a box to check
A form to fill
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

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
