Paper Hearts

entry picture

Paper hearts don't beat

They tear

Of Valentine's?

He was not aware

All she wanted

Was a rose of red

But spending money

Brought him dread

She rolls her eyes

And looks above

As he tells of how

She has his love

These words sound


Said without cost

That was the day

Her love

He lost

Then came the 14th day

Of Feb

A new lover she found


The web!

Valentine's Day

A rose
is given
no words
be spoken
a token
of love
is what
skips a
hear beat
for a
valentine lover.

Now dating, Ruth
On 14 Feb
No roll of eyes
Is seen on web

Where am I going
With this ditty?
No idea
All miss and hitty

At least my hitty
Rhymes with ditty
Really it's all
One great pity

Or all bit shitty.......

But you're a great little rhymer fella.......

Thanks mate
