“If I had a Valentine…”

“If I had a Valentine…”

I would invite him to Easter Sunday.

Of course he wouldn’t go.

‘Cause it’s Valentine’s Day.

Hmph.

“If I had a Valentine…”

Fast Company and the Gucci Killer?

Valentine, Valentine, Valentine…

Surely one day you’ll read me and then.

Then the day shall come.

A great awakening.

“If I had a Valentine…”

If and still no have.

Maybe I should rob a jewelry store and have them make me a grill.

Smile for me daddy, I wanna see your grill.

Chuckle.

Pearls in a row I swear.

Jail gates.

“If I had a Valentine…”

Fuck it man, fuck it.

Fuck me.

Little play on words.

Happy FUCKING Valentine’s Day!

“If I had a Valentine…”

All the things that could and should be,
Swallowed up deep inside the void that was once my heart;
“If I had a Valentine…”
You will never be caught in the thunderstorm,Sad Valentine
The down pour of my sweet caress,
All the things that could and should be,
Dancing under the rain in celebration of love’s union
As we are serenaded by our favorite song;
“If I had a Valentine…”
Amidst thunder and lightning in the only embrace I ever cherished
Gazing into each others eyes for what seems an eternity,
All the things that could and should be,
Every year passes by with a lingering hope,
Waiting for the feeling that my heart once knew to return;
“If I had a Valentine…”
This day of all the days seems to cry out your name,
Whipping winds whisper I love you in response.
All the things that could and should be,
“If I had a Valentine…”

“If I Had A Valentine…”

“If I had a Valentine…”
I would mail him lots of love letters.
I want to be all that there is.
I know that you love me. Love…
Yesterday I glimpsed your face.
Tonight I will dream of you.Sad Valentine
“If I had a Valentine…”
Would that be enough?
Holidays that pass and I am all that there is.
“If I had a Valentine…”
“Why can’t you hear me?”
My poem hurts you.
Read it again Valentine.
Your love defeats me. Defeated I stand.
“If I had a Valentine…”
“If,” and not, “I have…”
Poetry in motion.
Experience that doesn’t compare to you.
I have experience.
You and your hair.
This, I remember. This, I adore.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Rapport.

“If I Had A Valentine…”

“If I had a Valentine…”
I would serve him breakfast in bed every Sunday morning.Sad Valentine
And at night if he asked me to sing him a song before he went to sleep;
The sweetest of melodies whispering gently to his ears.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.
Bubble baths for two.
The smell of jasmine in the air.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Feeling like a million dollars with my Valentine in my arms.
Just put it in the bag. Valentine I love you and all your dirty.
“If I had a Valentine…”
Looking in his eyes would inspire me to write him a poem and share it with the world.
Of course, I don’t have a Valentine but if I did, “Good golly!” He’s gonna think I invented sex.
