My heart fell a million miles (a Valentine's poem)

Updated on May 2, 2012

Have you ever done that?

Given your heart away, I mean?

I gave my heart away today

To someone I knew well

He looked at me his special way

And then he broke the spell

What?!?!?! | Source


Tis nice you care for me that way

But I’ve someone else in mind

No, don’t go, you can stay

Things might change in time


I wondered what he meant by that

Was he saying he could care

Don’t worry, love, he said right back

Get between, she wouldn’t dare


Are you saying you would like us both

I asked in shocked despair

Of course, he said, who else could boast

Of two loves to hold so dear


My heart fell down a million miles

I lost all sense of time and place

I’d fallen for all his melting smiles

But love for me, he had not a trace

How about a cute stuffed Teddy Bear...

I’ll suffer from a broken heart

For Valentine’s Day this year

Perhaps I can work towards a new start

Like a cute stuffed Teddy Bear


At least he won't ask me to share!

      Thank you, Dee42, I'm glad you enjoyed my poem. I was treated that way a long time ago. Teddy Bears truly are better companions in that case, right? :) thanks for the votes and the comment.

      thank you for the comment, I was trying to be funny, however, I have and I'm sure others have been treated this way by one, or two. :) PS: I promise to find someone else, but that Teddy Bear looks real cute right about now......:)

      If any man ever asks you to do something you don´t want to, Give him the elbow, I say. Love is a two way thing.

      Find someone better, although I must admit, as a poem I found it quite funny. Well written
