Why take it out on Cupid? For those who hate Valentine's Day

Updated on February 12, 2010

Why take it out on Cupid?
you know
what I mean
he’s just a kid
who came up
with a
clever idea.

a way to say
I love you
for those
who just can’t admit
that they do

whose hearts
are frozen
but yet
have chosen
to fake it
with candy and flowers

and say in rhyme
just one more time
what they cannot say
out loud

you know the ones
who sit and stare
at the box
in their chair
till snow
fills up the screen

who come home late
and lick the plate
left warming
for hours
on the stove

It's just
once a year
that’s what cupid
was thinking
let them shower you
with candy and flowers

feel sorry for those
who cannot expose
their inner most feelings
with ease

      Love it Alek! I have to admit, my husband and I forgo the card, flowers and chocolates on Valentine's Day. It's our way of saying, "Everyday is Valentine's Day":)

      Thanks, Mahesh, it was fun writing it. Have sort of gotten away from poetry a bit, since I started writing my memoir. Guess I'll get back to it one of these days.
