Black Poetry : Anyway Happy Valentines Day. I just hope you didn’t show up for the tears.


Jul 2, 2003
All day I have been wrestling with my emotions.
Mixed they are but I know I feel devotion.

Couldn’t I get the attention you placed on me today? Always?

I like it, but I’m leery.
Is it really here to stay?

I bought into your rhetoric.
I listened to your lines.
I heard you say you’re sorry.
So act like it some time.

Valentine this heart of mine.
Is wounded from the years.

I cried inside and almost died.
Giving in to you.

I love you too.

But I can no longer take the pain.
You will treat me thin and leave me again.
Until Valentines Day next year.

No saloon swinging doors on my heart of course.
But you act like you can come as you please.

In a way I’m weak.
When I hear you speak.
All will and logic hits the floor.

I have to walk away, find my true love another day.
It won’t be with you I’m afraid.
Anyway Happy Valentines Day.
I just hope you didn’t show up for the tears !
