    She stood there
    seething with jealousy
    at the love scenes
    playing out in front of her

    she had no man.

    no floral agents would grace her door
    no roses or chocolates would be
    presented to her

    she had no man.

    no one to share her lover's day
    or sway the night away {with}

    one by one...
    couples delved into their fun
    through jestures of love and cheer
    she feared never again to feel
    what they felt

    she had no man

    she has so much love to share
    but no plans to share
    no...

    she stood there

    jealous

    waiting for this lover's day
    to fade away
    so she could resume her life
    of loneliness
    unnoticed.

    she was alone
    on her own
    there was no prince charming
    to save her day
    ...fill her nights
    with the sweet release of love

    year after year
    had made her bitter
    with the phraseology of
    Be My Valentine
    as loneliness
    ate away at her

    she had no flowers
    to throw away
    ...to dry and preserve
    she had no hang over
    from wine or love

    she had no man.

    she stood...
    waiting for her piece of the pie
    her share of romance
    on lover's day

    but it wasn't to be

    {even on the day after}

    sometimes...

    we get so caught up in our own love that we forget about all those who are not drowning in the happiness of the day. THANKS FOR READING ME.
