Valentine’s Day Poem

 

Cupid’s Day comes with nobody to share,

Alone in my room I’m left to my own.

Me, myself and I, so full of despair,

I am the eye of a courting cyclone.

 

Standing quite still as life swirls around me,

Hope begins to fade, wishful turns bitter.

Cupid gives up on seizing my bounty,

I am his arrow left in the quiver.

 

But all is not lost to a thing so bleak,

Being single today has a bonus.

The praise of another I need not seek,

Sounds good until I notice the moment.

 

One thought stays that I’d like to get rid of:

Am I content with Losing Grip on love?
