Valiant Times

Image result for dark valentine

in valiant times
i present
you..

my cardboard heart
soaked in
soul,

it’s that i can afford
and, yes
i’m..

less than you
deserve,
but
if

it’s any
consolation,

i pained over every
letter raw-

i pried feelings naked
and hiding
from..

pen’s stiff
claws,

it’s my valentine
kiss with
love,

it’s
all i’ve got..
hope it’s enough.

    • Hahaha, thanks. I don’t tend to enjoy writing poetry appropriate for the occasion, but in some circumstances it’s more fun to play along than to play contrarian.. though I do love that contrarian mask as well! 😉 Stay well!
