On this day, I give you roses of red-
One for each time my heart has bled,
Petals so soft and vulnerable in store-
Just as my heart, crushed upon the floor.

Thick green stems, simply the finest-
Just as the ropes that eternally bind us,
And the thorns, ever hidden from view-
Many times Iíve felt the prick of you.

The thinly lined wrapper, color of gold,
Conceals the very truths left untold.
The ribbon of delicately woven silk strands,
Reminding of my tears, so freely they ran.

This gift being my final loose end-
To a battle I simply could not win,
Saying goodbye to our life of past-
I wish you the best of luck to be had.

I wish there was more that I could say...
This is definantly not the Happy Valentine's Day...

Ditto on the emotions, devina - Definately not a Happy Valentine's Day.  At least you seem to be closing the door to the past and the unattainable.  You're probably a step ahead of me there...  Things will change for you soon, I see a smile in your future.

devina, This a very nicely done poem.
I wish I could say the things that you
need. Healing takes far too much time it seems. What you need is a deversion. Though we love you here at passions, get off this computer get out make new friends. Put a big smile on that lovely face, show those lushes lips, and they will come running. A new romance always helps to fade the other behind.... Hugs

A diversion helps, but doesn't heal. That comes from within. And this eloquently written piece shows you have the strength to, someday, move on. Great work.

Very beautifully spoken dear...I applaude you in your moving on.  Brighter days are ahead for you indeed.  Hold your head high...Happy Valentines Day from little 'ol me nonetheless!!

It fills my heart with sadness to see
That there is no Valantine for thee
If we all think of thee
Would that help just a little tiny wee
A rose for you I cannot send (still haven't figure this on out yet)
But here's a virtual HUG that I will spend
Nevertheless, the poem is beautifully made dear

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

devina, your poem is a fragrant bouquet of feelings...love, loss, bitterness, anguish, strength and hope...all delicately gathered and beautifully arranged. Happy Valentines Day from me to you.

This is sad, but it does sound like you're moving on. Very well written!

Sorry you are not having a happy valentines day Devina.  This is a nice reminder that on these occasions, Christmas too, not everyone is happy, some are sad.  I am hoping that a special blessing will come your way on valentines day.   James

I'm going to Florida in March 12-26 I guess that's not close to you. sigh!! By the time I get there you'll be scooped up my sweet Valentine. So I'll have to send you all my hugs and kisses xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

Hey devina!  I have an idea -- let's go out and get REALLY, REALLY DRUNK tonight!!

LOL -- you're only about 3000 miles away -- (looking at flight schedule) I might make it there before midnight!  LMAO!

PS:  Valentine's day really sucks.

 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Hey Devina.  This is the first of your work I read.  It is very depressing, but i can empathize with it.  I dont think they should even have a V-day.  You should love someone every day, nit jsut today.  Well good luck

LOL@you Chris...your are the man with the plan...did we mention that you're invited???

BP- I think you're right about loving someone every day of the year...but Valentine's day does signify more than love- for me it was just letting go this year...maybe next year will be better!!
