I liked this one so much I had to repost it...I hope no one minds!
       To My Valentine


                                                    Once upon
                                                      A time
                                                     There was
                                                    Truth to the
                                                   Myth of what
                                                       You
                                                      And I
                                                    Had found
                                                  In a blank paged
                                                     Fairy tale.

                                                    Snow white
                                                   Doesn't sleep
                                                 In a casket made of
                                                      Glass
                                                  Slippers will break
                                                  If you wear them.

                                                  Walk across this
                                                    Written word
                                                    With fingers
                                                      Gently
                                                     Seeking
                                                      Loving
                                                       You
                                                      And me
                                                     No more.

                                                     He loves
                                                       Me
                                                   He loves me!
                                                      Not…
                                                     Enough.

                                                       To:
                                                    My Valentine
                                                     Will you
                                                     Be mine
                                                    No longer…

                                                ~ Angela Erin Burke ~

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Saxoness-
I caught it in Holiday ...
loved it then ... love it now.
This is wonderful ...

Slippers will break
If you wear them.'

Thanks Marge!  I hope no one minds my little bit of vanity in a repost...

I personally think this is a great poem.  I like the way it set me up for another (typical) "Be Mine, Valentine" poem, and then dropped the other shoe right in the middle of it all.  Its too bad the candy company that makes those little candy message hearts couldn't use this poem for those naughty naughty children who need to get blown out of the water periodically - lol.

Naturally, I do NOT in the least show even a hint of favoritism for my fave teen poet of all time.  Not one little bit.  Nope.

This was terrific, as others say, snow white reference great and ending quite unexpected. Good work!

I didn't catch this in Holiday, so I'm glad I did here.  A broken slipper fairy tale, to your valentine.  Enjoyed much.

Joy, thank you! I think the miracle would be me writing a Valentines poem that WASN'T sad.
