February is here, and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
The gushy, romantic day for women.
The irritating, stressful day for men.
What is Valentine’s Day?
Some call it a day to express your true love and passion.
Others, more cynically, call it Singles’ Awareness Day.
I think I fall somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.
I’m so not into the lovey dovey shout-my-personal-life-to-the-world thing. But I’m not sulking around thinking, Oh my Ross Turner…I’m gonna be alone forever. Although, I do enjoy the candy part.
I think the Day of Hearts is good for showing your friends and family how much you appreciate them! I suggest dividing up your time, not just spending it all with your inamorato/inamorata.
One major theme of all V-Days is the unrequited love thing.
Oh yes, you ALL know what I’m talking about.
I bet some of you have even written cheesy love poems.
This week, I had to do that for school. I wrote some pretty bad poems. And I mean horrible poems.
I’m no love poet.
But got some inspiration late Wednesday night and wrote my least awful poem yet.
I entered it in our school’s love poetry contest.
Stay tuned, all you lovers, my poem’s coming your way.
