Reading and Deliberating


This contest is in honor of Valentine's Day. So I'm looking for love poems. Preferably happy ones, and preferably about your love interest (no relatives, pets, or friends).

*******I've extended the deadline until Valentine's Day of next year so that I'll be able to fill all of my award slots. Thank you to those of you that have already submitted work. I love reading your poems!**********


Knowing you can write one hell of a love poem. ;)
