Screw the chocolate!

Screw the chocolate!

A Poem by Mark



      

          “Screw the Chocolate”

 

 

Screw the chocolate, the flowers, it’s a Hallmark Holiday,

So FTD and bonbons make up for the rest of the year?

Why wait for just one day, to tell that special someone,

How they make your heartstrings resonate like an angels choir?

To do the special little things that make you happy and smile,

And love you , just because they have found someone,

Who knows them so completely, and who’s passion shines

In their eyes, like a bright sun, reflected, in a drop of morning dew on a blood red rose?

The same person, who can easily finish your sentences, because

Twin souls of twin minds are in sync, and keep time, meshing Like the gears of an exquisitely crafted, jeweled, hand made Swiss watch?

So screw the chocolate, and the flowers.

Okay, maybe not the chocolate!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

My pleasure, and thank you for reading!
I love the sentiment... I agree wholeheartedly... should show them each and every day just how special they are to you... This is really "sweet" and is an awesome substitute for that chocolate.. it is the little things that mean the most to those you love.. it is the way you notice small things and make her feel special... lovely write... I enjoyed...

Yes, it tends to be that way. Thanks very much.
this is great...i hate that Valentines Day is the one day...so much pressure to show our feelings on one day....but what about the other 364?

there are so many Card days now...everything is a hallmark occasion...
you express it so well with this poem.
