St. Valentine's Twisted Tale

St. Valentine's Twisted Tale

A Poem by Hippy

my story of st. valentine and its not gonna be what you expect


St. Valentine was a man

Who inspired love all across the land

He was a powerful man, full of love

He filled all his people with the holy essence

Called love


He soared them on high

On loves wings they would fly

Till this day

When he would rip their hearts from the sky


He adored their love

He wished them to love more

He wanted their hearts

Forever to adore


It was a sick game that he played

Putting people together

To join them forever

In this holy act


Then on their honey moon

He would enter their room

And take out his dagger

Cutting open the two

Making their blood splatter


Tearing out their hearts

Sewing them together

So there love would always remain

Sewn together, lasting forever


He took all these hearts

Keep them together

In the back room

Where their love would remain

Sewn together forever


Until the day King Claudius came

The king and his men

Caught Valentine in the act

Of sewing the lovers

That he had just hacked


So they took him

To the prison

Where he would spend his last days


That’s when the people got their turn to act

Beating and stoning him

Breaking his back

Then they took him to the guillotine

Where he would take his last breathe

And with his last words he said


“I joined them together

In the life that they had

Marriage was the only way

To make their love last

Though I knew they would pass

And there love would seize to last

So I took there organ of love

And sewn it together

Where their love would truly last forever”


Then the guillotines blade dropped

And Valentine’s head rolled off

Deleting this mans cruel, cruel plans for eternal love

This is a really great poem that had a wonderful twist. I love the gore in it and it was really exciting making me want to read more and more. There were two typo's that I wanted to tell you about (they are quick fixes) The 6th stanza says tearing our I think you wanted out? The th stanza 3rd line it says beaking I think you wanted breaking? Other than that GREAT GREAT GREAT POEM!
