A Poem by EnternalNight

A Valentines poem

Walking home 
Passing a store
Glancing in the window
Smiling softy

Unlocking the door
Throwing my bag on my bed
"I can't believe I bought it..."
Sighing I set it on my desk

waking up
My heart beating fast
The butterfly's start their dance

My hands in my pockets
Bag on my shoulder
Nerves creeping in
Take a deep breath
"Calm down" I think to myself
"Everyone's doing it"

Walking home with you
You talking about your latest crush
Another guy who you gave chocolate to
I smile and listen
but only just

As we pass the place where we first met 
The butterfly's dance again
I stop and you ask what's wrong
I bite my lip and hand you the small box

You smile and thank me
Asking how I knew these are your favorite
My stomach doing flips
I wish the butterfly's would calm down

You laugh when I shrug 
And take my hand in yours
You whisper a soft "thank you"
Lightly kissing me on the cheek

This is a great poem about the beginning of a new romance. It is done in a creative and unique way the the flow is smooth almost seamless. The picture of a young couple holding hands comes to mine and i like how you describe being nervous. Butterflies.

Oh, how I wish I could do that with the one I love. Alas, it's forbidden.
