I Love You: A Valentine Poem

I love the way you brush your hair
While lying in the bed,
So strands of hair and dandruff drift down
On my resting head.

I love the way you look at me,
When outside in the sun,
With squinting eyes that look so mad it
Makes me want to run.

I love the way you call my name
When I am nowhere near.
The piercing shriek kills wildlife
And fills us all with fear.

I love the way you touch me,
Your caress is always kind.
It’s lucky people cannot see the
Bruises left behind.

I love the way you hug me
With embraces hard and fine.
In fact you squeeze so firmly that
I think you cracked my spine.

I love the way you run to me
When I come in the door.
Although I wish you didn’t knock me
Down onto the floor.

I love you with the whole of me,
With all the love I’ve got.
I love you, most of all,
Because I’m terrified to not.



I wanted to send all of you cards, but I didn't have your addresses. But here's what I would have sent:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
So am I
And so are you.

Happy Valentines Day

I'd offer my love,
But you wanted flowers instead.

Happy Valentines Day

I just wanted you to know that my calendar reminded me.

Happy Valentines Day

Here are some dead flowers
And candy hearts that taste like chalk.
