valentine’s day wish…

ooh… honey
i wish i was
one of those channeling folks
you know
that spiritualism thing
where i could have a civil conversation
with someone to help me write a love poem
but without that voodoo trance thing
lord knows i see that enough on sunday
but honey i would love that automatic writing
from someone like browning
or that mary shelly woman
to help me say
all the things you mean to me
that kind of materialization wouldn’t upset me
one little bit
just words of love flowing from my pen
but as you know
that ain’t gonna happen
so here’s your box of chocolates
same as last year
not the gift but the giver
oh…and i’m sorry bout the missing piece
but you know
how i love
chocolate covered


The above poem grew out of a question posed by Mirella . Vist her blog!

  1. oh I love it! it is such a cute/shy poem and yet so strong!

    I think chocolate says it all, you don’t need to say no more:)

    And thank you so much for adding the link to my blog. I was so happily surprised by your gesture! thank you Slpmartin, you made my day!
    Happy Valentine’s!
    oh… and enjoy your chocolate covered cherries!
    I am gonna enjoy my molten chocolate now:)
