Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Watch me tear
your dove in two.
I wrote this about 10 years ago and I know it’s short and strange but I think about it every year and remind myself that I like it. I work full time but last week I also lost every evening and my whole weekend (to wonderful friendship and awesome memories, but still – no writing was done). Working harder on getting projects half-done so that they’re less work for me to polish them. Will let you know how that goes!
I challenged myself to come up with a traditional Valentines Day poem but to make it sound as heartbroken as possible. I won’t over-explain as it’s only tiny, but let me know what you think!
