This is my ode

To Valentines Day

Hearts and roses

I wish would decay

Blushes and smiles

Kisses and hugs

Let me puke now

Please hand me the drugs

Being sedated

Just seems so sweet

Compared to this folly

The "love so concrete"

I know you must think

I'm cold-hearted (it's true)

To say such things

To lovers like you

Yet you depress me with pink

Each kiss you take

Makes me more nauseous

A rose-nightmare in my wake

Somehow I survive the

Day by name valentine

Even with candy hearts

Sayings "will you be mine"

All these sweets

And candy treats

Lovesick eyes

Stomach butterflies

How is it I live?

Will I endure?

A day devoted

To love so obscure
