Happy Valentine's Day

Anyone can write mushy prose,
Heaven knows.
Valentine’s Day cards flood the store,
Filled with slushy sentiment and more.

The airwaves daily over-spill
With heart-laden and breathy trills,
Lachrymose and so poignant,
They only add to my vast annoyment.

I just can’t seem to produce
Such heart-felt effuse.
The feelings there --the warmth and care –
But my vocabulary is of no use.

In the end, I’m left,
Quiet and bereft,
With the standard line:
Be my Valentine.
