A Lone Valentine

A tear drops

Color splatters

๐Ÿ’”

A single red rose

Babyโ€™s breath

Extinguished

๐Ÿ’”

Sun swept hair

Sparkling sapphire eyes

Now, smoldering grey

๐Ÿ’”

Silk dress, pure

Now, crimson stained

๐Ÿ’”

A lone Valentine

๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

My apologies as this is not a happy or loving poem for Valentineโ€™s Day. But when I wrote it I always wondered what those who didnโ€™t have Valentines or loves in their lives felt like on this celebratory day of love would feel like.
