Valentine’s Day Blues

Tears streamed down his face again

As Valentine’s Day approached;

For on that day a year ago

David’s heart had been crushed.

His Valentine had ditched him then

And mated with his foe;

It had taken him a really long time

To recover from this blow.

So, David vowed to shun this day

But Fate had other plans,

For he consented to a Blind Date theme:

A dinner and a dance.

And there she was in front of him

A damsel blessed with grace;

‘Twas her smile our hero loved the best

It beautified her face.

They strolled out together arm in arm,

Two strangers so in love;

He whispered sweet nothings to her

Then presented a clay dove.

“Take this bird and remember me,”

David told his Valentine;

“For I shall be forever yours,

And, my dear, you shall be mine.”

This is one of the best poems I've written and I thought up the entire thing during one sleepless night. Yes sleepless in Mumbai can do wonders.
