Valentine’s Day Poem

It’s this time of year again. To help commemorate it I made this poem. The theme is about being alone on Valentine’s Day. My only stipulation with writing this poem was that it had to be twenty lines. Haha, this poem really describes me pretty well. Enjoy.

Alone on Valentine’s day

I’ll just go to my bed and do nothing but lay

Clearly there is no better way

To keep all those ooey-gooey lovers at bay

I’ll open my laptop and a tub of ice cream

It’s not as depressing as it seems

This is the life, this is the dream

If I get one more love note I’ll just scream

Yes, my soul was sucked out long ago

Every girl dresses up like a hoe

And all these cupids are my foe

Valentine’s day was invented to make people feel low

Girls weep when they don’t get a card

I’ll just stay tucked in, safe away from the bards

Even if I go out I’ll have to keep up my guard

It’s safer if I get my flowers from the yard

But what is this

These two anime characters just shared a kiss

Like stone turning to gravel

My heart begins to unravel.

Sonnet

This week in my creative writing class we strayed away from our short stories and worked on poetry. One of the poems we did was a type of shakespearean sonnet where you insult your lover.
It’s an interesting concept to make a poem list the faults you have with someone. Of course, the ending makes up for it by giving them a lovey dove couplet.

I, of course, made my sonnet for my one and only true love haha.

So on to the prompt: Make a poem that makes fun of someone or something and follow this rhyme scheme- ababcdcdefefegg while the last stanza (the gg) begins with “And yet,.”

For your enjoyment: Lelouch vi Brtiannia

I honestly don’t remember how we met
Our meeting so unmemorable it seems
I think I was surfing youtube on the internet
I didn’t know that you’d drive my sanity to the extremes

It’s because of you I lost so much sleep
Some many times you left me hanging there
The seeds of despair were sowed and I had to reap
This relationship wasn’t even close to fair

I cried all night when the curtain closed
After you for a week I couldn’t eat
I was left completely indisposed
How did you manage this feat?

And yet, for so many reasons I’ll love you always
You’ll be in my heart for the rest of my days
