I Wish Valentines Day Is Just Another Day
i wish Valentines Day, is just a product of the creative imagination of poets and creatives alike to generate monetary compenstion and to further their pursuit of recognition and epic breakthrough but it isn’t.
and so this day, is just another epic day reminder “whatever happened to us?” another day for regrets and blame throwing “where did i go wrong?” another day for what if’s and what could have been’s just another day.
i wish Valentines Day, is just a product of the creative imagination of poets and creatives alike so that i won’t be sitting here alone counting the years and counting the times it could have been me your celebrating Valentines Day with over romantic dinner in a fancy restaurant but it wasn’t me.
and so this day, is just another day full of remorse and guilt had i been brave enough to fight for my love would i ended up holding your hand today? another day to feel sorry for all that i was and all that i failed to do just another day.
i wish Valentines Day, is just another ordinary day so that i don’t need to go through over and over again, feeling the pain of not being the one chosen, of not being the one loved of not being the one you celebrated Valentines Day with, for the last years or so.
I’m sipping my cappucino, quietly enjoying the bitter after taste, with our favorite song playing on the radio when I remember how I first met you you were smiling, probably the sweetest smile I had ever seen, and I was terrified for a minute or so
hey man, there was something about you in your faded jeans and awkward white fitted shirt, you were a rock n roll star coming out from a backstage party after a concert, only that you were not, but something ’bout you ’bout you looking like a rock n roll star
there was something ’bout you the way you made me laugh and the way you made me half crazy, half crazy for always wanting to be near you you spoke with confidence you smiled with arrogance you walked with swag something ’bout you ’bout you looking like a rock n roll star
you were a star, just enough for me to go mad like a crazy fan girl your small space was your centerstage your friends, your one time audience you were just being you and I was half crazy, half crazy something ’bout you ’bout you looking like a rock n roll star
and as I finish my cappucino, I can’t help but smile, ‘cos there’s really something ’bout you, after all, you still gorgeously look like a rock n roll star in your faded jeans and awkward fitted white shirt, and I am still terrified hey, baby your my kind of rock n roll star and I am your mad half crazy fan girl
tell me the good in the morning when there ain’t around you smilin’ with a cup of crisp, nutty fresh americano, perfectly paired with sweet, bitter chocolate cookie, and the crunchiness of crispy, chewy almond nut tell me the good in the evening when there ain’t around you to kiss me goodnight
’til I fall magically asleep in the warmth of your loving arms tell me the good in all that I do when there ain’t you to share it with tell me as I pray tell me as I hope tell me as I wish tell me as I navigate upon the realm of dreams and fantasy tell me, you’ll be there in my reality

You hit me the hardest, wounded deeply Break my soul and destroy my spirit Crushed me down and left me bleeding Why do you love me so much? And treat me so damn kind? Yet, breaks my being Tear me apart? Why do I Love you Still?
It’s Over Yet I feel Deep in my heart I long and I cry By my side, you will be Friends, let’s not be! Oh hear me Listen to what I say, dear, please My soul wants you, my heart desires you Forever this will be, yours faithfully.
