Anti Valentine’s Day Poem

anti valentines day poem


On Valentine’s Day each year, lovers up and down the land
Try to impress each other, with the sweet things they have planned.
They sit in fancy restaurants, or dine in for a tenner for two
And inscribe a generic card with the message ‘I love you!’

On the surface this is lovely, but let’s look at the bigger picture;
When it comes to love in my life, it’s every day that I want to feel richer.
Why should we simply confine ourselves to a pre-determined date,
That has nothing to do personally with myself or my soulmate.

I don’t need a bunch of flowers, as I hate to watch them die.
I don’t need a pointless card, that you grabbed quickly, on the fly.
I don’t need a little trinket, that will sit and gather dust.
I don’t need expensive dinners, as I’m really not that fussed.

I don’t need a brand of perfume that I simply will not wear.
I don’t need some chocolate body paint, as you shouldn’t put that there!
Chocolate’s just for eating, and I can buy that for myself
And I don’t need another pot plant, to sit needily on my shelf.

I don’t need a new bonkbuster, designed to get me in the mood.
I don’t need impractical underwear, where I may as well be nude.
I don’t need a bottle of bubbly, or a sparkly diamond ring
And in fact, if I am honest, I don’t physically need a thing.

But what I would like more of, are smiles and kisses each day
And those moments of gentle tenderness, that say more than words can say.
I want to feel connected, and to look into your eyes
And I long to feel the happiness, of those flirty butterflies.

So I am not anti-valentines, but here is what I’ll do;
Not just this day each year, but every single day, for you
I’ll show you how I feel for you with the actions that I take!
Love is more than a feeling, it’s something magical we make.
