About the Poem

This poem is for those of us who get tired of the traditionally happy Valentines day. Although a sad tone is used here, it is mostly about someone finding the strength to not settle for less than what they deserve.

this poem is very good i too get tired of hearing about the traditional happy fairy tale ending and like to read a poem that is for once realistic. good job.

THIS IS A VERY GOOD POEM.

I can really relate to this poem. I had a fairytale romance that was so seamless. It was almost too perfect. The man of my dreams filled to the brim with honesty and loyalty. Too bad I found that out and got too close too late (but it happened so quickly). I believed our mutual friend whom we met through. That was the biggest mistake of my life. I let that friend manipulate me. His intentions were malicious because he had wanted me for himself. He sabotaged the relationship. The only difference between me and this poem is that I want that Valentine. But, if he cannot accept me for being human and making mistakes he is not the Valentine for me. It's sad though.

To My Valentine

Once upon
A time
There was
Truth to the
Myth of what
You
And I
Had found
In a blank paged
Fairy tale.

Snow White
Doesn't sleep
In a casket made of
Glass
Slippers will break
If you wear them.

Walk across this
Written word
With fingers
Gently
Seeking
Loving
You
And me
No more.

He loves
Me
He loves me!
Not
Enough.

To:
My Valentine
Will you
Be mine
No longer . . .
