happy valentine's day to me

happy valentine’s day to me

by debi lyn 02/14/22


I've cared & cared so much; tis true,

But who have you ever been true to?


I've tried & tried so much it hurts,

but what effort have you put forth?


I'm done, so done, or so I say. But to my dismay,

I'm sure I'll stray again one day & pay to play it all your way.


Why can't I just make it all go away to stay!?



Without feeling like my insides are being forced

out thru every pore, tearing me to shreds

until there's nothing more, nothing at all left of me....

Zero to a million is the score.

I guess that’s just par for my course.
