pardon valentine


we park your car
at the side of the bridge
and drifting like balloons
on air we are flying
inseparable and touching
each skins is not our sins

we seek to pardon
valentine when we feel
alone and amuse ourselves
with black coffee and
science fiction novels

too ambiguous are
the words we utter when
we fall prey to the seriousness
of drinking too much wine
and sleeping together naked
with the lights on

too much in love and
we count the days and
nights until we realized
that soon we will be
together all the time

    I don’t know how you do it- you somehow manage to avoid cliches when writing about love, but still to write so universally that we, your readers, know emotionally and immediately what you mean.

  2. Nice reference to the martyr St. Valentine, who died defending love. Great poem!
