My beautiful one,
How I desire to hold you…
Damn this straitjacket.
St. Valentine’s Day,
Or Single Awareness Day?
With you, the former.
To me, asking,
“Will you be my Valentine?”
on the anniversary of a saint’s beheading
is like asking,
“May I cut your head from your spine?”
It just doesn’t have that same romantic ring.
Some call February 14th, “Single Awareness Day.”
Some find this depressing.
But for the strongly independent,
We don’t need to tell someone, “You complete me.”
Each of us already is complete.
What’s so depressing about that?
