Poem - Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day - Anup R

Lying here staring at the ceiling
Trying to make sense of what I’m feeling
I thought I’d accepted that it’s all over
I thought I’d moved on
But, now I’m not too sure

Coz, it’s Valentine’s Day
And to my utter dismay
Fond memories flood my senses
And drive me to my knees

The frustration gets to my head
Something’s gotta give!
I just wanna live!
Your face no longer do I wanna see!
I just wanna be free!
So, I crazily pound the bed
Till the fists ache
Till the heart feels its gonna break
Till I’m knocked senseless ….

And as I’m drifting into oblivion
I ask myself the obvious question …

Why am I …
Still madly in love?
Still missing you?
Still paying for my crime?
Still a poet searching for his rhyme?

(Hugs Anup, even though it's just a virtual hug) Even though we can't always spend Valentines the way we wish and hope it to be, even though Valentines brings back the worst memories, remember that Valentines Day is for the people you love, especially those around you.

Happy Valentines Day! May God bless the people whom you love and care so much! And God bless you, too! Take care!

okay...happy MOVE on day...must move on....otherwise, you can't love another person.....only crime is that you REFUSE to let go....

love takes times..gees too bad you don't understand thai. they have great breakup and move on songs..

take care!!! :)

loving someone is hard on the knees..

to forget someone you loved (love??) is never an option.

Hiya all! Wish u all a very Happy Valentine's Day!

@ivy
thanks! ... I was just into one of my melancholic moods ... but that has already passed

@CTiger
thanks ... hugs are always welcome ... even if they're virtual ;)

yes, one of the problems of the holidays is that they bring back repressed memories ... they make the singles (who've had their heart broken) aware of their loneliness ... But u r right.. rather than bother with the ones who are out of my life, I shld be loving the ones who stuck with me through rough times ... who are still around ... and I'll do just that today!

@elaine
thanks for that OTS (one tight slap) :) U r a good friend!

I needed that! ... as I said above, it was just a mood swing .. i snapped out of it very soon ... but i did get that one poem out of it!

... and I'm listening to a bunch of those songs ... for instance, "You'll See by Madonna" .. and of course "Beauty from Pain by Superchic"

@SFO
yes, it is hard on the kness! :) ... and while one may never forget somone one has loved, the trick is to not go on those nostalgic trips too often ... at the cost of the ones who are with u .. who still care about you ...

---
I know what I should be doing ... but, once in a while (like when i wrote the poem) I give in to the temptation of going on such a emo-trip ... Sorry to drag u guys along for the ride ...

Have a gr8 day u all!

hi anup :) well, i hope i could give you encouragement. i think you figure out that i'm a bold and direct person. not everyone can accept that....only if everything was really okay...

i was thinking about a few people when i wrote the post. remember you're not alone :)

The poem is beautiful...
Someone once said,
If you wanna a rainbow in your life
You'll have to put up with the rain

Hope you find your rainbow soon!

@CAddict
Good 4 u girl! All da very best 2 u and ur sweetie! :)

@Elaine
I not only accept that, but I also appreciate the honesty and straight-forwardness. Thanks again buddy! :)

@Roshomon
I hope so too ... a rainbow needs the sun to shine while its raining ... I hope the dark clouds are swept away from the life of every lover and that the sun shines thru the rain and gives all the lovers, the hope and strength to carry on loving ...
Thanks Roshomon ... :)

:) ... lolz ... yup ... I am a charming guy, with lovely dimples that brighten up my face everytime I smile (and I do smile a lot!) ... and I do make others smile a lot with whacky PJs and smart alec comments ... :)

Unfortunately, while girls become friends with me very easily, and find me a very good conversationalist (coz' i actually listen!) ... the ones I really like are either in relationships ... or worse, are not looking for one ... :(
