This excuse for a holiday fills me with dread,
Pink hearts and flowers all around,
Someone should burn them to the ground.
The lovely couples all so caring,
Please do try to keep from sharing,
For goodness sake get a room,
This terrible holiday will be my doom.
Flowers die, and chocolate goes fast,
Get jewelry if you want it to last,
I guess I should say "be my valentine"
But I think you know where you can shove that line.

The sun was setting and the cool February sky was bathing them with a warm pink glow. The cool blast of air from the open train door as passengers got on and off the stationary train was a mild irritant but only drew more attention to the soft, drowsy aura of warmth surrounding the seated passengers.
The satisfaction of the completed case had made Sherlock unusually relaxed, and he slouched into the soft woollen cocoon of his coat, eyes scanning the other passengers in a lazily observant manner.
"Alright John," He murmured. "The two men over there. Which one of them is the teacher? Go."
John smiled slightly as they continued their 'game'. "Right . . . they're both reading the children's exercise books . . . but the dark-haired one is actually marking them. He's the teacher."
"Excellent. And what subject are the books on?"

and a dozen roses are bought
I'd rather sleep through
this day I dread
because the one I wanted to share it with
has their own special some one
Don't ask me if I have
a valentine in mind
I don't want
a diamond ring that shines
or a secret
I love you
So don't remind me
about the day
that I can't go out to play
without that stupid emotion-

Valentine's DayMy pumpkin spice latte was too sweet, but my voice was too bitter. As I stared into the murky depths of my cardboard cup, I said, “We’re both single for Valentine’s Day this year.”Valentine's Day8 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I didn’t know why I said it. Maybe I thought she would laugh. Maybe I thought she would show at least a little amusement, a smile that would reassure me that everything was Finally Okay and not depressed and sobbing and curled up on the futon. But she was silent.
I looked up. She, too, was staring into her plastic cup of bubble tea, avoiding my eyes. “Right?” I asked. “Mom?”
Her eyes still didn’t meet mine. She sipped through the excessively hot pink straw, intensely interested by the shop’s colourful decor instead of by me.
Propping my elbows on the table, I dropped my head in my hands. “Jesus, Mom.”
“What?” she asked finally.

I don't follow the bloody books
No I don't want to hold your hand
Enough with the pity looks!
I don't need a guy to be happy
No, not a chick either
When it comes down to the two of them,
I am just fine without either
Stop chasing me with Cupid's arrow,
No I don't want to hold your rose,
Thanks but I am allergic to Hallmark
Why?! Because I don't own any pink clothes!
Keep your chocolate kisses
And crappy on-the-spot rhymes
If you're going to stand and gawk at me
I'm leaving, keep your stupid valentines.
I AM FINE HERE ON MY OWN!
So please get out of my head!
My heart is still only healing,
And falling for another is something I dread.

Anti-ValentineEvery rose may have its thorn, but unfortunately not every thorn has its rose. Such is the case with Valentines Day, a day destined to make you profoundly uncomfortable, whether you are in a relationship, swinging through singledom or somewhere in between. If youre dating, February 14th becomes a kind of romantic pissing contest. Inevitably, someone is the romance winner and someone is the despicable romance loser who must spend the next 364 days atoning for his or her paltry offering of daisies, babys breath and musical card. Romeo chugged some Drano for love so in the spirit of competition, Juliet must off herself with a rusty butter knife. The only bright spot in all this coagulate gore is that neither one of them will have to shop at the Hallmark store ever again.Anti-Valentine6 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

His black, ebony eyes met those of white, ivory ones. The silver sparkle in hers made him want to swoon. That was an odd feeling for him, since beauty had once before mesmorized him, but not just the look in one's eyes. They did not blink, but a blush creeped across her face. He, who was never shy, and never blushed, even showed pink crawling across his face slowly. It took all of her will-power to not look down and study her feet, as though her sandals had just become very fastenating. He looked straight into her ivory eyes and blinked, breaking his akward stare. She finally droped her eyes quickly and pushed her fingers together, as if doing so would make her disapear. He took his bandaged hand and curled it around her jaw, lifting her head up and her eyes open all at once. She couldn't believe it, he was wanting something from her, though. She knew it by the glint in his eyes.

Lies the day we all fear.
It sneaks up to our homes,
Hiding in bushes and dodging garden gnomes.
"Not scary," you think,
"Disguised in pink."
Then it hits you like a stone.
You're all alone!
No one to date,
No one to hug,
No one to kiss,
No one to love.
For comfort, call on your mates.
Then remember that they all have dates.
What to do, what to say?
How to make this pain go away?
Lock yourself in your room
And wait for your eventual doom.
And to everyone out there,
All the lovers,
Happy Valentine's Day...
You stupid buggers.

Where nothing goes quite my way
There's no one special giving me a 'tine
No one asking me to "be mine"
Alone I wander the halls at school
No one to hold hands with
No boy to call my own
No one, at least, in this town
So what can I do?
Doesn't any boy out there
Have even a little crush on me?
If so, who can it possibly be?
I'm wasting my time
On these days of valentine.

We had dreams
We had only us forever
So it seemed.
We were young
We were new
It had only been three months
But are love grew
You swore you'd never give up
And I did the same for you
Now I'll always remember the pain of surprise
When you told me that we're through
What could I say?
What could I do?
How will I ever find the strength
To say goodbye to you?
Where will I go?
When will it end?
Who can I trust to take me through
And help me start again?
Yet my heart will not believe that it's the end.
I walked the line
You changed your mind
It's the end of Valentine.
That was Christmas
This is now.
Just before the midnight hour
And I think
Of how you're gone
How this should've been the perfect day
Now I sit here alone.
And my heart just will not give up
And the pain's still like a knife
And it's killing me even more to know that
You're moving on with your life
What could I say?
What could I do?
How will I ever find the strength

Hand-in-hand late at night
I think Ill go anti-valentine
For at least one more year
But dont think for a minute
That I will shed a single tear

But dont you worry a bit
If I see couples and red roses
I promise not to throw a fit
Im not crazy, its just natural
For me to be anti-valentine
Because this year yet again

What the hell is all that shit for?
People get mushy and start acting queer,
It is definitely the most annoying day of the year.
This day needs to get the hell over with and pass,
Before I shove something up Cupid's ass.
I'll spend the day so drunk I can't speak
And wear black for the rest of the week.
Guys act all sweet, but soon it will fade,
For all they are doing is trying to get laid.
The arrow Cupid shot at me must not have hit,
Cause I think this love thing is a crock of shit.
So, here's my story... what else can I say?

I don't know what love is
I've never felt it
How do I know I've never felt love?
It's something you just know
I'm obsessive, sure, and I cling to an idea
But I've never had a deep emotional attachment
I know you'd like to believe that I love you
And to some extent, I do,
But I can never give you the things you want
Because I'm not sure I have them to give
Those who give their hearts
Are destined for heartache
While those whose hearts are stolen
Fall helplessly into love
Like lemmings from a cliff
Love is blind, so you can't set your sights on it
It cannot be pinpointed
It cannot be forced
You can't make it happen through force of will
And you can't change a person's heart
Every man, woman, and androgyne* born
Has a name written on their heart
And if that's not you, there isn't anything you can do
Love is a predator
It lies in ambush and springs when least expected
Love never gives you a choice
And once you fall prey, you're in it for the long haul

Through the wind and the rain, Timmy stood there on the hundred foot stone wall staring down at his godfather's pleading face. He saw the arms outstretched, begging for him to come back. Cosmo's eyes bore into him leaving him breathless from the desperation they were showing. Hidden in those emerald eyes was a love and passion that he had only read in books. Tears ran down his godfathers face like he was the one facing death. He was unaffected by the weather. His body held strong as he continued to reach out to him. What he had said was running through Timmy's mind though he couldn't bring himself to speak.
Tears of something other than sadness ran down Timmy's face. The hole in his heart suddenly filled with a strange anticipation. So much in fact, he almost smiled. His heart continued to ache, though for an entirely different reason.
His mouth moved to its own accord as he whispered aloud, "My reason...?"

It was either dusk or dawn; I can’t remember which—the light was in a temporary stalemate with the darkness, and there was the faint promise or impression of stars, coming or going, led or shepherded by the moon looking as though it had been slightly erased from the deep, middling blue of the sky. There were no clouds.
I didn’t notice her coming until I heard the scuffing of her shoes. I was glad I could only hear one set of footsteps: she’d heeded my request. Turning, I felt in my pocket for the square of tightly folded paper, passed it over without a word, trying to converse through our eye contact. I went home without looking back, silent.
