Valentine’s Day

I walked along the road
Looking at the couples go by

I hurried along
Quickened my pace
Must go faster

Into the store
Passed the flowers
Passed the balloons
Passed the cards
And all the little candies too

I only need milk for my tea
Now…the walk home

Passed the couples kissing
Passed those holding hands
Passed the “I love you”s
That seem to fill
The entire land

I slam the door behind me
If only I had not forgotten the milk
I could have saved myself from the feelings
I should feel, but can’t
