Lover's Day -------------------------------------------
The day where people make arrangements
for a romantic dinner for two. A day where
couples can cuddle by the fire and the
whisper sweet words of love and
devotion to each other.
A day where the meaning of flowers
come alive. A day that people confess
their love with a colorful bouquet of red
roses. A day when the food of love is
chocolates, caramel hearts, and strawberries.
A day that brings the goddess Venus
and her son Eros to life. A day where
Venus comes in many different disguises.
A day where Eros many turn out to be
your best friend.
A day where the arrows of love pierce
the most darkest of hearts and a with a
little help from Venus. Love will blossom.
A day that inspired love songs and poems.
A day that helps the most tongue tied
boyfriends propose to you. A day that
you might get a surprise visit from your
true love. A day where coincidence is
throw to the wind.
A day where a simple gift whether it be
a single rose or a card to someone special
can be the greatest gift of all. A day where
a kind act is the most powerful of all.
A day where you build everlasting
memories and strengthen the bonds
I think you already broke this into stanzas, but I don't know if you edited or not already so i'm gonna say that I agree with sunraybutterfly. I absolutely loved the added touch of Venus and Eros, to me, even though I don't know you, it seemed like it threw a bit of yourself into the mix. I see this really isn't much of a rhyming poem, which is awesome, because I'm glad that you pulled it off. I have major trouble when it comes to not rhyming poetry, it's so hard for me, lol. You also get your point and subject across wonderfully without even mentioning that this poem's about Valentine's day. Am I right? Well, this was very good. Keep it up.
