my unsolicitedValentine's Day wish for you

my love,


quit waiting

on someone else


to finally love you

the way that

you deserve

to be loved


you only

get so much

time here


quit wasting it

on people who

can't recognize

a masterpiece of

creation when it's

standing right in front

of them


you only get

so many spins

on this planet


quit squandering the ride

on people who fail to see

the breadcrumb trail to the cosmos

in your eyes


my love,

in case you were still wondering:


~ you are a once-in-a-million-year wonder


and it's past time

for you to only

spend your days

with people who need

to catch their breath

whenever you walk

into a room


my love,

if someone

doesn't hold

you like a precious

gemstone


they aren't worthy

of feeling the heat of

your reflecting light

against their skin


you are the rarest

treasure existence

has ever known


and if they don't

tremble when they

touch you


they aren't

the one


oh, my love,

please remember


you are a

Rembrandt

in a sundress


whose image burns

itself on the inside

of our eyelids


you are a miracle

of grace and fire


that angel

play trumpets for


you are the first

watermelon of the summer

~sweet

~light

~soul-quenching


don't you dare

let anyone else

treat you any less

than the marvel

you were so carefully

designed to be
