Yep, that’s right, I’m representing for Poet’s Corner Cafe this week. I didn’t receive any submissions, so I’ve decided to rock the mic myself. I don’t mind! It’s the day before Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. This will be my first Valentine’s Day without a Boo in about 4 years, but I’m not tripping. I’ve discovered that investing in me and learning to truly love myself makes every day a day to celebrate love. So that’s what this poem is about.
Sit back, grab a virtual biscotti (or a real one if you’ve got it like that) and let me drop this knowledge on you. Enjoy!
I am at peace without you
This lets me know
That the price paid for loving you
Was much too high
I was in a deficit
Lacking, hungering, wanting….
Yet continuing to give
A fool’s method of living
No return on my investment
But now I have turned
Everything I have to give within
And the dividends are flowing
Yielding, multiplying, growing…
Waiting for the moment
When a worthy opportunity arrives
Happy Valentine’s Day Y’all!
