When one falls in love some fall whole-heartedly, some half-heartedly. Take your pick.

A Gem.

Your heart is hard,
Dark, cold as flint,
My love you disregard,
No love spark, nary a glint;
Has your heart gone on strike?

Your heart I sought
But it’s buried deep,
I quarried for naught,
Have a heart, it’s going cheap,
In two bits, just as you like.

Your heart you guard
Like the Federal mint,
My heart you’ve scarred,
I can take a dropped hint;
You’re going to take a hike.

  1. No peeking, not me, really I would never peek. Now, should a coquettish wind happen to riffle a few pages as I’m passing, well.. look… Truth is, Valentine’s is coming up and this is a little maudlin revisiting of those rose-tinted then red misted bad old days. As someone almost says ‘and so woe goes.’
