Valentine’s Day – A Quirky One

large

Casually strolling around,
Her “red” diary I found.
Clicked my mind quickly,
I started working.
Intriguing!
Surreptitious!

Her poems and prose
Her lilies and rose
An entry caught my attention
My name with a bold mention?
A warm chuckle!
Butterflies flying!

Words like ‘cupid’ and ‘valentine’,
Adjectives like ‘magnetic’ and ‘divine’,
Kissed the page with fervour.
Avidly, I devoured.
Heavens thanked!
A cornucopia of butterflies flying!

I tranced into a parallel world
Pouring lilies and flying birds.
Blooming was cloud nine,
As I knew she was mine.

Suddenly, my mouth dropped
As if the world had stopped.
All the feelings had been fake
‘Cause the guy was my namesake.
A fading smug!
Butterflies dying!
Butterflies dying!!

Pain pinched my heart
Like a sharp pointed dart
The adjectives were for him
Sorrow overflowed at the brim.
Heavens cursed!
A cornucopia of butterflies dying!

Suddenly she came in
Wearing the most beautiful smile
Ironically, I forgot all my worries
And wished her “Happy Valentine’s”
Again, heavens thanked!
But, no butterflies this time!! 😛

Happy Valentine’s day people! I hope your day doesn’t go like this. 😛
