WHOSE IDEA WAS THIS HOLIDAY ANYWAY?

 

*scroll down for a YouTube video*

 

Clickin’ and lookin’

Through my MP3

For the best-ever

Valentine song to share

Wow! What a collection

Of love songs

In my RCA

One inch by two inch

Holy grail of

Musical tales

With endless wailing

And I think about you

On this day, remembering

You were determined to

Take, break, have at

A PIECE OF MY HEART

Although I asked

Why can’t you PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR HEART?

So you handed me something on the saint’s day

Heavy like lead, and

Inside the HEART SHAPED BOX

Barely beat my rupturing GYPSY HEART

Tapping out the rhythm to the word “run”

It was a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART

And I knew

You

Would never

STOP DRAGGIN’ MY HEART AROUND

Always a HEART BREAKER

And I helplessly watched

As my HEART OF GLASS

Shattered noiselessly

To the floor…

  1. “Give crowns and pounds and guineas. But not your heart away;. Give pearls away and rubies. But keep your fancy free.” A. E. Houseman. But the heart never learns. Well, maybe part of life is having one’s heart broken a few times; maybe it’s part of some deep strengthening of the immune system.
