Valentine

Valentine’s day approaches… and even though our love is not aligned, it’ll be alright. For even as I feel, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being confident that love is all around even if it is for just a second. Heartache, disappointment… all these follow, but whichever way the weight of the scale tilts, love will be there. And even as I feel the way I do right now, no doubt someday love will prevail.

until I listened to my heart,
it rained
effusive sorrow
clandestine pain
long suppressed
amidst this hurricane
camouflaged pretension
where battles brew
volcanoes erupt
and I can no longer depend
on hope for change
only in these pocket-size
dimes and nickles
enough for the slot
to park the car
an hour, maybe two
across the lot
