Valentine x


On the foot of my stair case

For the post

Hoping I will get at least one card

Letters come tumbling down

My heart leaps

I ran fast

Grabbing the pile of cards

I hunt hopelessly

Only valentine cards for my beautiful sister

I feel a familiar sensation

Of my heart breaking

I furiously chuck her cards in the bin

I scream

My lungs bursting out of me

I collapse on the floor

Tears rolling down

Uncontrollable and unstoppable

With shaky fingers

I take out my compact mirror

My revolting reflection staring back at me

No one would ever want to be my valentine

But you know what?

I’m still hoping
