Forever valentine #poem

Arms long enough to wrap around my neck
Yet I cuff hugs from strangers who won’t call my bluff
Hold many hands with my outstretched limbs
Go home to pizza and TV

Write of solitude and heartache galore
Dream of soulmates who bake and tan on the shore
Fingers interlocked, the remote lost in the couch
Blink twice, only I am here all slouched

Enough of yearning and pity they say
My stomach is burning, this romcom’s too gritty
This year I’ve chosen my forever valentine
To be me, myself, all mine.
