I owe you my Valentine

Tis the worst Valentine I had
Tis the first time I’d hoped,
Had chopped away diligently
The layers of crust surrounding my soul..

Tis the first moonbeam
That has entered my scream,
It was not easy to die
amidst shattered dreams..

T’was the trust of a child
Betrayed by adult fantasy,
Go on now..begone..do not cling
to broken wings of ecstasy…
