My heart pants for your presence
My eyes weep for your beauty
They search for it in every face they see
But wait, that's not you... it's an ugly person!
This whole damn world is ugly next to you!

You're my Number One. No one else is even close.
You're my entire Top Ten. You're my Beatles.
You're John, Paul, George and two Ringos!
You're even "1" better than the Beatles!

You are especially "specially" I can tell
You're the Batman, Superman and Aquaman as well

You're the very best Edhat articicle
You're even its smallest past participle!

You're the Cola sweetenin' my shot of Jim Beam
You're the strawberry swirlin' deep within my cream

You're the joke that's plastered all across my meme
You're the "Be right back" one I pine for in between

You're the "you" inside my sweetest dreamiest dream
You're the star player on my winning top team

You're the "try, try again" after every failed scheme
You're the shine on my diamonds making them gleam

You're the melody AND the harmony of my musical theme
And you're all three flavors of Neapolitan ice cream!

You're the powerful paddle when I'm canoeing upstream
You're the calm when I'm freakin' out to the extreme

You're the hug when all I want to do is scream
You're the fire inside me when I'm all out of steam

You're the answer to my darkness, my sunny sunbeam
You're in my every thought and want, or so it would always seem

And you're the Harpist tenderly caressing my lonely heart strings

The DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME poem I just posted is garbled. So posting is out.

Thanks for the reply, although I don't think I can change a post once posted.

And it's Daylight Saving Time, not Savings.

Valentine's Day Poem


Daylight savings time causes so much musing
Are we merely saving or are we really losing?

Put an hour in my pocket, or
Store it in a box 'n lock it

My clock lately screams its warning
And sunlight's missing in the morning

I get so flummoxed I must confess
I nearly go to work undressed!

Where do the seconds go?
How can time flow so slow?

Each one of us loses some time sometime
Are those hours snatched away in some massive crime?

Government theft 'til there are no more minutes left?
Farewell to the hour lost and solace to those left bereft!

So H T M L is stripped out, or it needs specials characters on this site. Anyway, it's impossible to post poems or writing with specific formatting. I can see it is done with articles themselves, but I've yet to publish one myself, so I haven't worked with that yet. I'm going to try and post a poem here and see what it looks like, in the next post I do.

This is a test comment to see if h t m l works for formatting.<br />Test line 2

If someone knows where the information is about how one can post, please let me know. I want to post poems sometime.

Valentine's Day Poem

OP here. People are asking me who I wrote the poem for. It is for a superhero in my story, "The Raven Tress and the Curse of Beauty." The descriptive poem below also fits the day of love motif. . .

The Raven Tress
She's five foot four and not an inch more
Precisely my size right down to the floor
(Except for our tummies, of which I have more)

Her cheeks are cherubic and so very charming
While my jowls are chubby and so scarily alarming

Her smile is so cute and utterly disarming
My frown is so mute and gutterly re-arming

Her raven black tress is so awesomely long
That it'd be "Hey Jude", if her hair was a song

She's the most ravishing beauty of whom I deeply adore
If you looked down and saw her, you could not agree more!

Does anyone else have a short poem dedicated to someone?
