A Valentines Proposal

In my more prolific moments, this would be the time of year I go into hiding.  This year I decided to bite the bullet and wrote this for  a themed fun day at work.
Although violets are blues, I’m not man city or Chelsea
Let’s be woman and man united, a book mutually exclusively read
See red wine will not be stronger than our library of love literature
If your smile is your signature, your character is your star sign.
You had with punchlines that’ll make for a ring unboxing
Your stolen heart, the lasting memory of the crime I’m plotting.
You’ve got me popping like candy, let’s taste the sky together
Set the bar so high disbelief wears suspenders.
When your heart’s beat I’ll be your sole defender
Extended play is the music that’ll make our love crescendo
You’re the curves in my jigsaw, the missing peace in my picture
If heaven is a perfect moment I want to spend life and after it with you.

Substitute Lover


Words are just words, exclusive vocab isn’t a given
Like life it’s pro created and nurtured until you can earn your own living
Make your own decisions, percolate derisions
Yet the moment they leave Christmas, they feed you new visions
A new flight path to love, for me it’s a course in collision
I recoil before the rhythm given puts a spring in my step
If it’s the thought that counts I’m a cheater in debt
Queens will put me in check
No man’s a Casanova with a King Solomon rep
It’s my heart, my mind, love equality no dominion
So to say the same words that have been said to a billion different women
I wouldn’t be surprised if she wasn’t really feeling them
If love is a lightbulb and electricity fills the filament
The voltage will be different for every individual
The switch may have been physical, or the completion of a circuit
If you’re creating a new heir with them, I’m hoping you feel they’re worth it
The next 364 I’m hoping that you persist
Tell them I love you in a way without the purse strings
See when Easter comes around with eggs and resurrection
I hope they’re a deeper level in your dreams
The 14th was no inception, deception
A touch of building maintainenance, not a temporary erection
Making music is nice but if you sing with no inflection
You can’t expect to decorate the inner sanctum if you disrespect the architecture
Your connection with your world ain’t based on your record collection
The groove you get when your need’s in tune with the belief you’re the best bet
Certainly not a gamble, it shouldn’t be chapter, let alone preamble
Drake said find your love, I say write your own song
Don’t make valentines a substitute for when the thrill of just chilling is gone

True Valentine?

Today is the day when men and women across the world are expected to declare their love and affection for each other. For some people its a very big thing as many cards, flowers meals, chocolates, jewellery and more are bought as a sign of who loves or feels stronger for who more. For others it highlights their loneliness and desire to be with a loved one or merely have some attention/ affection. Now in principle just as with the concept of Christmas, I have no intrinsic problem with a day to celebrate that powerful force, love. It is one of the most beautiful things that we have as human beings, it is a glue that keeps us sane. Yes sometimes we go crazy because of how deep our roots are but at the end of it all, if we didn’t care, no matter how twisted our logic may be at any particular time, we act on it.

My personal view is that love and romance should not be confined to one day in a year. If you can’t communicate to someone at points throughout the time that you know them prior to this day how much you feel about them, even if you are taking slow steps….you don’t have any business participating in Valentine’s day.  When the meals are eaten, flowers are dead, jewellery has become part of a collection and life has thrown you a curve ball, where is the love then? Is the affection still there? In short Valentines day should be every day through manifestations of deeds that need not have look at me all over them.

At the heart of my ponderous state this evening I wonder how many people get into a dating/ relationship situation just in time to be in a state of being loved up, made to feel wanted on Valentines day. From that group who found themselves in new relationships by Valentine’s day – how many go on past the 6 month mark into fully fledged long term relationships?  There are some people that just need their needs satisfied or even just to be part of the hype. Everyone buys into a buzz at some point but when the energy level drops ….on reflection, what does that say about you?

Is it not a case of if you don’t feel secure without a relationship you will not feel truly secure with it because two halves of a person do not make a whole relationship?  Motives, thoughts, feelings I guess
