Anti-Valentine’s Day

Searching
peering back
dart around the corner
shadowed
always there
get away
quickly
he is coming.
I had hoped
I really thought:
Well this year little miss
he can’t get you
there is no one around
you are safe.
Here I am though
running
terror filled
desperate to outrace him
wishing
the full moon
disappear
leave me in utter darkness.
Holy shit
little prick
who does he think he is?
Year after year
I am done with it all
I am going to stand 
Face him
Make him 
leave me the hell alone. 
Turn
head on
a deer caught in the headlights
quickly seen
hunter strides towards the hunted
lifting bow
aiming
all with that cute little moue.
Stop right there Cupid
I am done playing your stupid games
love does not exist
for me 
so please
take your bow
take your arrows 
and go find someone else to love.
Evil little thing
he smiled insincerely
sudden thwack
I jerk back
he hit me with an arrow……
again.

This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul.
