The Day after Valentine’s.

It’s the day after Valentine’s and all is fine

The chocolates are eaten and they’ve drank the wine.

The house is quiet there is no one in

Unlike yesterday’s unholy din.

The love had lasted an hour or two

Then the wine got them talking truths as you do

Tempers got fraught and they came to blows

He broke the plates and she cut up his clothes.

She stormed out and he locked the door.

She drove the car through the window to settle the score.

The lawn is in a real mess

Covered in tyre marks and signs of distress.

The bricky and glazer are rubbing their hands

There’s plenty of work for them which is just grand.

This evening he will be home bearing flowers

There might just be peace for a couple of hours.

    This I found a little comical. The image I got in my head was entertaining. I don’t know if that was your intent but that is how I took it. It was great writing though.

    Sad but all to often true. Life isn’t always rosy. Gets you thinking….

    Great poem. The humour delivers a serious message and so apt about the fleeting love of Valentine’s Day which isn’t what the rest of the year is about. More sustainability required.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.
