For the days after Valentine’s

This is for those who showed the utmost love yesterday,
This is for those that bought/got chocolates and flowers and huge teddy bears,
This is for those that planned the most romantic dinners,
this is for those that treated their loved ones to massages, spa treatments, and breakfasts in bed,
This is for those that had an unforgettable day,
This is for those that felt absolutely special yesterday,
This is for those that are still in a “love coma”

But No.

Because this is really for those that don’t care about Valentine’s day,
Those people who cannot stand the pressure of the day,
Those people who are not able to live up to the perfection that they think Valentine’s is about,
Those people who would rather spend the day watching TV with a glass of wine.

And for those people who believe that Valentine’s day is really about ALL loved ones and sharing love with family and strangers,

But not really.

Because this is actually for all of us;
those who think feb 14th is a special day,
and those who think its just another day of the year,
those who love all year round
and those who love the hardest on this day.

But most importantly, this is for those who were disappointed yesterday,
Who did not spend the day the way they wanted,
Who could not spend the day with who they wanted.

Don’t you worry, tomorrow’s another day.
Love hard everyday in your own unique.

The challenge set by Blog Creatifa is to Write a poem about what inspired you to start your blog or what motivates you to keep blogging.

So here goes…

There once was a little girl who found life and friendships in the pages of books… Who’s very enthusiastic response to the question “what would you like as a birthday present?” was always “A book”.

See, her family moved around a lot and so, while this little girl couldn’t hold on to physical friendships for long periods, her friends came alive in the pages of all her books and pretty soon, she started to come up with her own characters.

People that shared adventures and fun times with her, they became real to her, these weren’t like voices in her head, she wasn’t crazy lol… But she started to write, every time and every where.

She wrote to entertain herself,
She wrote to release herself,
She wrote to express herself;
to shed/share her joys, pains, frustrations.
She wrote to give words to feelings that couldn’t be easily expressed by everyone.
She wrote to transport people from their reality into a beautiful, make-believe world.
That little girl grew up to be me.

So why do I write?

Simply because I cannot not write.
