I wanted to see what makes a human heart
beat,
so I took a scimitar and ripped apart your decrepit
flesh,
and inside that primordial ribcage I found nothing but
corruption.

And you merely gave a cruel parody of a
smile,
dug your bloodstained claws into your
chest,
and tore out that infestation you called a
soul.

"Analyze that well, my little necromancer," you
sneered,
fangs dripping with the acid I once begged to
taste,
"Perhaps you'll be as wise as me once you find the
pulse."

I could only watch as you sunk back down into
Hell,
clutching that contaminated Philosopher's Stone
hazardously,
knowing you had replaced my heart with the poison known as
'l o v e.'
Who said all Valentine's Day poems had to be romantic and sappy?

Just my contribution to what is possibly the worst holiday ever. An attempt at horror, somewhat, while playing around with some personal opinions on romance. Because believe me, I've yet to have delved into that lovely sea. Still a lone fishy over here.

Edit: I was wondering why I was getting so many faves on this...it made the front page. Thanks. But again...I don't understand why, this one wasn't very good. :| Oh well.

I will be a lonely fishy too, then... I honestly hope that you find the love you're looking for. I do. And this is such an awesome twist in writing for a Valentine's Day poem! I prefer this to the sappy ones :3

((Valentine's Day... I get mixed feelings about that day. I don't believe that people only have that one day just to do something romantic for their loved ones. What's stopping them from getting them roses/chocolates/etc. for that special person? The fact that this holiday is for romantic purposes?

I'll never understand it... But I really like this poem. Also... Prepared to be spammed. By me. Commenting. And faving. :la:))
