My Valentine

by Miriam Hurdle

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.

(Ceramic piece painted by Miriam Hurdle)

It was serendipity that we met.

Summer had not stated yet, but

It was the final week of school.

I decided to go to

This group met at home.

We chatted, we snacked.

You asked what I did for fun,

I smiled, didn’t answer the question.

Then flexed the arm to show my muscles,

Under your shirt were bigger muscles.

You looked at me with a smile,

You worked out also for quite a while.

The whole night, I didn’t see other guys’ faces,

You occupied my entire mind’s spaces.

Time was flying by and we said “Good night.”

I knew I was in love with you at the first sight.

No more home meetings in summer, but

You had my phone number.

Remember our first date?

We went to the gym on a late Sunday.

  1. Really liked the “winding way” through the evening and your descriptions of excitement and fun. Laughed at first date at the gym. Really? Fun read.
