Hundreds of unseen messages,
A dozen calls unanswered, and
Plenty of unread mails ended in
A night’s drinking and a
Couple of bets gone wrong,
Watching romantic movies on a loop,
From Titanic to Casablanca,
The Vow to Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Giving ways to dreamy sighs and
And frustrated cries,
Hearing Damien Rice on repeat,
Singing along off key but with
The same longing and love
That rises after reading
Jane Austen at night, and
Waking up thinking of the
Magic created by Charlotte Brontë,
Having memorised all the
Love poems by heart, till my
Energy was drained and all
My emotions rained, but
Cupid still won’t return my calls!

A chilly evening,
With a hot cup of coffee
In my hands, I breathe in
The warmness of my blanket
And look outside the window
To see
Lovers loving,
To feel the
Sheets moving, and,
I start to
Read about Mr. Darcy,
Smile at Emma’s giggling,
Cry for Heathcliff and
Fight for Jane’s virtue and
Feel Romeo’s pain and
As I keep turning the
Pages of these
Stories of love, pain,
Joy and vain,
I think to myself,
“I know I’ve found my Valentine.”
