lonely hearts (for root and ananke)
wendz

we are all bleeding, lonely hearts
 1
and valentine mocks us
 2
with her black pvc bondage uniforms,
 3
rose kisses and cheap adverts.
 4
 
 
sure, commercialisation sucks
 5
but so does being alone -
 6
no one writes songs for
 7
arthouse works in progresses,
 8
no one thinks about mashing up bovine aortas
 9
and forming heart shaped valentines
 10
in the hope that somehow,
 11
two pinpricks of light will meet
 12
and become a mister and missers root,
 13
or a missers and mister ananke.
 14
 
 
forget about me,
 15
i'm either the ugliest msn picture ever,
 16
or a beautiful fraud;
 17
either way, my best friend thinks i smell weird.
 18
 
 
what's an odd valentine's image, she asked me.
 19
perhaps i should have told her that an asian girl
 20
going commando to a dinner on friday'd be weird.
 21

to all my lonely, weeping hearts - look for me in the classifieds!

Amazing diction
 — xerda

thanks wendz.
 — unknown

love it :) but there should be no "forget about me"! that whole strophe is poshcocky.
 — Ananke

girls go commando?

that's news to me!

yep, its good, i especially like line 9.  festive viscerium conglomerate!

i agree w/ananke 'cept i don't know what poshcocky means.

i think it means 'you should not give a half-arsed fart what other people think of you, that sort of thinking never did anyone any good.'

thanks for the pome wendy

"a beautiful fraud" - I really like that. It's stuck with me.
 — Tinkers

It's great, I especially love the lines...1-6, it's so human, well done.
 — Thea
