Sevenling: Dark Valentine

She dreams of stones,
smooth, black heart shapes
skipping across the lake.

Love doesn’t turn pink
just because Valentine’s
are dyed rosy.

He should have opened her card.

  1. He should have opened her card....killer line for a sevenling. I always hated Valentine's day because of the hype. "Love doesn't turn pink just because Valentine's are dyed rosy..." Well said. Thank you for your sevenling.

  2. I love your sevenling Susie! A utter truth about love wonderfully written!

  3. I cringe on this one. Susie. You conveyed disdain between the lines, the guy is a crass cad.
