hi, could you gift-wrap that consumerism?
i think i forgot how not to be cynical,
what with all the friends with mushy eyes
and knowing they'll like themselves better if someone else does.
introspective/self aware doesn't read well because:
every second step is a leap of faith
and st. valentine knows we're all just muddling through.
someone left a bouquet beside the lake today -
i wonder how long it will wilt before someone takes pity on it.
corporation carnations? how original.
st.valentine knows only tomorrow's really true.
tomorrow and tomorrow and 
why the flowers are blue.

    re: thank you! <3 yeah, and the origin of valentine's day isn't so great either. i don't know the full story, but it was a far cry from what we see today. but i'd never say no to chocolate

    INCREDIBLE "knowing they'll like themselves better if someone else does." that is horribly true sometimes.
    valentine's day just seems so commercialized and cheesy and cringy and awkward. like, ok, it might be different when you're an adult or married, but as teenagers, it just seems painfully mushy
