I Wish Valentine’s Day Is Just Another Day

i wish Valentine’s Day is just
a product of the imagination
of poets and creatives alike
to generate monetary compensation
and to further their pursuit of recognition and epic breakthroughs,
but it isn’t.

and so this day is just
another epic day reminder
“whatever happened to us?”
another day for regrets
and blame throwing
“where did i go wrong?”
another day for what-ifs
and what could have beens –
just another day.

i wish Valentine’s Day is just
a product of the imagination
of poets and creatives alike so that
i won’t be sitting here alone
counting the years and counting
the times
it could have been me,
you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with over a romantic dinner
in a fancy restaurant,
but it wasn’t me.

and so this day is just another day
full of remorse and guilt
had i been brave enough to fight for my love,
would i be holding your hand today?
another day to feel sorry for all
that i was and all that i failed to do –
just another day.

i wish Valentine’s Day is just
another ordinary day
so that i won’t need to go through
over and over again,
feeling the pain
of not being the one chosen,
of not being the one loved
of not being the one you celebrated Valentine’s Day with
for the last years or so.
