Valentine Dressed In Red


A valentine
dressed in red.
Her heart worn
on her sleeve,
denial impossible
confession painful.
I love you waiting
to be spoken,
rejection holding
its breath.

Valentines are expressions of love...in this poem she is a walking valentine..it is all over her she is in love with someone..in her eyes, demeanor...the words are on her lips, but she fears saying them...she fears rejection..
