|My age:||I am 34|
It is the one day for a special gift of intimacy: roses, chocolate, tickets to a baseball game, jewelry — or even a beautiful poem, like the bouquet Word Woman Rosemerry Trommer penned for the holiday. And like any true gift, these poem occupy a space between the author, the giver, and the receiver, like a meaningful conversation — or a kiss. Heart in My Hand, courtesy Rosemerry Trommer.
I want to do for you what the sun does for me— coax you to come outside, to breathe in the golden air. I want to warm you and enter you, fill you with brilliance, make your muscles melt, make your mind shush. I want to prepare for you luminous paths that span across deep space, thaw any part of you that feels frozen, find any cracks and slip shine into them.

Poets' corner: word woman rosemerry, love poems for cupid's day!
I want to encourage you to open, wider, wider, want to teach you to write your name in light. I do not love you in 0s and 1s, some straightforward proposition— our love, my dear, is gray, is. There is maybe in us.

Seeking validation & understanding in your poor relationships part two
How lucky to return her love. This year, only bills in the post office box and catalogs for sheets and seeds and clothes. And the part of me who knows she is gone shrugs as if I should just go on.
But the part of me who misses her longs today to find her familiar script on a red envelope. I love the part of me that misses her—I love how it insists on remembering this gift: Such a wonder to be loved by someone, such a marvel to love them back.
