Valentine's Day Promise

Couples not fighting
about Facebook sightings
together they are
under dim lighting.

Making promises to be true,
pledging to do The Do.

But reality will be here tomorrow
and someone will experience sorrow.

Reflecting on a night,
when there was no fight.

Told to make good on what was said,
words sealed up on top of a bed.

Old arguments return,
relationship set to burn.

A lover loses memory,
doesn't recall.
Willing to take yet another fall.

Nothing is new,
there is no, "I love you too."

Unforgiveness looms,
no jumping a broom.

Until one knows what he or she
wants to do, there will be no one
saying, "I do."
