FROM MY HEART (045/365 DAYS, 3.0)

It's Valentine's day
and many are either acting [too] cute for the occasion 
or simply going mad trying to do things right [for a change]... 
Do I sound cynical?!? 
Perhaps...


I have a heart just like everyone else, 
a beating one too!! 
I ain't dead yet. 
But matters of the heart are no longer of any concern to me. 
It's been burning with passion; 
it's been trampled upon by indifference or lies; 
it's been bleeding for far too long. 
My heart is tired 
and I've decided to give it a break 
before it totally gives up on me. 
But have I given up on Love? 
The pure notion of Love? 
Nope, 
still a believer!! 
Men?!? 
Please, 
give me a break!! 
They wouldn't know love even if it spitted in their face. 
Again, 
do I sound cynical to you?!? 
You bet...  
I've given Love a fair chance and it proved to be a no-show. 
Why bother then?... 

I have many tattoos. 
It's long been a passion of mine. 
So, 
for the occasion, 
I dug up and scanned an old drawing of mine, 
a heart which is tattooed on my left calf. 
I also took a pic this morning of said calf, 
blended everything together 
and voila!! 
Some wear their heart on their sleeve... 
I wear mine on my skin. 
From paper to skin, 
from ink to ink!!


Since I was looking through some old stuff, 
I figured why not bring out some old pic I took back in my college days, 
in the early 1980s... 
Some pic I took at the Botanical Garden
and which I called "Lip". 
Let's see if you can figure out why.... 
I played with it on Photoshop, 
adding filters and textures, 
and to make it really corny, 
I added a good sentiment, 
but one I actually believe in, 
none of that Hallmark bullshit... 
Something I go by

So for those in a romantic relationship, 
be true to yourselves and to each other. 
For the single ones, 
keep hoping if you must, 
but just make sure of one thing first: 
Love yourself!! 
Otherwise, 
nothing is real!!

    1. Right now, they just SO don't care about me.
      One is sleeping in her room,
      and the other is sleeping next to the TV...
      :D~

  2. Happy Valentine's Day, B.! I love your heart tatoo and your photocard, they are both very beautiful. It seems that just about the time you let it all go and say forget it, that is when true love shows up. You might be closer than you think.

    1. If you keep calling me that,
      one might think you're brown-nosing me...

      May this day find you happy and well,
      and in good company as well...
      :)~
