Heartbreak From Space ( A different Valentine's Day Poem)

Paul is an Engineer. A graduate from a Catholic University. A rebel and a romantic...

Your name is the prayer I speak before the altar.

When you’re around my heart beats faster;

Like cannon balls racing towards the border….

Shyness vanishing as our bond gets stronger;

You’re my un-adulterated shock absorber…

In a world full of sugar-coated pretensions,

There you are like a dew-kissed carnation.

Batting your eyes with subtle flirtation;

Your lips requiring complete submission…

The vibrations and sensations

Are launching me to a space station.

I’m now on an inter-galactic mission

To put my flag in your emotions.

With love as the driving force I made it to space.

Alas, it was too late when I realized it was a race.

While I was busy packing my suitcase;

A Space Commander landed in your airbase.

Now I will fly back to earth disgraced.

I did not even get an embrace.

I tried my best to give a straight face;

As I threw all our memories into deep space
