On this St Valentines'

I have tried to drink you away
Wash these marks from my heart
From my mind

I have tried to forget you again
With the taste of gin, and whiskey, and wine
From my being

But even though I no longer love you
Or her as I once so fervently did
From my heart

You have all shaped my soul with your absences
Sculpting who I am without you
From my memory

So this day I shall raise my cup to all of you
To the memory of your sweetest smiles
From our pasts

And I shall no more weep these sweet tears
For anyone of you
From my soul
