I prayed that my heart-in-pain and Valentines won’t coincide…

a friend saw you yesterday
you looked so gorgeous
you were in a hurry
when you flagged down a yellow taxi


i thought you were at home busy
on the phone, promised on leaving early
we’ll have a date to watch a movie
but your word was a trick and half-empty

we’re supposed to meet at the cinema’s lobby
guests in pairs, i felt the envy
five agonizing hours i have waited
precious moments have been waisted


didn’t show up at the agreed time
i really thought that you were mine
to learn from our friends which i hate
you’ve gone with someone on a date


the truth hurts deep inside
though i really prayed so hard last night
that my heart-in-pain and valentines won’t coincide
i’ll sleep my nights and let the tides of anger subside
