Valentine's Day dittie

A couple of weeks ago, thinking about a past relationship, I penned this little verse and thought I'd post it as reminder to self on this, the day of coupledom...

MY ARMS

Just for you,
Without a frown
I keep them down,
My arms.

Just for you,
With a run of sun
and a gleam of cream,
My arms.

Just for you,
When you say goodbye
and prepare to lie,
My arms.

Just for you,
the Victory sign
in perfect line,
My arms.

Just for me,
I see
It's always Fuck.
And. Off.
And I wrap them around me,
My arms.
