The King of Romance Speaks (for Sarah Lynn)


Flowers sent
on February 14th

rarely smell
as sweet

as the bouquets
sent

on any other
day.

  1. I agree. I think love ought to be shown and shared 365 days of the year, not just on one day and, yes, flowers smell beautiful too. :)
    Well said.

  2. i agree...but think it always depends on the motivation...if you do it cause you really want to...they smell candy sweet...if you do it because there's pressure from outside...ugh...she will taste it..

  13. Damn straight. The best gestures are spontaneous, and the most meaningful the ones that just come out of the blue, because. But most of us are quite susceptible to simple bribery, as well.

  14. I wouldn't mind if I get one today or tomorrow...just saying if the intention is true, then the day doesn't matter ~
