Annual Inivtation to the Lonely Corner
« on: February 14, 2008, 05:47:51 PM »

Hello wastelanders, unwashed and bungeed
It's that time of the year again, where I in possession of the title and responsibilities included in the office of the Patron Saint of the Lonely make a thread on Valentines in some sort of delicious irony.

But it isn't irony, really. It's a heartfelt attempt to get out there to everyone on this national (and sponsored, some would argue) observance of the phenomena of love - day.

So what can I offer you? Nothing, probably. Except the space needed for a thought. And an internet ear.

Lovers of the world, Rejoice.
And to all the lonely hearts
do not lament, do not fear
do not succumb to anguish

My advice is limited but sage
And also repeated, emphasized.
Get out there
never be afraid
Take care of yourselves.


Where has it gone?
What I see all around me,
has always been there.
Strangely enough I always found it missing.

I had a great caustic reply all ready to go but that actually was so nice, I couldn't post it. :(
