Happy Valentine's Day????

In keeping with our humor theme, I thought I'd share these lovely Valentine sentiments. Enjoy! Cindy

THESE ARE ENTRIES TO A WASHINGTON POST COMPETITION

ASKING FOR A TWO-LINE RHYME

WITH THE MOST ROMANTIC FIRST LINE,

AND THE LEAST ROMANTIC SECOND LINE:


1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:

Marrying you has screwed up my l ife.


2. My love, you take my breath away.

What have you stepped in to smell this way?

3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;

This describes everything you are not.


4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,

But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed.


5. I thought that I could love no other

-- that is until I met your brother.


6. Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.

But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's

empty and so is your head.


7. I want to feel your sweet embrace;

But don't take that paper bag off your face.


8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes

Damn, I'm good at telling lies!


9. I see your face when I am dreaming.

That's why I always wake up screaming.



10. My feelings for you no words can tell,

Except for maybe 'Go to hell.'


11. What inspired this amorous rhyme?

Two parts vodka, one part lime.




WHO SAID POETRY IS BORING?

Awesome! I read these to by husband and we both had a good laugh- now I might forward these along to my sister. Each was my favorite until I got to the next!
