Two Romantic Poems

by Greg Schwartz

Valentine’s Day

I got you a present
For Valentine’s Day.
Once you unwrap it,
It’s ready to play.
But it doesn’t like sunlight,
So here’s what we’ll do:
Bend over the bed,
And I’ll hide it in you.

Door Number Two

We know each other
Inside and out.
You know when I’m happy,
I know when you doubt.
There’s just one place
I’ve yet to explore.
You guard it well;
It’s a top-secret door.
So if you love me
Like I love you,
Please won’t you let me in
Door number two?
