This means I live in a 
perverse fantasy world with unrealistic expectations...

SUGAR … 
 
Red image, white heart of valentines
When Love Is In The AirGodiva's magic candy makers use to fatten their illusion: 
 
 
"LOVE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATE-COVERED CHERRIES" 
red-red roses and their dainty cousin daisies severed in their prime so we might ask: 
 
"SHE LOVES ME OR SHE LOVES ME NOT?" 
and RAP-raped rhythms pumping us to buy prepackaged tenderness: the 50-thousandth reprint of a Valentine designed especially for hearts too busy to compose a love song or a poem or serve as cleverly deceptive "duty-cards" disguising passions ritual eroded long ago.
 
AND SPICE 
what joy it is to live in times when ecstasy's a product of Viagara or designer drugs; when love's the cliched output from assembly lines. Who needs a Romeo or Juliet, a Tristan and Isolde? We get our kicks from cheap-shock TV's masturbations.
 
AND EVERYTHING NICE …
[little gold-stained fingers holding out a dandelion, Picassos crayons craft with captions of immortal meaning: "MOTHER" ...
 
unexpected smiles, exchanging toothless kisses testifying to enduring bonds, the pageantry of youngsters walking hand-in-hand; that peace that only comes from understanding quiet breathing in a marriage bed; sick-room stillness broken by a whisper; "FRIEND" and the most intangible enigma of them all: the chemistry we label … LOVE
 
THAT'S WHAT VALENTINES ARE MADE OF.

Written by Andrew Marvell...

Clora, come view my soul, and tell
Whether I have contrived it well.

Now all its several lodgings lie
Composed into one gallery;
And the great arras-hangings, made
Of various faces, by are laid;
That, for all furniture, you'll find
Only your picture in my mind.


Here thou art painted in the dress
Of an inhuman murderess;
Examining upon our hearts
Thy fertile shop of cruel arts:
Engines more keen than ever yet
Adornèd tyrant's cabinet;
Of which the most tormenting are
Black eyes, red lips, and curlèd hair.


But, on the other side, thou'rt drawn
Like to Aurora in the dawn;
When in the east she slumb'ring lies,
And stretches out her milky thighs;
While all the morning choir does sing,
And manna falls, and roses spring;
And, at thy feet, the wooing doves
Sit perfecting their harmless loves.


Like an enchantress here thou show'st,
Vexing thy restless lover's ghost;
And, by a light obscure, dost rave
Over his entrails, in the cave;
Divining thence, with horrid care,
How long thou shalt continue fair;
And (when informed) them throw'st away,
To be the greedy vulture's prey.


But, against that, thou sit'st afloat
Like Venus in her pearly boat.

The halcyons, calming all that's nigh,
Betwixt the air and water fly:
Or, if some rolling wave appears,
A mass of ambergris it bears:
Nor blows more wind than what may well
Convoy the perfume to the smell.


These pictures and a thousand more,
Of thee, my gallery do store;
In all the forms thou canst invent
Either to please me, or torment:
For thou alone to people me,
Art grown a num'rous colony;
And a collection choicer far
Than or Whitehall's, or Mantua's were.


But, of these pictures and the rest,
That at the entrance likes me best;
Where the same posture, and the look
Remains, with which I first was took:
A tender shepherdess, whose hair
Hangs loosely playing in the air,
Transplanting flowers from the green hill,
To crown her head, and bosom fill.
