  • I never asked, it simply happened.

    Faded jeans, yellow tube top, baby blue eyes with lashes that went on forever,

    impertinent smile daring me to try,

    you had me.

    I never asked for this to be, it simply happened.

    Like an animal of the wild, I was ensnared.

    From first sight I was caught in your trap.

    And I didn’t ask, It simply happened.

    At times, I may have rebelled against my imprisonment,

    but always returned to the trap, happy in the detainment for my life.

    But I never asked, It simply happened.

    The beauty faded, but I was caught.

    You wandered away weary of our life, and I was still caught.

    Now you’ve gone forever, and I’m still your catch.

    I never asked you to be,

    You always were, and will always be,

    My Valentine.

    It simply happened.
