I have a stuffed puppy I once bought as a Valentine's day gift, but my then girlfriend broke up with me a little under two weeks before. Instead of being a gift of joy, it wound up being the thing I curled up with night in sorrow, after first detaching the little stuffed heart that said "Be mine."

Why is it hard for many to conceive of love without sexual desire, but, understand lust without love quite readily?

Predicting your future love by twisting the stem of an apple.

Putting up with each other's imperfections.

For imperfections, see above "The Feast of Saint Valentine."

Poem

From your Valentine prompt came the free-verse poem "The Love Puppy." Sometimes we don't wind up with the love we want, but the love we need.

Re: Poem

I want sponsor this, but I'll have to wait until next Friday (ironically, Valentine's Day), when I get paid. Can you hold on to that for me until then, pretty please? *puppy dog eyes*

Re: Poem

Awesome. I have logged this poem as reserved for your attention on 2/14/14. It will make a great release then, as it is in fact a Valentine's Day poem.

Poem

For love without sex, see "Lawless, Winged, and Unconfined" thumbnailed above.
