Love in Shadow

Each February,
love-deprived people
come out of shadow
for the feast of Saint Valentine.
Renewing the hope
that love might be lurking
behind sentimental words
within the folds
of a Hallmark card,
dipped in heart-shaped
milk chocolate,
or permeating the
fragrant soft petals
of a dozen red roses.
And every year, like
the year before
the mark is missed
and love goes with them
back into the shadow.
