b/c it's valentines day + stuff

Aries:
already fallen
without thinking ahead,
following impulses instead

Taurus:
keeping the past
tight within your grasp,
you fear replacing 
established romance 

Gemini:
you are a bird, uncaged,
changing direction at
the slightest bought of wind

Cancer:
worry eats you away—
how lonely your mind 
makes love out to be

Leo:
constant reaffirmation, yet
still you keep craving 
reminders of affection

Virgo:
analyze heartbeats until
you find them to beat out of sync—
more proof of a love gone wrong

Libra:
unproportionate give and take—
turning a blind eye when
you begin to feel used

Scorpio:
awake all night, terrified your
dedication is not reflected,
replaying sleepless nightmares

Sagittarius:
a world of open doors 
taunts you to enter—
how to stay in place when
there’s so much you might miss?

Capricorn:
armored heart,
a metal coating will not melt
until you find some warmth

Aquarius:
glancing twice into storefront windows
to assure yourself that two distinct outlines
remain reflected back

Pisces:
vision clouded with selfless love,
you see only the good in everyone
(how far can a person rot before
you see what they’ve become?)
