There is nothing to see here and that nothing gazes back.
Bitter V-day post.

Well that special day is almost upon us. The one where anyone that has someone relishes and everyone without someone hates.
Normally I would let this slide and let people have their fun but this year I have a particular animosity toward it having been burned fairly harshly by someone who used to mean a lot to me
Everything is fleeting and nothing ever lasts. I learned a long time ago to enjoy what you have while its there because it will be gone sooner or later. I believe the sayings are "tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" and "time heals all wounds". While I believe that they both hold some truth I still feel disillusioned each time the cycle ends and while I don't hesitate to ever try again it becomes less potent with each time. Its been a long time since I've really liked someone. I'm a hopeless romantic. While it may seem foolish to most I believe in one person. Many can come close and each will leave a lasting impression but, in the end I believe there will be one and only one. Even if you never find them.(which the odds are in favor of.)
All just rantings of an old soul I suppose. Still, whenever I spend the 14th alone I wonder if I will ever cross paths with the right one and if I'll know her if I do.
