Happy Valentine’s Day

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day here is my favourite love poem:

Love Song

If I could write words

Like leaves on an Autumn forest floor

What a bonfire my letters would make.

If I could speak words of water

You would drown when I said

‘I love you.’

-Spike Milligan.

Personally, it is the beautiful and morbid imagery of drowning the person you love with your words that makes this poem stand out. Spike Milligan was pretty messed up but boy, could he write a poem.
