What's Love got to do with it

Before we move into the month of February, it's fair to say and acknowledge, that some people may dread the month of love.
I remember the days when I was anti-love and anti Valentines. Love had trampled me, and kicked me when I was down...not so much love but the people I chose to love.  So I feel , or rather, have felt your pain. So here's a post just for you.

For those of you that say F*ck Love and F*ck Valentines Day, here are a few books you may enjoy! Afterall, everyone, especially misery, likes a little company...

F*CK LOVE by Tarryn Fisher




Helena Conway has fallen in love.
Unwillingly. Unwittingly.
 But not unprovoked.
Kit Isley is everything she’s not—unstructured, untethered,
and not even a little bit careful.
It could all be so beautiful … if he wasn’t dating her best friend.
Helena must defy her heart, do the right thing, and think of others.
Until she doesn’t.

Anti-Love Poems by Pella Dikonimaki



Anti-Love poems is a collection of 38 poems about love, but in a way that erases every trace of foreverness in love affairs. The hidden truth gets the first role in the play of love and comes to the foreground to remove the transparent veil of belief that blurs reality. 
Here's a poem from the collection, dedicated to all. 

BRIDES 
Stars will ornate it, 
fairies will embroider it, 
elves will weave it. 
Without saying, 
the fairy tale princes 
will envy the lad who will take the beautiful girl. 
Him… 
he never showed up. 
Her… 
she wore her wedding dress 
and left towards the sunset, 
nearly seventy years old.
