To cross the line

           Traveling in the Years of Romance 
      the feast, of Saint Valentine,    
           the name of my lost love,
           and each such day,

                             [the winged cupid,
           reminds me that I was stupid,
           that I let you leave much loved.

my constant reference to 
                             [poets make me unloved,

           but with much respect and much attention,
           a quote, of Oscar Wilde which matches 
                                                         [I will mention.

          "Yet each man kills the thing he loves".

           Thoughts of the poet, 

                      as if they were brought 
                                          [by messenger doves.

             As you can see,

                           [my love for you Caroline,
             pushes me again to cross the line

             and travel in the years of romance,
             before computers,
                               [cell phones, hot pants…
