99 (who?)
I chewed my pen to the nib
and swallowed the ink thoughtlessly,
but no matter how long I thought,
I couldn't say what you mean to me.

I tried, I tried and I tested,
every word in my diminutive range,
but I screwed up more pieces of paper
and happened upon something strange;

I noticed words, which have served me,
for all of my formative years,
had no power to convey my gratitude
for the times that you dried my tears.

Whenever I doubt myself (often),
You're the one who tells me I'm wrong
You lift up my chin and remind me, wait
for the good things that will come along.

I can't find a way to express how
you are the saving grace in my head.
So words can't tell you how I love you -
I hope my silence will tell you instead.
This absence of a poem is in absence of a valentine. I created it purposefully for some people here on DA who have helped me through really terrible times. I will never be able to thank them, they will never truly understand how in my mind, all the hope and courage I have is in their accents and dialects. They are that voice in my mind telling me to hold on. They are the ones fighting my dark thoughts and sadness in my head, not me... and I'll never be able to thank them enough for that. But maybe the fact that I, who loves words so much, cannot find the words will be enough to show them how deeply I mean it when I say thank you. Even if our friendship is past tense I will never forget it, and even if we are newly friends you are only here if you have truly done something that has helped me get through a dark time, be it an hour, a day, a week, a year or a minute. So thanks.

Also, I know I suck at rhyming, but its Valentines day. I think rhyming is a law or something. so I tried. SHUDDUP.

If you aren't listed below then instead of faving this terrible terrible poem why not go check one of them out and fave something of theirs? <3

there's honestly more to this poem that meets the eye. Even with the rhyming.

Heck, the rhyming here would definitely have something more than just... as is (which in my opinion is good - you should write rhyming poetry whenever you can manage - you honestly aren't half that bad).
