Well, Writer's Cramp, since today is Valentine's Day...
         I stuttered and sputtered, words would not come.
         A knot cinched my tongue and rendered me dumb.
         In a jumble, my thoughts skittered and spun.
         The pulse in my forehead throbbed like a drum.
         My ears muffled sound to a low-pitched hum.
         Quick regret teetered on what have I done?
         Limbs ignored me, they refused to obey.
         With a slight tremble, they forced me to sway.
         Dread seeped through my bones, cold, clammy, heavy.
         What had I expected this special day?
         Did I misstep with my public display?
         Wishes, dreams, love, a surprise bevy?
         My throat constricts, I scarce dare to breathe.
         Doubt, panic, what ifs all simmer and seethe.
         Sharing my feelings has not been a breeze.
         Valentine's Day lays bare emotion's sheath.
         Returned affection a hopeful bequeath.
         I'm frozen 'til he sees me, likes me, please. ( 18 lines )
