Favorite Quote:
"We have to be continually jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down." Kurt Vonnegut

Heart throb
An oxymoron, really
Because it looks like
Sounds like
Yet if it is,
Why does this valentine of mine
Push against these iron ribs,
A prisoner of itself?

The words flow nicely and yet I don't quite see the point of the poem- love is not always peaceful and nice. Love can be a prisoner, it can be tormenting. So it's not really an oxymoron. Good job though!
