happy skewered hearts day!

Since high school, it’s been a sort of tradition with me to do something creative for this day. Last year, I wrote a trabble (a story with exactly 300 words). The year before that, I drew a pretty couple; pieced together a breakup story using random tweets from my old (and now defunct) Twitter account and; sang a snarky song.

Well this year I got busy, so. Have some handwritten post-romantic poems and a song I recorded atop a mountain at sunset when I went on a solo climb in December last year, haha. A delicious skewered hearts day to all and sundry!
