The Bloody Valentine Blog Hop in 140 characters

The premise of this hop is to be the antithesis of Valentine's Day. There's no sweet romance, or lovey-dovey stuff allowed. It's down with the idea of candy and flowers. For one day writers and bloggers will dispense with the sappy romance, and showcase the bad side of love. 

We will be celebrating heartbreak, love gone wrong, romantic mayhem and tragedy, hopefully with that little splash of humour and blood.  At the Bloody Valentine Horror Hop  you will find out what happens when the rose petals die, the candy melts, and lovers are looking for payback.

So here are 6 anti-Valentinian 140-character tweets. Enjoy.

When roses die, the petals fall, and leaves like brittle sawdust crack and rip her feeble skin; 
she’s clearing dreams that ended; 
losing him


When roses die the blood is red
that drips to feed the worms of words unsaid,
that blisters heartache’s burns
while sharpened thorns return.


He loved; she loved; their love so hot
it burned the rosepetals to dust
& melted chocolate hearts, then he
departed; she’s still cleaning up


Red petals bloom,
sweet chocolate gloom,
she’s met her doom
& leaking, soon
this darkened room
will see his food,
is petals from her throat


Red petals rise
to brightened skies,
she’ll not despise
his love, but why’s
he seeking to
the wondrous hour?
Wings spread, she flies.


An angel’s haunted dream was he
a devil’s haunted hope &she
imagined she could change but we
the offspring ever strange

What a neat idea to use tweets as a literary form - like modern Haiku. All powerful, to the point and poignant.

I like the bite sized sections and how each piece connects to the next. Very cool.
