I work at in the Fleet Dept, of an insurance company and for Valentine’s Day 2009 we had a competition. The prize was a £20 for pretty much anywhere. The taks was to do something romantic that would capture the managers heart. I wanted my entry to be a poem, but I wasn’t really feeling all that inspired. Then on the last day for entries I woke up with a little rhyme in my head and within 45 minutes I’d composed the whole poem.
Do you remember the first time the last time you fell in love?
Somehow I tapped into that feeling when you starting falling for the person who makes your world turn. The Crush is about that one person who makes your stomach flip with just the smallest of actions. You try ignore it. You try to hide it. You try to deny it. When its obvious to everyone that you fancy the pants off that person.
Unfortunatly, I didn’t win the competition. I lost out to heart shaped strawberry cheesecakes.
