Here’s a poem I just wrote in honor of Valentine’s Day:

Roses are red.
Hallmark is boring. 
Buy a card from a store
and you won’t be scoring.

(Please send my Pulitzer prize here.)

If we’re being honest, store-bought Valentine’s Day cards really only have one benefit: convenience. Everyone’s love is unique, and there’s just no way a card from a store can express you and your partner’s love of horror movies or late-night farting contests or whatever it is that makes your love special. If you want a card that accurately expresses how you feel about your beloved, you’re better off just writing one yourself. Heck, a Valentine doesn’t even have to be a card at all. It can be anything that says, “I love you.”

But maybe you’re not as good at poetry as I am. If you need inspiration, here’s a tip: the most romantic V-Day cards are the ones that sound totally normal to you and your beloved, and totally insane to anyone else. If you need inspiration, check out these 15 homemade examples. Love really makes all of us weirdos. (via Bored Panda).
