I was the write a poem based off of three things subject/picture, number, and letter. I ended up with Romance, Love, and Q-Tip.

For the sake of challenge I tried it. Of course it ended up being a little bit humorous, but the contest is based off of comments, reads, and likes, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me out. Thank you.

I fell in love,
At the grocery store,
In the toiletry section,
Of aisle twenty-four.

He walked through the aisle,
Jeans hugging his hips,
And put in his cart,
The last box of Q-tips.

Oh what luck that,
There would be no more.
For they were exactly what,
My mom sent me out for.

I cursed under my breath,
And looked the other way.
I turned back again,
To only hear him say:

"I'm sorry to distress you...
Did you need these?
For I can give up the Q-tips...
To keep your pretty ears clean."

I giggled at the absurdity,
Of what had just come out of his mouth.
But just as I laughed,
He said, "Want to go out?"

"Maybe some dinner?"
He quickly asked me.
"Well," says I,
"I'd rather coffee..."

So we went on a date,
And another one, too.
The dates turned to kisses.
The kisses to "I love you."

He popped the question,
One day at the store,
In the toiletry section...
Of aisle twenty-four.
