If you have been searching for some poetic lines for your sweetheart today, here are some to avoid. Mike’s top five not so great Valentine’s Day lines (aka what not to write in your Valentine’s card).

#1. “Can’t wait to hug and kiss you when you walk in the door – If I miss you, I know I’d be weepy like this here cold sore.”
