Cupid, Have a Heart!

Updated on February 14, 2011

Cupid, you are a rascal
One I cannot figure out...
you disregard deep yearnings,
this lonely heart you flout.
Are you but temperamental
or narcissistic, could it be?
Why is it that you know not
who merits frivolity?
Herein lies my question,
you angelic little knave...
it's your taste that I've acquired
your arrow that I crave...
I would that you leave me, thus,
to live my life in peace...
without the lust you have inspired
that torments without cease...
or have a heart, you impish brat,
and aim your arrow true...
that one last time I sip of love
in my final act debut.

      Love it! I have had similar thoughts about cupid, mine however I will never publish here. You say it with so much more dignity and class, thank you again.

      ....well Cupid did have a heart with me - he introduced me to the 'love' of your writing - and as a person too!
