Cupid


Savage little naked fool
with puny weapons of love
fly yourself to another heart
before I snap your wings.

Point poison arrows at me again
and feel the wrath I reap
I'm wounded...hurt...yet still beating...
so quit aiming at my chest.

    The sting of his arrow that never leaves; either bringing joy or sadly sorrow!
    Your advice to Cupid is very well put, although I feel you are a romantic at heart and when you are ready it too will return! (Report) Reply

    Alas, he'll aim at you again when you're not looking. And that's when he's most dangerous!

    Wonderfully sardonis piece.

    I really like your wicked wit. I really like your poem. It reminds me of the acid tongue of Stephen Crane. Below I have listed one of my favorite poems by Crane.

    In the desert


    In the desert
    I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
    who, squatting upon the ground,
    Held his heart in his hands,
    And ate of it.
    I said, 'Is it good, friend? '
    'It is bitter - bitter, ' he answered;
    'But I like it
    Because it is bitter,
    And because it is my heart.'

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
