Cupidís Arrow



Cupidís arrow struck my heart
Upon a summers day
Cupidís arrow fogged my mind
My heart was stolen away

Cupidís arrow made me see
A love I did not know
A lover wearing friendshipís clothes
Cupid came to show.

Cupidís arrow struck his heart
For he, did not intend
To give his love unto me
But to my dearest friend

Immersed into loveís sickness
My rampant heart is hurled
I only thought and drank of love
My life within a whirl

Poetry flowed from
My pen like a stream
Floating on clouds in the air
My life was like a dream

Cupidís arrow inspired me
To write how deep I feel
My very first inspiration
Of a love that was surreal

Cupidís arrow is like fire
The way true love must start
Not fierce flames of passion
But with a simple spark

Cupidís arrow still pierces deep
For only my true love
Together now for many years
My blessing from above

The story told by this poem is charming--I'd like to know more some day, perhaps in prose form.

The poem has a few metaphors too many--sometimes it's best to stick with one and to expand on it.

You're very blessed!
