Bullseye



~~~

You have been at this so long

My heart looks like a pincushion

A mass of tiny fledgling holes

Bleeding from repercussion

~~~

Your pudgy little cherub face

All smiles as you draw your bow

But where that dart will land

You have no way to know

~~~

Given tiny wings to flit about

As if an angel you are

But all your arrows leave behind

Are the deepest of the scars

~~~

You are not a welcome guest

You are a crazy toxophilite

Target a more loving heart

Get your aim just right

~~~

Every time we have had this dance

I was left feeling just more stupid

I must avoid your archerโ€™s trance

I must avoid the sadist Cupid

~~~

    ‘toxophilite’ cupid – amazing word usage

  2. So sad. Sadder yet, I totally understand this feeling!

    There is a lot of truths in this piece. We donโ€™t really choose who we love in many ways. It just happens. Often it can be very cruel and hurtful if the person isnโ€™t who they pretended to be. Great piece of writing though sad. I hate the thought of anyone hurting your sweet heart Brad. Have an amazing day and sending extra love and warm hugs today. Love Jonikins

  4. Well I must to say that I have never read Cupid described that way! Bravo! Great work my friend!
    All the best,
    FBC.
