Stupid Cupid

entry picture

I see you lurking about
making him say 
sweet nothings
to lure me out.

This time 
I am being smart,
walling off 
my broken heart.

Using your 
flaming arrows
to paint the sky.

Let the world know
you are really 
not a nice guy.

You are a trickster
who makes girls cry
with your stupid lies.

My schooled soul 
knows the truth

Romantic love
is an illusion,
passion fades.

Real love 
starts within,
is patient, kind, 
and never ends.

Thank you Heart of Lead. It takes supreme effort to not give into the bitterness of a broken heart, but to instead forgive and move on. I find that writing helps by taking the hit to cushion the blow.

Powerful and truthful. Righteous bitterness laces your words. Broken hearts hurt at any age and time.
