It Happens

Cupid shot and missed

His arrow fell before it reached.

Intentions to arouse emotions...failed.

Simple, short: She couldn't be tamed.

Did it need to be named?

Or labelled Whatever it was-what he wanted to do?

To make her see his aim to claim her love?

It had to be more than sight

More than eyes that met at night

in the dark when a chemical spark

ignited and manifested

through words, through action

action to explain the pains of emotion

felt but died out in attempted communication.
