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.
