Cupid's Arrow

Written by: Nick Ruff

Cupid, here your arrow lies,
Caught between this pair of eyes,
To torture me with sleepless nights,
And summon raging butterflies

How well you’ve aimed your unseen shot;
How fast your pleasing poison runs
Within my veins to make me shake,
And dream of pleasures yet to come

Your clever marksmanship has made
My mind to reel, my words to cease,
As I try, breathless and in vain,
To break the spell you’ve cast on me.
