" GRIEVING HEART " MY PHOTO, ©
On Valentine's day
A grieving heart Cupid approached and thus
"Come, oh Cupid,
You winged child of Venus and Mercury,
and tell me, once more,
should I, willingly, offer myself as a target again
your sharp arrows of love to practice on?"
"Have you forgotten the times your sweet arrows have
failed to keep their promises of bliss
instead have brought me lots of excruciating pain?"
Looked at the complaining heart and austerely thus
" Oh, you foolish heart
First, you ought to know
the target my arrows never miss
if sometimes seems that they do so
please don't assume that it is my mistake
I always aim at the target you, yourself, so
enthusiastically to me present each time
your every infatuation
your eternal love to be
if you had avoided this tactic and
more cautious you were
I assure you
alien grief to you would have forever
