" GRIEVING HEART " MY PHOTO, ©

Image may contain: flower, plant and nature





On Valentine's day 
A grieving heart Cubid approached and thus
It spoke:
 
"Come, oh Cupid, 
You winged child of Venus and Mercury,
come
and tell me, once more,
why
should I, willingly, offer myself as a target again
for
your sharp arrows of love to practice on?"

"Have you forgotten the times your sweet arrows have
 failed to keep their promises of bliss
but
instead have brought me lots of excruciating pain?"


Surprised Cupid,
Looked at the complaining heart and austerely thus
Replied:

" Oh you foolish heart 
First,  you ought to know 
that 
the target my arrows never miss
and
if sometimes seems that they do so
it is not my mistake
for  
I always aim at the target you, yourself, so
enthusiastically to me present each time
declaring 
your every infatuations 
as
your eternal love to be
however,
if you had avoided this tactic and more cautious you were
I assure you
that 
alien grief to you, would have forever
remained!"

Not easy to discern real love. But one must work hard to achieve it. Interesting poem.

- Cupid always does the right thing - Sometimes you have to work hard to keep love alive - We must endure adversity and bad days, and slowly builds a lasting love :) - Happy Valentine's Day, my friend :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Some mistake infatuation for love but real love comes from the heart. You're right, Cupid never misses but only if we show him our heart. Tom.
