Cupid's Desire

by Christopher Shin

Why do I bleed even
though my heart is
encased in cement
I still continue to
want and desire.

I gave up the idea
of love when I no
longer sacrificed my
offering on your alter.
But you smile at me
with those cherub

You hold your arrows
like a triumphant deity.
And yet as I stand over
the rubbles of your holy sight.
I can not find satisfaction
for what I have done.

My heart continues to beat
in it's own cemented grave,
and yet I still see you with
your twisted sneer.

My head tells me that this
trivial thing could only bring
down the harbringers of doom.
You with your twisted wings,
and cherub like features.

Would it be simple to bury my
heart in the deep dirty grounds?
Could I sink it to the bottom
of the deepest blue ocean?
But it would come all to not.

For I know deep down you would
cause my heart to yearn and burn
for the thing that I know will
never come to me in this life and
the next.

You would make me suffer like a
moth to your wicked licks of flame.
So as I stand disheartened by your
choices in my affairs I know that
you enjoyed my pure and simple
