CUPID'S FOLLY


 photo 227dc219-100d-40b1-8565-778d9240af60.jpg

Forever seemed possible
seemed real
so tangible it felt
like I had it
within my grasp

holding my breath
and making a wish…

envisioning a place
for me with you

we could not be
more compatible
more attuned
more made for
each other

you said it

and made me believe
had me convinced
that soul mates
really do exist…

but like the tooth fairy
and Santa Claus

now it feels like
those myths, all lies
told to a fragile heart

are nothing but
a broken
promise

Cupid missed
his target
love shouldn't
end like this

your words
have turned
my hopes

to stone
