I live as a Cupid, but even Cupid gets lonely...

A Single Cupid

by Mikey CD


I walk down the streets

All the couples smile with glee

As do I, thanks to my deeds

As I try to keep them happy


An old couple passes my eye

I remember them crystal clear

A war vet and a nurse fell in love under the black sky

I united them years ago, and they are still here


Another couple, both teens, I united

They were so opposite, if you must know

Yet the love will never finish, only started

Their hate and love is strong and clear to show


And a married couple, with children, o joy!

They were fated together to be smiling

And thanks to my clever ploy

They will always have proof of their selfless loving


Ah, but 'tis a pity!

The matchmaker has not one lover

How can I enjoy with this pity

When will I find love, will it be never?


Damned is a man like me

Adores love yet never feels it

I may never be happy

I will never be gleeful, I know it


But the smiles of the lovers

It's a gift, no doubt

Seeing the faces of my sisters and brothers

And their love, going out and about


If I will never love, that I will take

For their smiles are enough for my eye

I live as a helper, doomed to break

But I will go on to satisfy

I like this. You can feel the emotion of.....uh....cupid? Yah,cupid. You can see that he's upset that he has no one to love,but is brave (In my opinion) and kind enough to give that up for others' joy and happiness. I liked it

This seriously lacks credit.
This is beautiful poetry and you have an amazing gift to rhyme, your flow is powerfully unique.

Keep me updated and don't sell yourself short.

I love this poem, it was great. I feel bad for Cupid, I have never thought of it that way before but I will from now on. This is both sad and happy beacuse to me it seemed that Cupid wasnt bothered because he has helped other people and that is what mattered.
