Not what you might expect. This is the personification of love.

wearing a lace dress
fiery dress and black boots
love walks in the room
all eyes melt on him like ice

he walks in with grace
to send himself to all
for they think its love they want
but only disgrace is on their face

with a voice full of confidence
he speaks to the room
and every ear listens
to his words of love intense

"brothers, sisters, you mock me
but i am the one who you want
i'm the reason behind your marraiges
and the best fucks, not in dreams

and yet you sit there so stupid
looking at me like i'm trash
yet i was worshipped long ago
i was once known as cupid"

Gotta tell you Hon, I've worn a dress, and it wasn't fun (not for me anyway, lol) I like this piece. A cross dressing cupid, imaginative and original, then again, cupid is regualrly depicted as a baby, so anything goes I guess, lol. Keep up the good work, and if you see a bear....*Hands Sinead a shotgun*

thanks a lot, but i wrote this ages ago; its got nothing to do with valentines.
imo, valentines is just a commercial day for businesses to make money out of romance, but hey, i'm cynical.

thanks ^^

I like your idea a lot--the personification of Love as a cross-dressing man. However, I think there were a few things you could improve. You repeated some words unecessarily, and some of your language was a little off for the mood of the poem. I'm sure an edit or two will fix this--it's always good to look over something you've written, anyway. Still, love the idea, and the imagery was vivid.

but 'Love throwing it right back in there faces

HI There ... finally found a poem that made me write a comment today. I like this. Why? It's creative, interesting and says a lot about how we might feel about love in today's world. Nice write.

A decent poem.

The rhythm is fine, flows well enough.

It gets a little repetitive at points; certain words are used more than is necessary.

The rhyme in the line “but only disgrace is on their face” feels a little forced and unnecessary.

The imagery is fine.

Depicting cupid as a cross dressing man is an interesting concept.

All in all good work. Keep writing.

Hello, I wrote my hometown is Vancouver on my profile.
But actually my first language is not English.
I am still studying english and my grammar is terrible.
(Please understand me :D)
Whatever, your poet is so nice that I want to use this poem for my English Project.
(Example for Personification)

Can I use this poem for my project and ask your name?
(Cause I need writer's name on my page)

This poem grabs you like a bouncer and escorts you to the end by force. Well done.

creative, yes. coulda been stronger with rhymes and the ending is sort of blunt.

Sat, May 1st, 2010 6:26pm


This must have taken a lot of time and imagination. I wasn't quite expecting this at all, and I was confused as i read it becaue i was trying to figure out what you were talking about. But once i got to the end, i totally understood. I love this piece of writing. Especially the end. "...I was once known as cupid" Yup. That was my favorite part.

Anyway, keep writing! I adored this piece.
