Umm... a crappy poem? Brilliance unforeseen from one such as I? The decision is yours.

BTW, I realize that eros is the greek form of the roman cupid, however, I feel that there is a connotational difference that allows a distinction to be made.

Ere Eros fell and Cupid reigned,
True love, not lust, brought us our pain.
But, as time moves slowly on,
And love is nothing more than song,
True hearts become a funeral pyre,
Blazing forth into desire.
If only this were not so,
If only you could see below,
To where those dormant feelings lay,
Waiting to break forth into the day.
At last you’d see my torment bare
It’s you my love howe’er unfair.
