Killing Cupid

My lip curled and slightly bitten
My tongue concealed and skilfully hidden
Because it dances at the sight of you
Ready to declare my love for you
I eschew my feelings
Because I don’t believe in happy endings
I've been hurt so many times
And although I’ve just etched into my prime
I feel like I was born to be alone sometimes
Everything’s telling me yes
My fears are telling me no
And as my mind is whispering stop
My body's screaming go!
My heart longs to be locked with yours
But my fear of being hurt Locks and bolts those doors
Me and cupid will continuously fight
I've already broke his arrow and snapped his bow
I refuse to make a fool of myself in his love show
And that’s something I cannot be sorry for
Because if you’re “my soul mate” how comes he shot me so many times before?

Very good poem. I use to fall easily because of me having such a big heart. But over the years I have grown thick skinned so now Cupid's arrows just bounce off my backside. Really enjoyed it
