On Cupid’s Broken Wings

by Dawn Pisturino

On Cupid’s broken wings,

He landed at my door,

An instrument with broken strings,

No music at his core.

His arm wrapped up in dirty slings,

His leg — an oozing sore,

I welcomed him, and my heart sings

With love, and so much more!

With honeyed lips, I kissed him . . .

Please visit Spillwords to read the rest of the poem. Thank you!

[Note: I haven’t been posting much lately because I’ve been working on the final project for my university class. The class is almost over!]

    (clearly my favorite part, that was just fun)
    A golden lyre and a whim
    To feel the lover’s dart
    Deep in my chest. O cherubim! —
    Aim true, and never part

  19. Congratulations Dawn for having this gem published on Spillwords just for Valentines Day. I left you my little heart of appreciation. Your poem feels almost classical, in its style and choice of wording. It flowed lyrically and had a very dreamlike feel. So beautiful Dawn ❤️
