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!]

The Queen of Hearts – a Poem

(Artwork by Tenniel)

The Queen of Hearts made cherry tarts

On Cupid’s Special Day.

The Knave of Hearts threw out those tarts

And stole the Queen away.

His bow was strong, his arrows sharp,

He drew with deadly force.

His missile pierced the tender heart,

Killing her, of course.

With hungry zeal, he yanked the heart

From Queenie’s bloody chest

And feasted on her royal blood,

Rating it the best!
