“Cupid’s Cords”

Poetry. 2 minutes to read.


Sometimes I doubt the beauty of my words

If I say there are sunbursts in your eyes

And your voice sings and soars like Cupid’s Cords 

Would you read another lover’s quick rhymes? 

I fear my mind lacks fresh poems on love

Then I see you and write up a new one

‘Cause you are softer than a rainy night 

With lips that dull even the purest light 

And if your storm should shower down on me

I’d soak in your sweet bounty from my knees

For as silver rain nourishes the trees

Your love, to me, shares a similar need

As long as the Earth continues to breathe,

Or if it’s stopped, then our drums will still beat.
