I have been bitten by the thorns of cupid

Its teeth chewing deep into the bones of my heart,

Its claws digging deep into my knee bones

Rendering me immobile


I have been bitten by the thorns of cupid

Like a fool, I saw only its beautiful roses

Like a fool,I decided to decorate the chambers of my heart with its roses

But it hid its thorns under its beauty and stepped in


I have been bitten by the thorns of cupid

No one sees it within,

I cannot say I opened this heart and let it in for fear of mockery

All I can do is wince quietly in pain


I have been bitten by the thorns of love

I am bleeding internally

But mouths sing of its beauty and give it praises

When I am dying from within


I’ll probably end in the grave

Sad thing I cannot a soul save

From its claws

Sweet love, carnivorous thorns, unfortunate I only feel the latter.

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
