CUPID’S DECEPTION ON SCREENS

I have been deceived
Deceived like an idiot thinking seas give fins
To determined humans who use them as route
But I should have known
That although swans may give ambitions to fishes
No fish must make the mistake of wanting to fly and swim like swans
Lest dissapointments hit them like bullets from a doped machine gun
So much even the spines of the deep seas cannot save their corpse debris
I am the fish who seeks to fly

II
Seeing the feathers of flying lovebirds
On screens with idol pretenders
Looking so good
Cupid depicted as the most beautiful arena
Apt music complimenting all emotions
Apt sounds prompting emotions for every scene
All the right words inherent even when unspoken
When spoken, divinity wears white robes for renewal of vows
And they look so real that one cannot help but be charmed
Into its pretty place
Only to realize there are no signs of truth
Lies dressed in apparels of royalty
Those beautiful scenes turn hellish in practice
No matter its planning
How can days on screen turn nights of nightmares in reality?
I have been deceived
That gravels are stars
And stones are moons
But what can I do?
Life is better with a leg in a deceptive shoe
Walking with the other in truth is difficult
But the practice is worth it
