New Poetry Wednesday – Cupid’s Error

Cupid’s Error

Arrows under my fingernails
Cupid’s error of judgment
Beneath the neon flashing light
Everyone played along no matter
How the arrows pierced me
Left my heart on display
Shredded down to fade lights
Arrows under my fingernails
Cupid’s errors of judgment
I tried to run from incomplete
Even tweezers could not remove
Their piercing persuasion leeched
In the battered finger beds
Rough and bleeding
As I eagerly pull at them
Arrows under my fingernails
Cupid’s error in judgment
Beneath the neon flashing light
Everyone played along no matter
How the arrows pierced me
