Insidious childlike angelic pest
adorned with pewter black wings
must you make such nauseating spectacles
of foolishly smitten human beings?
Grotesquely flaunting gaudiness
in mouth-to-mouth displays
of public affection so hideous
I am blinded with dismay.
Unearthly creature armed with bow and arrow
bloody hearts falling limp at your beckon
I’ve escaped your charms many times, so narrow
with your primitive medieval weapon.
Effigy of eternal fallacy
to whom only a weakling could fall prey
for solitude is my normality
love is a fool’s game that children play.
Like a baby deity on Valentine’s Day.
