Naughty Cupid - Poem by Amitava Sur

What a poison you injected in me
With the sting of your arrow,
You struck me so deep inside,
I’m shivering with a rigor
But very strangely I don’t know –
Why, still I’m liking it!

What a poison it is,
You injected in me?
It is so intoxicating
And so irresistible it is!


O’ you naughty Cupid,
Although your sting is so vicious and torrid!
Undoubtedly it gives a tangy and sweet pain.
A matured human heart
Utterly yearns for that arrow's sting,
To be penetrated deep inside, again and again ….

    Amitava, your poem is sad, but yet uplifting at the same time, letting everyone know that love is beautiful and fantastic when you are together, yet stinging with pain when you are finally separated by death. That arrow's sting of love is very addictive in spite of what we end up going through in our lives, it was well worth it to have had that deep and inspiring love. Although without it life is then filled with sorrow, emptiness and loneliness. Great rhythm and expression of feelings and emotions. Smiling with a tear in my eyes. Beautiful and enticing poem, Little One. Totally enjoyed reading it! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    I think Cupid has given up on me! Good ink.
