THE CUPID RAINBOW!!

Share

Thwart me from whispering those 3 words back,
I begged every cell to nerve to bone to organ in me,
Avert me from this catastrophe I prayed,
I could have sworn even the weather wanted to lead me astray as he pulled me for a walk just after the heavy rain,
I barely could stop the fresh scent of air from tampering with my senses,
Neither could I help but appreciate the beauty and calmness of nature,
My hand didn’t fit into his but he held on like it did,
He looked at me like I was edible but the kind of inedible edible,
One to only treasure not just in your leisure,
I knew the difference,
I felt the rift,
I understood I couldn’t call this Love,
For when I looked at him, my heart didn’t split out of its chambers or skip an output,
He squeezed my hand again as I faked a smile,
I begged silently ‘Don’t break me’,
He halted and turned sharply, eyes interlocked with one another,
His filled with so much thirst as he leaned in for my lips,
Only for it to land on my cheek as I smiled,
Victory!!
Or so I thought,
Unknown to me that he had arranged strategies much better than that of an army,
Together the unfitting fingers interlocked as we walked further,
He told stories that made me shiver,
Not shiver from the cold but from the stories of his past,
So much cruelty his beautiful soul had endured,
My heart broke in,
Hardly could I tell the difference between pity and reality,
A glance at him reminded me of a hurt puppy in need of a hug,
My feeble arms extended,
Oh Holy Mary,
I want to love him, but I just can’t,
Not in the way he desires,
The sky casts out its beauty-Rainbow,
A sign some would say,
Just at that moment, he held me again & leaned in,
All went red as Cupid hit me,
True or False,
My little heart gave in.
