Cupid Slam Poetry... the dark side of 'love'.
Cupid - your bow is tainted,
Dipped in venom
Dark and forlorn.

You've opened a chasm
One of broken dreams.

Then gone off to leave the two
thinking all is bliss and sweetness.

But this Love only smiles sweet and charming
It covers a wounded heart
One that will strike out like a viper
And take down all that once seemed...
Truly perfect.

The woman wants to save
To lift the man up
Beyond his vile beginnings,
But she does not realize
That ugliness is a stain;
It cannot be cleansed away.

In time, it will drag the woman
down into the mire
Push her under,
Try to break her will
And bury her alive.

You, Cupid, have spread this toxicity.
You have spread the illusion of love.
You have painted a glorified picture
A picture that now peels and frays at the edges.

This love you conjured
Only knows how to use and abuse;
It only knows how to destroy;
It only knows how to take the façade -
And tarnish it
Pulling what appears lovely
Into decay and darkness
Damning both woman and man
to the flames of hell
And a life in purgatory.
