This poem was written for a writing challenge on Instagram for Marilyn Manson’s song `Cupid Carries A Gun’, now what kind of love it must be if Cupid was carrying a gun, an earth-shaking, world-rocking kind of love is what came to my mind, I hope you like my poem.

Any attempt at making sense
of the chaos in my heart ricocheted failure…
the earthquake that his footsteps caused
in this bloody vessel in my chest
had it’s contents getting tossed around…
…love I thought…would tiptoe…
…feel surreal…
but his love was catastrophic…
I could swear I was sure…
that this damn time…
…Cupid was carrying a gun…
