**is Cupid A Man? **

If cupid really was a man
with a cute little dart
who shot you with them,
right through your heart;

Why is it that men
are the last ones to say
that they want to be with you
each and every day.

I don't understand it,
how could he be a guy?
Did no one ever think,
or stop to question why?

Have you ever heard of a man
from all of the lands,
that welcomed you in
with wide open hands.

I know a few out there
think that he's really cute,
but just dress him up in a well tailored suit

and you'll see that he'll change
be more distant than before.
He'll probably leave you
standing by his door.

Now don't get me wrong
I'm all for love instead of war;
but how do you get him
and keep him from wanting more?

If he's so damn cute
then he's sure to see;
that there's more to life
than just being with me.

He'll shoot all the women
with his candy coated darts,
and they'll melt like chocolate
with a marshmellow heart.

He'd be loved and adored
and worshipped by them all.
and the more he smiles
the harder they fall.

I can already hear you
complaining to me.
That there are lots of men out there
who will love me for me,

but i just want to know
If the Greeks were stupid.
How could they say
that a man could be cupid? ...

ohkay! ! ? ? i DONT belive in Cupid and all even though i BELIVE in Luv and guys? ? Cupid thats lame but rly good poem my songs OAY~~ xD Ashely...~~~
Cupid is a little boy, wants to love and be loved... so do men when they're children... it's when they grow up that the problems begin! :) Enjoyed your poem..
this quite an ellectrifying piece. I give you a formidable 10
Cupid was Aphrodite's son. Hence he had no control over his own birth, like all of us. When you're happy in love, you'll love Cupid. When sad, may be you can then ask him to redirect those candy-tipped arrows elsewhere. I enjoyed this poem! Cheers. Subroto
