Half, the Shortest Month

Cupid knocks
As door unlocks
Open to the pain

The cherub nocks
As arrow locks
Lifting up the aim

It hits it's target
Error of margin
The arrow leaves her dead

It's love to care
With cupid prayer
Amen, at your head

Massacre of saints
On this day
Oh, Heavens above!

This little angel of sparks
Eagle eyed to hit its Hallmark
Confused with love

Love does not have just one day
Share it always
Share it much

If Valentine's is the only day
You're just in mass
To buy in lust

Struck not the arrow to dictation
Let it point to a direction
To gain not simply favor

But as a pure expression
Of joy and protection
Love is everyone's savior

Treasures are cherished forever
