Cupid Carries A Gun


(in response to the November Notes Writing Challenge as hosted by A Reading Writer and Heartstring Eulogies)

I’m the walking wounded
Because cupid carries a gun
Thought I was saved when I found you
But my descent through hell had just begun

Level one I waited patiently
Level two you moaned my name
Level three I gorged on you
Level four I staked my claim

Level five we screamed and fought
Level six my love denied
Level seven you broke my heart
Level eight held such sweet lies

Level nine was the end of me
Left bleeding on the floor
Smiling at Cupid with her gun
Still the one that I adore

(inspired by the Marilyn Manson song ‘Cupid Carries A Gun’  and Dante’s  nine circles of hell: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Heresy, Violence, Fraud, Treachery)
