Suicide no. 81: Cupid is Helping Us Pay the Debt

Suicide no. 81: Cupid is Helping Us Pay the Debt

–by Derek Alan Wilkinson

 

Cupid’s arrow struck a vein:

a token-Prozac stimulant to heartache and pain.

Death’s defining moment is the moment it struck:

pitiful and sinful, we’re all out of luck.

 
 

Fuckin’ suicidal, homicidal, we’re just having fun.

Don’t let what they say about young lovers

make you draw out your gun.

 
 

Yet.

  

Never mind the parents’ protests:

they’re one in the same.

Evolution, mishaps, genocide, or incest:

It’s all part of the game:

 
 

Debt.

  

Evolution’s what we’re not yet,

we’re part of the debt.

Suicide or homicide,

we’re not done yet.

 
 
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cupid’s Arrow.”

      1. No shit. Well I am pretty sure I am not faster than a bullet. But there is only a hole where my heart is supposed to be. So if he wants to fill it with metal, so be it.
