Cupid: Spare Another Arrow?

Image

Wherever you are dear Cupid,
Please break out your bow.
I’m just not convinced,
You’re done with one arrow.

Love can sometimes fade,
We may need a shot or two.
To revive the passionate flame,
We, at one time, knew.

Life can become distracting;
Times and people change.
Marriages and relationships fail.
Not all love remains.

I know that you are busy,
Much new love to spread.
But if it’s not too much to ask,
Could a few extra arrows you shed?

To the old veterans of love,
Who’ve been with one person for years.
So that love will flourish,
Lend us your Cupidy ears.

Shoot another arrow to reignite the spark.
We need to keep alive the love in our sometimes fickle hearts…

I Falter…

I waste not time asking why,
Explanations prove too numerous to sift.
Answers are primarily filled with opinions,
Based on varied beliefs and experiences.

But I do find myself wondering,
Confounded by the repetitive theme.
How it is, in spite of all I’ve learned.
I keep choosing what’s wrong, and faltering.

Pesky flesh, disobedient and immature soul,
In constant training I remain.
I face trials and tribulations,
I’m growing and learning each day.

At one time, mistakes brought self-condemnation,
Which tried to separate me from God.
I now focus on the gift of spiritual conviction.
God and I both know I’ll fail… A Lot!

I now move to God rather than away when I’ve erred,
Knowing only He can make me stronger.
I’m afflicted with self-focused desires,
A carnal soul, a spirit-offending impostor.

My needs and wants I seek without pause,
I trip on stones when my guard is down.
I continually try to pilot this vessel myself,
Yet, when shipwrecked, still need to be found.

I haven’t got myself together, not sure I ever will,
And I suspect my past will always strive for revival.
Temptations will tug at my soul while I have breath
I’m just grateful I have God with me through it all.
