Do You Deserve My Arrow?

Cupid's Doubt

by Raoul D'Harmental

Valentines Art Contest Contest Entry 
Happy Sunday to you all and Valentine's Day in advance (if you celebrate it). This is an image of Cupid debating for once if you deserve an arrow in you heart :) Here's a poem to accompany this. Happy viewing and reading (if you do). R

If I should aim and launch a dart ,
And lodge it deep within your heart,
What would you do when wild Desire
Soars within you and roars like fire?

Would you, when beguiled by a crush,
Stoke and coax it blindly to rush
Headlong into Obsession's thrall
To flounder at Rejection's wall?
Would you when spurned refuse to turn
It back but choose to let it burn
In vain and smoulder and stagnate,
Or die or even turn to Hate?

Or would you strive instead to tame
Desire's fire till as a flame,
Sole and steadfast, it burns alone
And stops your heart turning to stone?
And would you with Patience await
That other flame the winds of Fate
Would blow your way when yours in turn
Seeks in two hearts, not one to burn?
