Do you believe in Cupid’s quiver?

If so, prepare you heart to shiver

From the bitter bite of constant winter

Within this world of go-getter and lone giver.

There is no “one”...

Only no one.

I hate to crush your embellished dreams

But reality is not painted with such beautiful streams.

The story of life comprises eschewed reams.

All you feel is not what it seems...

The shimmer of rings,

The angel chorus sings,

Love songs on wings...

Life is not made of such beautiful things.

No ma’am,

There is no magic man.

There is no Dapper Dan.

Beware the perfect man,

Beware the perfect dame,

Who can decimate a heart

With a softly-spoken claim.

You may find a beauty

You might find a beast

But you can’t create love

With a bountiful feast.

Neither a bed of caressing

Nor a bouquet of charm

Could protect your spirit

From devastating harm.

I’m sorry to shatter your glass castle from where you search

And wait for love from a pinnacled perch...

But no sir,

There is no magic woman.

There is no Wonder Woman.

Beware the golden lady,

Beware the golden man,

Who can siphon a soul

By holding a hand.
