Cupid's Curse

Cupid missed you and instead pierced my heart.
I once bled red, now I bleed black.
I have seen the light. How can I go back?
Oh cupid! How you betray me?
How you twist your arrow deep into my heart?
All I want is you,
But you want everything but me.
I would give you the moon.
And if that did not satisfy you,
I would give you the stars.
And if that did not satisfy you,
I would not stop until I had every single star in my hand.
They were meant to orbit your neck,
Instead I see darkness.
I have every single star in my hand,
But they are forever lost.
