Cupid’s Ultimate Mistake

Note: The following is one of several poems I found on a website geared to gay and lesbian youth that I liked very much way back in 1996. As I have started rebuilding the blog, I want to include these poems. I tried unsuccessfully to contact the poets for their permission. If this is your poem, I would love to hear from you.
Cupid's Ultimate Mistake by Mike

Eros in all of his stupidity
Shot the wrong arrow into my poor heart
Misdirecting all my cupidity
Limiting my chances right from the start
I've alienated some of my friends
Because of Cupid's sad misadventure
And caused more wounds than I can ever mend
I wish I was free of this sad censure
It seems to me now I can only mope
Because all my chances for love are poor
But I don't want to be a misanthrope
For I'm bound to find love in the future
I blame my problems on Cupid's dumb stunt
If I ever find him, I'll kill the runt
