Disobeying Venus
He finds cause to bleed
Beautiful Psyche looks for love
He plants the sacred seed

Cupid finds delight
Keeping secrets from his quest
She obeys his commands
In hope, she will be blessed

When sisters prey upon her
Their jealousy prevails
Psyche grabs an arrow
On her lover, she assails

He escapes, her only fear
Flies away, and leaves her be
Seems Cupid’s betrayal of the gods
Was an act of conspiracy

Immortals have their way
In the magic that they carry
Human’s leave their mark
Upon their adversary
