Wonderfully named! :)
"Before exiting the room, knowing you'll soon express the same incongruous cliché that a clock
With no power source is only correct twice a day and you need my electric love to function again" - my favourite part.
Another great poem/peice overall! Full of depth.

Thanks for reviewing my poem. This poem grabbed my attention by the title. 'Cupid makes us stupid' is indeed true. I really like this poem and I do like your writing style with the longer sentences and your wide range of vocabulary. Very nice read, keep writing! :)

Haha, love the title; love's making a fool of people is slightly hackneyed, but your wordplay is refreshing :)
I liked the tone here, and your line lengths are getting longer by the day! Tis a very different experience of poetry xD

This was very well written. I loved the first and third stanzas esppecially. Your choice of words made an excellent descriptive point regarding the title. Keep it Up!

Ain't it the truth? We can't love with or without love. But you said it much better than most, putting a smiley face on a broken heart.

I hate that fat little boy too, but love is a stupid thing anyway. great piece.

I couldn't tell if this was a break-up poem or a I hate-you-but-love-you poem or somewhere between the two. Still I loved it and it described the situation between the two of you perfectly.

Nice! Just one suggestion, maybe put some periods in. I noticed the last stanza ended with one, but the other two didn't. You write so beautifully, it's vey elegant and smooth. Keep it up!

"To gently place my vulnerability on the footpath for strangers." I like the idea that love makes us vulnerable to the whims of others.

Love the title "Cupid Makes Us Stupid" — it's true, hormones dampen cerebral functions. But, living in the land of the Lotus Eaters ain't bad either (sometimes.)
| steffxnie chapter 1 . 1/10/2010
Hehee, I really like the title. :)
I find it hard to read because I find the sentences too long but I think that is your style. I like the metaphor of the clock and needing electric love to function. It's a really interesting idea.
'each morning I'm forced to gently place my vulnerability on the footpath for strangers to stomp all over' I really like this line.
Write on girl. ;)

Sometimes I use poetry as a way to examine too big emotions or solidify too confused thoughts...when I read this one that's what it felt like you were doing to me. And doing it well. Your word choice is always surprising and fresh and calls other people to examine themselves.
So hopefully, I'm not stomping on your vulnerability (because I know there is that danger), rather I'd say you put up sign post. And I'm glad I read it.
