R.S. Mallari

Most Wanted: CUPID


a young sweet innocent girl
on her first date
pocketbook romance on her head
only to be disappointed
she gone out with a married guy
who to blame?

a single mom
hoping for a second chance
ended up beaten
hardly alive
who to blame?

frugal man
met a socialite girl
lost everything
including his home
who to blame?

retired police man
married a loner
now he’s holding his revolver
hunting a thief
who to blame?

can all these be love?
crimes of passion,
victims of love?
Might find CUPID
and be persecuted

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
