Turpentine Kisses

Cupid hath pulled back his sweetheart's bow
To cast divine arrows into her soul
To grab her attention swift and quick
Or morrow the marrow of her bones be thick
With turpentine kisses and mistaken blows

See the devil may do as the devil may care

He loves none sweeter as sweeter the dare
Her mouth the mischief he doth seek
Her heart the captive of which he speaks
So note all ye lovers in love with the sound
Your world be shattered with nary a note
Of one cupids arrow under your coat

And in the land of star crossed lovers

And barren hearted wanderers
Forever lost in forsaken missives and satan's pull
We seek the unseekable and we speak the unspeakable
Our hopes dead gathering dust to dust
In faith, in compassion, and in love 
This song "Cupid de Locke" by the Smashing Pumpkins circa 1995 represents so much high school heart break, romantic fantasy, and vivid imagery for me.  I am such a sucker for Valentines Day, just as much as I am a hopeless romantic. Hearts and kisses, ruffles and lace, love letters and Shakespeare, my head in the clouds.
Listen to it here.
