He Shot Me Down

12 01 2012

I was a high-flying plane

A migratory bird

A hot air balloon

Happy as a clown

But then he shot me down

Down, Down, Down

Still happy as a clown

A very stupid clown

I fell in love with the ground

Terra firma was nice

But pure joy has a price

A love swollen heart

I was told would suffice

So small a fee

I seemed to me

I had traded my heart for lies

And watched my fantasy

Unravel before my eyes

That cruel boy

He shot me down

With arrows dipped

In liquid lies of love

But I escaped

Higher, Higher, Higher

And patched myself up

Love is something

Of which I’ve had enough

With arrows dipped

In liquid lies of love

Thank you!! Sometimes a set rhyme scheme simply does not convey the emotion.

Beautifully written
Sometime Cupids arrows are dipped in poison
But we all still fall to his arrows and his darts

What a beautiful read. I had to read it twice. Musical and profound. We can convince ourselves on just about anything, I hope love can be found again.

Vampire Weather

Pierced upon a winter’s eve
By unrestrained artillery
To fall below and strike the ground
I know the sound of “shot me down”

Beautiful, Andrea, in a very gripping sort of fashion. It reminds me of the Audio Bullys song “Shot Me Down” with Nancy Sinatra. A stirring thought. Brilliant!

I love your response, I haven’t heard that song but I’ll go search it on youtube
