Cupid’s Arrow

You and I?

We converse in insults

in ‘fuck offs’

and ‘get losts’

some sentences

only half formed,

half thought

punctuated with half-hearted

shift! Move it! shoves.

You and I

know each other



Miss Grumpy Pants

and the prat.

I know your flaws

are no worse

than mine.

We’re eccentric,



and nothing about us

makes it easy

living with someone else.

We’d destroy

any other lover.

You and I


Really dam well.

So next time

I’m snarking,

your barking

and we’re sulking,


you’re the only one

I can bother

to stay mad at

all night.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


  1. This reminds me of something my husband used to say, “Love is knowing whose sh*t you are willing to put up with and who is willing to put up with yours.” He was a true romantic, that man.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
