Eros (Cupid) is the god of passion, desire, and (sometimes) love. He's Captain Mojo. When you hear a god described like that, you might think that any story he pops up in will end happily. Two people will meet, fall in love, skip through fields of flowers, make babies, and all that good stuff. However, this is hardly ever what goes down when Eros comes a knockin'. Instead, the mischievous little guy causes trouble everywhere he goes – sometimes, for no better reason than his own personal amusement.

and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands"

"Gather ye rosebuds as ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
Tomorrow will be dying."
