Writing Promot: Cupid

This is about song lyrics. “Cupid” by Sam Cooke is being played in the background.

I was thinking about the song lyrics and they’re really quite sweet:

Cupid draw back your bow and let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me, for me
Cupid please hear my cry and let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now I don’t mean to bother you but I’m in distress
There’s danger of me losin’ all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn’t know I exist
And this you can fix

So Cupid draw back your bow and let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me, nobody but me
Cupid please hear my cry and let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now Cupid if your arrow makes her love strong for me
I promise I will love her until eternity
I know between the two of us her heart we can steal
Help me if you will.

So Cupid draw back your bow and let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me, nobody but me
Cupid, please hear my cry and let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now Cupid don’t you hear me
Callin’ you, I need you
Cupid help me
I need you
Cupid don’t fail me

 – Sam Cooke

Wouldn’t it be fun to write a story about this? Maybe from the point of view of the guy requesting Cupids help? Maybe from the point of view of Cupid? I see a fantasy love story here, or if you want to have a bi of fun, is there a way to make this dark?
 
Writing Prompt: Pick a song and map out the lyrics. Now use that as an inspiration for a complete story.
 
Have fun.
