Cupid and Psyche Part 1

More On Cupid and Psyches Part 1 | Part 2


I am Psyche, 30. I am now married (happily, I guess), though this story is not about my hubby. It is a wonderful tale that happened once upon a time.

Many would be thinking why the hell am I writing about a past love. I often have dreams about a man – I call him Cupid - but it was just recently that I dreamt about him several times, and it really bothered me. In my dreams, he was almost within my reach but was gone the moment I had realized he was there. I always wake up miserable and heart-broken. I cannot forget the dream for several days, and when I had gotten over it, I would dream about him again. I had tried to bury him in the innermost part of my superego; however, he still emerges from time to time. I guess I cannot just suppress a very beautiful – yet painful – romance that took place a long time ago. So I decided to let it out by weaving a tale about it.

It should have been true love. It was platonic and pure; it was deep and intense; it was gentle and honest. Something took place between us that we did not have to talk about, that we did not have to put into words. It just blossomed, and we just felt and savor it. We never kissed, nor held hands, nor embraced. But it was like kissing him everyday whenever I smell his perfume; it was as if we were holding hands whenever I hear his voice; it was like embracing him whenever I look at his eyes. It’s as if our hearts could talk and understand each other.

It was almost perfect. ALMOST. But he was 17 and I was 21. And he was my student.

It was my first year of teaching. Our beginning was quite hazy to me. I think it all started through a childish and corny chain letter. Anyone who received the letter has to recopy and send it to seven ‘special’ people, and also gave each an angel figurine, and the cycle goes on. Cupid was a quiet and respectful student who seldom speaks. I was surprised to receive a chain letter from him. Being a teacher, I do not want my students to spend on unnecessary things so I ignored it and discouraged them on spreading the letter. One day, Cupid’s friends teased me that he was so eager of finding the perfect angel figurine to give me. I just smiled when he blushed and this time, I noticed him from a different view. A few days later, he gave me a Cupid figurine and everything changed since then, especially when the rest of his classmates started teasing him. But instead of being embarrassed, he became different. He turned into an active and funny student full of life. I was so happy for him, happy and flattered that I was part of that great change.

He and his friends started accompanying me on my way home. It was then that I realized that the kids I scowled at and scorned in the mornings during classes were young adults who had different visions and dreams in life. I learned a lot from them and in the process got closer to Cupid, whom I considered the most mature of them (sounds like I want to justify). One day, his friends had other activities to do so he was the only one to go along with me in going home. He had so many stories to tell, making me laugh my heart out along the way. These interactions were repeated until he is the only one who comes with me every afternoon, except weekends. We became friends. Then I broke up with my boyfriend when he started getting jealous and mad at my students. I didn’t care if he was devastated. I didn’t care if we have been together for three years. I didn’t care at anything at all because for the first time, I am really, truly happy.

Cupid and I had been together during several school activities and as I watch his every move, I admired him. His ways made me dream of finding a man that would be as respectful and gentle as he was (and is). He is a gentleman in its true sense. He pulled chairs and opened doors for women; he knew when to speak and when to listen; he respected everyone and didn’t argue with anyone.
