I’ve got this arrow
curled around my finger
like Apollo’s heart
& your nicknames
engraved on the inside
of my lungs.

I don’t want to write
pretty little stanzas
or pick at the seams
of your poetry
like some deadbeat
psychology major -

I want to
scribble profanities
all over everything;
shoot down your moon
& wear her
like a charm
around ink stained

I want to
   take you
       to the stars,
                  & leave you there.

I think, overall, that this poem is great and conveys your message well, but like ALL poetry, it can always use improvement. Some of the images are a little cliche, or are so close to being cliche that it diminishes the impact of the originality of the images and metaphors here.

I do think the poem has a good flow, and has the required closure at the end. So tweak it and send it back out into the world. I am sure it will go from good to great one day. I love where you're going with this, so surprise me.

is the arrow a reference to a tatoo on your finger ?
