Candy Hearts Can Kill

CUTE ONE, BE MINE, LOVE ME
Valentine’s day brings them out
BE TRUE, KISS ME, HUG ME,
Sayings candy Sweethearts shout

Jumbled like a crazy quilt
Field of pastel blossoms
pink, orange, purple, green, yellow, white
and now soft brown chocolate too
Spill them out
And hear them shout
Those mocking slogans
at you

NEW LOVE, MY GUY
BABY GIRL, ONLY U
MY SWEET, ONE LOVE
That’s how candy can torture you

MISS YOU, CALL ME,
SWEET ONE, MARRY ME
How loud can candy shrieking be?

Tiny little pastel hearts
Each bit of sugared bliss
can be a bitter poison pill
when you have no one to kiss
HUG ME, BE GOOD, MY THRILL
a message that can kill

Candy Sweethearts
Can break your heart
If you are
LOVE LESS
still
