Sweet Like Candy

by Robert Seminara

Like the sweetest sweet, you turn my teeth to rotting lumps of bone. Like lova and the hottest heat, you burn and turn my heart to stone. Love you? Any day or night you choose. Love me back, now that's another matter true? I gather my pennies, few as they be, to win your favor, paying the chocolatier. Fear, never me, I'm a fool as you can see, my hand outstretched, with sweets melting at your feet. Laughing you say, silly child, I'm a girl, and I only eat the hearts of boys.
