Eye Candy

your brown sugar eyes

and glances that tasted

of soft candy and vanilla

lifted away the gravity

and it spun candy floss

in shades of pastel clouds

within a heart that was

as bitterly grey as can be.

Konpeitō

Crystalline sugar

Of neon shades

Clashing distinct

Catching eyes

And tongues;

Baby carnation,

Firmament blue,

Chartreuse green,

Starrified yellow,

Diamond white.

Childish treats

For childish hearts

Rainbow pebbles

On cute display

Within small

Quaint bottles,

A sugar kiss

From a pixie

And her friend

The belle fairy.

As you crush

Them betwixt

Your teeth;

Implosions of

Sweetness and

Shocking mint

Dances like a

Fireworks display

In your mouth—

A magical aftertaste.

Sugar and Spice

I’m cynical, cantankerous, and simply severely embittered

You’re yellow honey, carnation posies, and everything else sweeter

I’m algid, a frosty bite of cold, some sombre winter snow

You’re bright sunshine, crystal lollipops, and colourful rainbows

You are striped candycanes, and I am leaves of minty pepper

A strange combination that works perfectly together

I’m dark, muddy, and bitter, like newly-ground coffee

So why don’t you go ahead and pour some sparkling sugar on me.
