'10 Candy Corn


Candy Corn

A prominent combination of colors guide your eyes to a certain direction
There you savored your scrumptious prize out of all the stores selection

I watched you breathe as your body and your face gestured an O M G!
"An amazing sight develops as if a climax seemed near from, a candy?"

One by one you toss in your mouth as you roll your eyes in gratification
Later I learned of your true love for the taste, then came lolly amputation

No questions to why you only devour the yellow, disposing of the rest
"Have to add it must be the taste and color your mouth wants to molest"

I smiled, humored in my head, watching, as you relished in sugar elation
Biting away then licking your lips, staring me down as your next selection

And there I go, closer to you, knowing I can't compete with those confections
So, kisses I steal, punish your sultry lips, all this during your sweet obsession

What a provocative event, "beholding" a candy liable for this steaming hearty stir...
"I am the yellow, your are the white, the orange is our love, which holds us together"

The poem made me have an 'Awwwww' moment, which I uttered out loud and subsequently had to explain to everyone else in the room.

Very adorable, a pleasure to read.
