sweets for you, my love

sweets for you, my love

sweets to sweeten your heart

to soften it

to soften you

to my reluctance

my stubbornness

for the moments I will choose me

freeze you out

hurt you

make you feel unloved.


Take these sweets love

let them soften you

savour that sugar

let it settle

let that syrupy sweetness be the shield

for my harsh unkindness.


let these sweets remind you

that I am sweet,

and that

I love you.


These sweets are for you my love
