Sugar Blues

Written by: cayetano young

Your love is a candy
Sweet as peach
Better than tales and fables
A way better than Magnolia wine

Your love is but a candy
Sweet as milk
Better than an urban circus
It beats the hell out of my morning breath

But I always find myself
Beside the stairwell
Sprinkled with dirt
Spattering a few red drops
Waiting for one last breath

For your love is nothing
But could then be a candy
After a minute or two
Even in the speed of thought
It gently melts like an ice cream
Against my ruptured tongue
as any faithful sugar does
