Candied

d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille #166. “I Like Candy”

 

Candied

 

 

I’ve been candied

A hard shell has been poured

over my soft center, protecting it

from constant poking and prodding

Hiding in the creamy sweetness

of my heart is a tiny morsel of

hardness, waiting to defend it from

any who reach too deeply

  1. Oh I like this analogy. I’ve always found it interesting the way everyone’s protective coatings are unique.. to their personalities and what life has thrown their way.
