Candy-Coated Solitude

Caramel dreams,
candy-coated screams,
cotton candy clarity,
and Coke
bottle blues.

Smoke swollen with sorrow,
savoring secret solitude.
Melting matter mindlessly

Who are you?

Bittersweet candy girl,
spiked with salt and sulphur.
A pure white devil,
who desires to live harder.

Comfortably ignorant,
yet tainted with truth.
Bound by heaven's blood forever,
I will not lose you.

This Poems Story

This poem was written for a class assignment twenty-eight years ago; I was eighteen. I still have the sheet of paper it was first penned on, now yellowed and frayed. I've kept it as a reminder of the first time I felt my voice come through on a page. It was inspired by my sister's struggle and how I could relate. This is my first submission to be published, because the message unlike the page will never age.
