Candy Hearts | A Poem by Isabella Huhn

She scraped out our dusty
Crumpled old innards,
Gave us hearts made of candy
Later ripped out with swords.
She tied up our eyes
To hide us from pain
Then tried to, through lies,
Revise us our eyes.
To see the world through gumdrops;
Sugar-coated misery
Balloons always pop,
Such treacherous beauty.
Sometimes they wonder
Is it pain that’s the foe?
Or the sugar all about her,
Sweet cotton so subtle
It’s a torturous stow
Of death, and lost, blind cuddles.
