I like candy because she is short and she is sweet and she satisfies
but I don’t get the feeling that candy likes me.
She is pleasure
but despite her sweetness
she does not yearn for me like I do her.
She leaves residue
in places I don’t want it
but I don’t think about that while she’s here.
When she’s gone I feel I’ll never see her again
though I don’t depend on her
and as such expect nothing -
- could it be that she
is all that was ever meant for me?
