Candy Hurts

If someday, somewhere

Children come and ask me about you

What am I going to say?

Should I tell them

That love used to be so sweet

Sweet as candies

Yet so bitter, it made me cry

"How can sweets make tears?

How can candies never blame?”

What should I say?


Should I tell them that

Sweets are not sweets

Tears are not tears

Love can never be blamed


They would reply:

"Oh, when we grow up

And meet our sweethearts

We don't say we are in love

We just say,

Candy hurts me."
