Your honeyed voice
sends me thirsting,
and your sugary touch
keeps me wanting more.

Your sweet demeanor,
overwhelms me sometimes,
but your candied smile
mesmerizes me to stay.

You indulge my sweet tooth, love,

Your practiced insincerity
is as sweet as spoiled apples;
It leaves a decaying aftertaste
that plagues my mouth.

Your quiet dismissal
is sugar-coated with charm;
It feeds my insecurity,
and refuels my doubt.

Your cold shoulder
is my hard candy fix;
It bruises my ego,
and crushes my tongue.

You see,
you indulge my sweet tooth, love
you make my insides rot.
