Love: A Recipe

written by: Joe Russo

@josephrusso8

 

You were sweet like a cupcake.
The perfect mix of sugar
(Deceit),
Water
(Anger),
Eggs
(Jealousy),
And a half cup of oil
(Lies),
Bake for 15-20 minutes
(3 months)
Or until top is golden brown.
The problem though,
Now funny,
Is that I’m addicted
To sugar.
Once I tasted you,
(I wanted more.)
