Sweet and Sour

Sweet and Sour

written by: Gabriela Docan


When angels fed us with candies:
words became sweet,
colourful like pansies –
adding to heart another beat.

When demons fed us with starch:
we grew full of ourselves,
our love became a death march –
the heart struggled on dusty shelves.

When angels held our hands:
we flew away in a balloon,
above magic fairy lands –
the heart was in a silky cocoon.

When demons held our hands:
it was the end of love,
we perished in swampy lands –
the heart burnt on a stove.
