Mounting desire greets my fevered mind
as I walk down the candy aisle
each M&M, each Milky Way
gives rise to my wanton smile

Baby Ruth, Pay Day too
all beckon me to a taste
Snickers bars and Jujube’s
that settle around my waist

I pass them up for other things
like carrots and celery sticks
but hear them calling from the shelf
those Red Vines and Pixie Stix

Halloween is just around the bend
so there’s plenty of bags in the store
Candy Corn and Cracker Jacks
and Peanut Butter Cups galore

Then there will be Christmas
Candy Canes are a sweet delight
Homemade Fudge and Divinity
dance in my dreams each night

But I leave without a sweet
being good for one more day
knowing that again I’ve held
those ‘candy cravings’ at bay!

I am not really a candy lover..can take it or leave it...this was a challenge from DE. I asked for some phrases and he gave me one in this poem. Can you guess which line was his?

PdV, "red vines and pixie stix" would be my guess as to DE's challenging lines...

how far off am I?

It was the first line...I'm sure he didn't think I'd write about candy with that line! LOL

Poet deVine,
I think what you gave him here is a Lickerish Twist.
Enjoyed the poem.

Ever tried to name all the candy bars you can? A hard task indeed!
