A Taste of Love

by cassie hughes   May 10, 2023

Candy floss kisses ‘neath carnival skies
Galloping horses, wild musical rides
A bright golden prize swings in aqueous cage
The race of a heart in first loves heady stage

Musical laughter the fun of the fair
Diesel fumes acrid and warm on the air
Lost in the mirrors maze heart standing still
Lone and rejected the bitterest pill

Umami tracks, clandestine in the dark
Racing away, music jangled and sharp
Bleeding and broken heart cast out to sea
Splash of the waves hiding unheeded plea

Acid drop memories of sideshow deceit
Misunderstood game with dishonest conceit
Raindrops blur the sky causing colours to blend
And the carnival closes, heart soured, the end.
