Candy - Poem by Alan Gilbert


Candy you're a heartful
The child of a gypsy star,
Gazing through a frosted web
Describing who you are.
Many think to know you
Seeing what you want to show,
Spinning ripples on the sea
Unfathomed depths below.

Breathless in confusion
Chords and colours fill your mind,
Unscripted scores of fantasy
That leaves their world behind.
Candy they can't see you
Letting light come in between,
They're dazzled in a spectrum
Misinterpreting the dream.
