Riddled with Arrows Issue 5.1: Candy Hearts & Little Literary Love Notes ~ Day 2

Eyeliner Boy

The well-heeled eyeliner boy
Grips electric mesh in sweating fist
His masculinity fluttering silk
His mouth wide to eat applause

Break me open like a candy heart;
I write too shiny outside.
I need you to dissolve my words in your lyrics
All the sweet hollows where I sink

Glam rock sacrifice
Your bubblegum sheen
Was always springtime snow:
Shocking cold, melting as you fall.
