Candyland Street

Use the name of a street for inspiration.

The taste of bitter chocolate brings back memories of unrequited love.
It happened that day, a matter of fact,
on Candyland Street where he was taken aback.
And if by some chance they again do meet,
will his heart soften and fall to his feet?
Will her sweet face melt his suit of armor,
on Candyland Street, where he once charmed her.
Will he rise above the urge to kiss her peppermint lips, fight off all elements  resembling anything like love?
Would he find safety on the corner of 5th Avenue and Milky Way,
or meet another at the intersection of Hershey Street and Licorice  Lane?


  1. Oh, very sweet! Love those sticky street names 🍬🍬🍬🍭

  2. Candyland Street seems to be filled with sweets.

  3. Nice line: "Will her sweet face melt his suit of armor" and the memories bitter chocolate bring back.
