Gingerbread Man and the Lollipop Kid

Quicksand feet and molasses hands...
gingerbread woman
all sticky sweet.
Glazed eyes and candy lips,
arms outstretched in an empty hug.
Cinnamon heart and painted on smile,
waiting on the marshmallow man,
with his corn syrup promises,
and kiss of Maple sugar.
Lollipop kid in Lemon and Lime,
trendy young lad ahead of his time,
Licorice arms and Cherry heart,
Jolly Rancher style and melted dreams.
Dime store romance,
with the Bullseye girl.
Eyes of Ginger and soul of Caramel.
Living life in the brownie house.
