The candy was made
With the bittersweet tears
Of a novice at love
Who could not escape the hurt
Of her failed romance.

But she will not be bitter
And should she see him again
She will act in a jocund manner
So her first love will never know
How he broke her heart in two

Written for these daily prompts: My Vivid Blog (candy), Word of the Day Challenge (bittersweet), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (novice), Ragtag Daily Prompt (escape), The Daily Spur (bitter), and Your Daily Word Prompt (jocund).
