He was kindly cruel
Offering candy not gruel
Granting all wishes
Including doing the dishes!

Then one a sunny day he left
With your independence theft
You lay helpless and wanting
Lost in thoughts haunting

Arms now weak and disabled
While feelings pique enabled
Heart is distantly disconnected
While the soul is negatively neglected

Who is your kind candyman?
Who keeps your heart in his hand
Twisting his love like a candycane
Around the soul to diminish and wane

Thank yous to Paint Sparkles Draw and Fotor for making the Candy Cane drawing possible.
