Sweet as Candy: A Novel in Verse

By @Madison


Summer is a welcome change

Bringing three months of laziness

After nine months of scurrying from one class to another

Carrying home mountains of homework.

I really use that opportunity to my advantage during the first two weeks of break

Spending my days with Izzy

Baking, talking, and assessing wallpaper patterns and paint swatches

Until she gets called to help with someone’s home renovation

Leaving me to my own devices.

That’s when I escape the house

To spend time with Todd

Always letting him know that I could only stay until Izzy notifies me that she’s on her way back home.

Most of the time

He has no problem with this.

We always make quick work of the time that we have.
