Stained by Cherries

I’d rather have my heart stained by cherries
Than soaked in chocolate.
For cherries are sweet
And red –
The color of my heart.
If my heart is soaked with chocolate
It may seem like a treat for all
But really it’s a heart covered in chocolate.

I’d rather my eyes be stained by cherries
Than soaked in chocolate.
I think I could see through the stain
To a world that is rose colored.
But a chocolate covered covered world-
Whether tinted with one color dye, all white or all dark-
May seem like a treat for all,
But it’s a world I can’t see.

I’d rather my hands be stained by cherries
Than soaked in chocolate.
But why would my hands be soaking in chocolate?
That’s kind of bizarre…
But stained by cherries – hmmm…
They would look pink, maybe.

I’d rather my lips be stained by cherries
Than soaked in chocolate.
Nope, I don’t, actually.
The opposite, rather.
I’d rather my lips be soaked in chocolate
Than stained by cherries.
I would want to keep licking my lips.
(And maybe I’d find a man better that way!)
But if they were stained by cherries,
It would be so unattractive
Chapped-looking lips.
No one would kiss me that way.
