Grandma told me as she leaned over the sink

Love, honey, is like hot buttered toast

Sometimes sweet, yes! But sometimes like a lemon

Sour to the taste, yet can be turned into lemonade

Being bitter as dark chocolate

Bold as Sriracha

Love is like hot sauce

Don’t know when you’ll get burned

Like a pancake, dark and hard

Scrape away the dark and smother with syrup
