Apple strudel - poem for St Valentine’s Day

My darling,

you are the apple strudel of my eye,

naughty but nice.

And yet,

friends warn me

that you are dangerous

and I’ll live to regret

that we ever met.

I don’t agree,

my delectable extrovert.

Time will tell our fortune

and I shall be

content to get

my just dessert.

Poem from How could you know? Poems about love.  – paperback version, 14 February. By 17 February 2023 it should also be in the kindle downloads.

My explanation

This poem is just fiction. It refers to no real person.

The words might be used by someone who’s in love with a girl who may be fun but seem a little crazy. 

I’m not addressing this poem to anyone I know. I just liked playing around with the well-known but strange expression, “You are the apple of my eye”.
