Harlequinn

With a taste ever so sweet, and a sweetness ever so satisfying
Such a unique presence, immediately telling what is underneath
At first glance I see a rugged exterior, Hiding behind a special armor
You are a little rough around the edges, not perfectly smooth and pure, though who is?
We all have our flaws and wounds of life that all can see, so long as we do not judge one another based on those small imperfections alone
You may be tough on the outside, but on the inside I know how delightful you really are
Soon not even that strong outward layer can keep me from you
If we were meant to be apart, we would not have been brought together
I could try to walk away but now I fear it is too late
Just one taste of you and I know I am in paradise
There is no need to hide or watch from a distance
The timing is perfect, you are ripe for my picking
If I can't have you then no one should
This is the day I admit how much I have wanted you
How many days I have waited for this moment to arrive
Seasons will change and plants will wither
There will be wonderful summer days we spend together
And there will be times we go so long without one another
But know this: I promise to be there. I will come to you when I need comfort and when your own days of despair come. Some days you will feel like the world is eating you alive, but know even then, I will be there.
I won't walk away because you are not the tallest or the strongest
You can grow into a short, plump brute but I will still love you
But I will not let you waste away like some men do in their later years
I picked you because I have faith you are the one for me
I chose wisely, I look at you and I can tell I did well for myself.

I am sure you have figured out by now that I am talking about a delicously ripe pineapple.

Oh you thought I was talking about a man? Oh well I assume you read with complete sarcasm then?
