How is Love like a Soufflé?

They rise like the sun
when monitored with tender care,
and shine like the moon
with saccharine dust.

Molded from batter
sickeningly sweet or surprisingly savory,
they are stirred to perfection
when stark peaks
are forced to fold.

if left with nothing but
time and a back turned,
to curdle in preheated silence
under a soulless star,
they wilt like a blossom
in the devil’s hand.
