Sweet icing, but bitter cake

Water,
cocoa powder,
unsalted butter,
and vanilla extract
make sweet icing.

But,
icing on cake
is only a cloth
and not the cake,
you really crave to taste.

Most folks are
attractive,
on the outside
A type to gaze at,
and be mesmerized

A definition
of magnanimous
sexy and fine,
ravishingly hot
making sunshine hide.

But,
taking a bite,
and tasting inside
They fall short,
way far from expectation

So,
do not be moved
by the things you see
Not all pretty
have a pleasant beauty.
