chocolate and love

gold foiled rabbit
smooth dark chocolate beneath
anticipating
mouth savoring the richness
but hollowness disappoints

fermenting

acrimonious words sting
depths of stomach
sweetly given chocolates
melt-smoothly-in-the-same-mouth luscious
now curdle bitterly

metaphors and similies

To me, you are

warm rain
sweeping through
the barren desert

a fine mist seeping
into freshly turned
rich dark earth

fine chocolate
melting on my tongue
decadent and indulgent

the fire well stoked
hot in the early hours
of a bitterly cold morn

kisses brushed
softly across
the nape of my neck

tiny dust motes
basking golden in the sun
when before
they had passed unnoticed

like these moments,
I love you
