oh, chocolate 

how I love you 
how my body 
craves you 
how I delight 
rubbing my tongue against your sweetness 
and melting ecstasy 

then I grieve 
when the wrapper 
is empty 
and wished the time 
would last 
a little longer....

so I reach for another 
and eat 
with guilt and shame 
I now feel a buzz 
and dolling senses 
I space out 
and decide to begin a new life 
with inner joy ......
