Stranger words that tease

image

These words of a stranger
Leave me with the taste of chocolate
Or an aftertaste of wanting
Wanting …..
chocolate
Melted into cool ,thin words
Placed upon my tongue
Words
             that should have been
mine
Had I not been 
                       too early
                            Too late
                                 Too hungry

Warm chocolate syrup poured into my ear
              Expanding
                                  my consciousness
                  My jealousy
My                                                      fear

    • I really could taste the chocolate 🙂
      I put green eyes ( jealousy ) in the midst of the delicious chocolate words.

      I can’t really remember what I was for halloween as a kid. I remember that those cheap costumes and masks were incredibly hot.
      Once I was Frankenstein.
      —- HEY that sounds like a poem
      In my adult life I have only dressed up once.
      I was” the burning bush” from the Old Testament. I wore orange shirt and shoes and wrapped myself in plastic plants.
