Ode to Chocolate: To Be Read Aloud

Read this out loud, slowly, to your paramour—and see what happens . . .

Ode to Chocolate

Brown creamy friend—
You contribute to
My well-being,
Soothing stimulant,
Smoothing recovery—
You race my heart
Unsludge my brain.
You are liquid pleasure,
Sweet-tongued
Inspiration to forgive—
Edible love.

Sorry, mates,
You are supplanted
By the bean of a plant
Rich, dark
Stimulant
Woven into
Luxurious
Gratification and
Oral love.

Truffles,
Eggshell delicate
Yielding to
Creamy inside—
A raison d’être.
Chocolate cheesecake
Chocolate mousse
Chocolate bar
Milk chocolate
Dark chocolate
Bittersweet—
I gratefully surrender to
Your ardor and
Sultriness.

Like lust,
Too much is consuming.
But some—
A light flirtation
With satisfaction and
Harmless
Instant love.

Passive
Passion
Erotic
Confection
Pliable
Melting
Luscious
Paramour
Melted
Amiable
Tender
Smitten
Departed
Love surrogate.
Yet, unlike carnal
Cravings,
Easily attainable
Again.
Sweet One.
Wonderful Chocolate.
