Heart’s Desire

I justify
what my heart

The anticipation
an aphrodisiac

Your scent

Drunk with yearning
You tempt me

and again

Not forbidden

but remorse
pangs me

As your sweetness
passes my

Angel and demon


You have taken

yet again

    They say chocolate is like sex. If you’ve never had it, you never miss it, but once you’ve had it – you miss it!!!
