Just Lust...

                                                               forum.nationstates.com



BON BON

It's dangerous
to carry on a lifelong affair
with chocolate.

Chocolate has taught me infidelity.
A cheap piece
from a penny machine,
a Godiva truffle,
a Dove ice cream,
descending
into my mouth.

God help me.
I can go from one
to the other,
and never look back.

The last one was good,
but the next
will be best.
It will be the real thing,

the outstanding bon bon,
and it's just around the corner.

You don't have to be a sinner, just a bit of an observer.  I urge you to join me "in sin" with your creativity at Poetry Potluck.  Fun all around!!

This poem is adapted from my book of poetry, Two Ghosts.

An excellent write, temptation itself. I loved this line especially:

Chocolate has taught me infidelity.
