Ode to Chocolate

Oh, insidious chocolate
You consume my thoughts a lot
You captivate my yearning brain
And drive my tastebuds all insane
As a siren temptress taunts
Your chocolate icing lingerie flaunts
A silky sweet seductive form
That's always smooth and uniform
You weigh so heavily on my heart
A love that only death can part

    this is one I saw back in March. It's your only personification poem. I did a few chocolate ones too in my time. Gosh, when you think of all the themes we may have covered in our poet's lives, it staggers the mind.

    Oh this is a yummy verse, Jon!:) "As a siren temptress taunts", makes me think of the chocolate buttermilk cake I'd made for my brother's birthday, he'd said he had given chocolate up for Lent, but couldn't resist. Now he says he's only given up chocolate bars. Hope all's well with you! Mikki

    Another funny one Jon... it seeems you have an infinite source of verse... Terry (BTW, I'm nuts about chocolate...in paricular I love chocolate with embedded nuts, served after a short stay in the fridge (the choco, not me) so nthat the choco is slightly hard and snaps between my teeth, and chips of nut...)

    Cavanaugh Avatar Jon A Cavanaugh Date: 1/18/2013 3:48:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thank you Terry. I going through a dry spell right now. It happens. I just hope it doesn't take 5 years before I start writing again like it did the last time I stopped. I will still stop by to read poems though. I'm just busy with other things right now.
