Inspired by Jon Cavanaugh's "Ode to Chocolate". What's the subject matter? Am I teasing you, or just being cryptic? Is the last line literal or figurative? Maybe it's meant to be ambiguous ..... or maybe not.
Near the lobby in the great room
We first make our rendezvous
A breathy trip up to my stateroom
And I am at last alone with you
I breathe your fragrant muskiness
As I tease off your tenuous cover
And reveal the lustrous duskiness
Of your dark body to your lover
As your wrap falls to the floor
And in all your glory you disrobe
The hungry demon waits no more
And I encup your tempting globe
I cannot think what may transpire
Shall I regret today's caprice?
But I cannot vanquish my desire
And sweet passion will not cease
Deferred until tomorrow all guilt trips
And now, my luscious chocolate... to my lips!
