Eyes appear too big for their sockets
Pupils enlarge as irises darken
becoming twin orbs of glowing black onyx
Tiny hairs at the nape of the neck
brush against each other
in their efforts to stand at attention
Sending chills down the spine
undulating outwards in ripples of tremors
flowing just beneath the skin
glistening with pearls of perspiration
Hands clutch    Knees lock in place
A caricature of a smile on the face
Haphazard fluttering heartbeat
The rhythm stampeding over itself

No!    No!    No!    screams the brain
Its cries falling on deaf ears
as taste buds overrule
Remembered sensation sets them popping
Saliva glands over-reacting
As another dieter tumbles happily 
down the tubes into chocolate hell
Milk chocolate in the mouth
Dark in one hand    White in the other
Chocolate wafers    Chocolate mint
Hollow chocolates    Filled chocolates
Hollow belly now filled with chocolate

Into a candy store is no place to step
for the faint of heart    and stout of hip

    Hi, MOnterey, thanks for seeing some of my newer poems. I always love getting your sincere comments. Wish more Soupers gave such thoughtful care with their comments.

    I know that weakness myself. I once ate chocolate ice cream by the gallons weekly. As a young man I burned of the calories! Now I eat chocolate maybe once a month.. Great write my friend!!

    haha, that first stanza had me wondering what it could be. I knew it was for "taste" and yet it reminded me of myself ready to embark on a fun and scary carnival ride! I think I am not a chocoholic from this description but I can imagine someone who is feeling this way. GREAT fun descriptions. So nice to see a poem of yours up.
