Sweet Salvation

Written by: Simmy Lee

You ooze
Like the macaroon middles
You so delicately designed
Your hazelnut centre
Encased by something slightly more than air
Jaws biting down
Of those around you
All those hours
In a single swallow
Empty plate gratification
Sweet salvation
For a macaroon moment
Gone from now
As you lie in bed
Eating your cake
The others made
Not nearly as tenderly
It never tastes as good alone
