You are my life and in that I believe Always my love will be only for you Flattering though that sounds I must confess My first love is chocolate - sad but true Sensual visions to capture the feel Bringing the contours of wind sculpted plains Hold that thought even though I love it so much Must let the dog out before he drives me insane Shimmering soft on the eclipse of love Cloudless these evenings of star sprinkled mist Just looked - no lustrous stars in this sooty sky But stay for chocolate drizzled cake - I do insist I drink in your fragrance Tasting the flavors, your moistened lips I heard something of interest today, Chocolate doesn’t go to the hips Kiss me ‘midst the maples Kiss me ‘long the shore Kiss me o’ my precious one Now and ev’r more Its thirsty work I must confess This kissing and walking along the shore A chocolate sundae sounds rather good At that quaint little place that I do adore? I see, I see, in front of me Dessert, dessert, set out for free My! you do know how to set the mood I can’t go past this - you do know me The night feels right the lights are turned low What’s this the video has stopped? Hello!! Johnny has left the building? Just when I wanted more No matter- my debonair poet of delight Conjure me up some George Clooney tonight Well set aside your chocolate pie For Hollywood is coming by And as you explore your favorite star I’ll enjoy that Hershey bar
Oh Fickle Heart chocolate second placed? From gold to silver - it’s now displaced
Footnote: I’ve used George Clooney as he is globally acclaimed as the most favored flavor in the ratings. Personally, I favor the more 'Bono' type - (I love his voice) Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician. Acknowledgement: My deepest appreciation to Chris Green, poet extraordinaire for sparing some of his wonderful talent and collaborating with me to bring you this arrangement.

I love the nonchalance of the second voice. The piece works wonderfully. It has the style of a 1960s romantic comedy.

Naughty, Naughty ! You know whoever said that chocolate doesn't go to the hips lied. So its dark chocolate for me from now on, strictly for the health benefits. Nice to see you Carole, thanks for the visit and lovely comments....Maria xx

After reading this delicious poem, I might be converted to eating chocolate again, maybe the Hershey bar will do me fine. Seriously though this is a wonderful collab, creative, delightful and appealing, congrats Maria and Chris.

Lisa, as usual you bring a smile and such a lovely breath of fresh air. I'm sure that I speak from both of us here. Now,which flavor have you decided on? The Depp or the Clooney? I think it would be safe to say that both are equally yummy Lol....Your friend always Maria xxx

I dont even like George Clooney, still had to cater for the other women of the world. He still gets voted one of the sexiest men in Hollywood. Danny DeVito is pretty cool, I do like him. Thanks WW, both from Chris and me, it was fun...Maria

Do I see a chocolate flirt in italics! I enjoyed this collaboration which has a light romantic and witty side to it. Noticed the rhyme applied to consecutive couplets. ~ I co-wrote a 'chocolate' poem with Eileen some months back, called Indulgent Love: https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/indulgent_love_784440 Regards // paul

You do indeed Paul. I have been known to tango with the Chocolate God, but I gave him up when he lied about the chocolate not going to the hips...it did . So these days its only dark chocolate, strictly for the health benefits.I'm looking forward to reading your poem Paul. Thanks for the wonderful comment...Maria

Aww! come on Darren, Bono has so much more sex appeal, don't you think? Who wouldn't go for the voice? So glad that you got a laugh out of this. From Chris and me a big thank you...Maria

thanks WW, really disappointed though , it wouldn't let me embed the music that I wanted to use, so had to use the faster number. Thanks for the lovely poetic comment...Maria & Chris
