Ingredients of Life

Sweetness and sourness of life
depends on the seasoning of emotions.
We are blessed with the gift of birth,
but our thoughts are processed
using different ingredients.

We all explore paths to euphoria,
but passengers we pass by,
sprinkle their own nourishing memories,
upon our picnic of existence.

Pain persecutes everyone,
despite the diversity of
gender, colour or faith,
but it tastes the same.

Yet love is never the same flavour.
Romantic aromas can leave bitter side effects.

Vibrations of a heart breaking,
sound the same, but some cracks are deeper,
some wounds heal quicker -
some forever remain.

Delicacy of regret is one we never forget.

It's embroidered on our tongues,
reflecting through bitter breaths,
as flashbacks echoing in dark corridors,
resemble rotting cuisine.

Our essence is simply cultivated fodder,
within a vulnerable universe,
feasting on a substance of snacks,
awaiting our best before date.

I believe that it is our destiny to cross paths with certain people in our lifetime, both the good and the bad. In the end, this truly makes us who we are... You've given the reader much to ponder on with this interesting poem. Keep up the great writing, my friend!

Bitter tastes can be left with a loved one, unintentionally, but once something nasty is said, there can be no regret, even if it was said in the heat of a moment and results in heart break for the tongue is sharp - some can heal quicker but some never! So let it be never be never, stop, think, then speak. How nice to hear from you my friend. Your visits are luminous and your writes always so humanness SO. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

SO, congratulations on your POTD! "Twilight Aurora" 7/15/17 10481 reads and your first post is just as amazing as this gem. I noticed this under one of the poets comments and I agree with it. (Your note at the end of poem is a bit shocking to read. I never thought such things would be happening here... Seems like humans all over the world are same. education level, age, literature etc. do not bring a change in nature of man. Better ignore) Best ~Anaya
