What Chocolate Means To Me - Poem by Arti Chopra

The fridge beckons once again
mylove for things sweet is my bane
I think, I reason, but then I surrender,
all good intentions are torn asunder,
in goes, one square, an explosion of taste
the rich hard chocolate melts into a heavenly paste
and as I swirl it around my mouth
east and west and north and south
a shiver runs down my spine
a feeling headier than any wine
I savour every morsel small
and then i relise its not fun at all,
to stop at only one,
the delight has just begun
another takes its place
my senses begin to race,
the dark stuff is too good
would stop short if I could
and before I know it, the bar has almost finished
Im mortified ashamed and anguished
but what can compare to the heady feeling
that send the taste buds reeling
no wine no drink can give that satisfaction
that feeling of quiet elation
that chocolate does provide
other things aside
forget that they go straight to the hips
it brings a smile to the lips
and lights up the eyes of the reciever
soothes, placates, and doesnt aggrieve her
enjoy everything while you can
as for me Ill always be a chocolate fan!
