NaPoWriMo : Day 27 – For The Love Of Chocolate

National Poetry Writing Challenge Day 27 is to write a poem that explores the sense of taste. This could be a poem on food, wine or even the oddly metallic sensation of snowflake on your tongue.

Being a total foodie, this topic shouldn’t be difficult but it is. Well, I’m finding it difficult to choose. From a long list of foods, there were finally two on the top slot- chocolate and grandma’s food. While there’s absolutely nothing to beat grandma’s cooking, not writing about chocolate seems like betrayal to the one thing in my life that’s been a part of every laughter and every tear.

So here’s to chocolate and all chocolate lovers!

 

When I am happy,

When I am sad,

When I am hungry,

Or just want something bad,

A bar of chocolate is just what I need.

 

Just some silence and me on my own,

A bar of chocolate, much better than wine,

Makes me happier for reasons unknown,

Loved and cared for , leaves me feeling fine.

Life’s simple pleasure, only one who loves, it’s worth, he knows.

 

Out comes the wrapper and I take my first bite,

A world, dewy and mushy, I am transported,

As in my mouth it melts, my mind is dreamy, my heart is light,

I close my eyes, let the magic work, so true, that, what’s purported,

Every bite I take, it says to me, ” Savor the moment, this moment yours”.

 

Now, some more of this heavenly creation,

Not too sweet, not too milky, not too nutty,

My spirits rejoice, a sense of elation,

Perfect in every way, soft, chocolatey and a wee bit crunchy,

Now it’s done and it’s worked it’s wonder yet again.
