Ode to Chocolate

Your silken skin
so cool and smooth
melting on my tongue
this moment I’ll cherish
lavishing in the richness
of your marrow
forever bonding me to you

You soothe my every woe
more than you know

You’re a delicacy To my soul
Oh, chocolate


This was written for a poetry challenge to write a poem about chocolate, and it won First Place.
