Reflections on Art and Life

Chocolate

Chocolate is sweetest
Right before it enters the mouth
The silkiness of suspense
And vanilla of anticipation
Make the cheeks tingle
No one likes waiting
But maybe the denial
In the face of craving
Is more poetic
Than the prose
Of consummation

    A wonderful observation.
