    Food for Thought


    A sugar that’s so sweet
    Awakening my Saliva
    Because I Hunger for you
    No, NO wrong choice of words
    I’m famished
    I need you so badly
    You only know an iota of what I crave
    Wanting you has never been enough
    I wanna devour you slowly
    One aspect of you at a time
    I’ve tasted you one
    Or maybe twice
    Alright, three times
    And that’s all I am willing to admit
    B-cuz I can’t be lackadaisical in your flavor
    You come in many assortments
    Tickling my taste buds
    You make me so greedy
    I’ve been feeding off of your mind
    For so long That you’ve
    Imprinted on me
    I’ve been drinking your wisdom
    Like it’s my daily devotion, I wouldn’t spill a drop
    I’ve chewed up your every desire
    So thoroughly
    So that it can be digested in my system
    I wouldn’t want to regurgitate
    All the things that make you happy
    You’ve spoon fed me the knowledge of “you”
    Each spoonful reminding me of your long lasting beauty
    You’ve taught me how to prepare you
    And with that recipe
    You’ll never find me playin’ with my food

    Oh my goodness....

    Words truly escape me Poet
    At the outset this piece seems like pure erotica (hey, nothin' wrong wit dat !)
    but then you realize that it's much deeper, metaphorical,
    and symbolic... sheer genius !


    Versatile, Thank you for sharing your work with us and welcome home...


    Much
    Peace & Love
