a burst
of pure caramel,
sweet goodness
my throat
pure ecstasy,
my love affair
with you.


Inspiration- Imaginary Gardens- Out of Standard- Isadora Gruye wants us to write about guilty pleasures

Loved your poem - I completely appreciate this ... if you'll indulge me:

"Once I Had A Secret Love"

She unwraps me
and imagines a new lover

my cool dark hard
bittersweet soul
meant to tease and savor

she breathes in
my heady scent
and remembers
her first time
and she is
transported again
and again and again
to my narcotic netherworld

seeing no one around
she teases me
gliding me over
her pink pillow lips
my soft edges tickling her
and eliciting
a conspiratorial smile
I bask in her worship
and glow in her love
her fingertips are warm
and I begin softly melting
from the desire
coursing through her

she places me
on her tongue
so warm and slippery
and I brace myself
for the slow steady force
of her bite

the pressure is divine
and with one snap
I am broken
and swimming ecstatically
in her mouth

I giggle helplessly
as she rolls me
left then right
then presses me up
against her palate

and I am singing to her
an unrestrained Yes

she gently tosses her head back
and I begin that
long lovely descent down
her waiting
alabaster throat

and she feels me
rushing and tingling
through her whole being

with another bite
I happily and
shamelessly surrender
crying breathlessly

yes! take me!
consume me!
give me my reason!

and suddenly
my chocolate wrapper lies empty
and discarded

but I am

for I have been united
with my beloved.

Herotomost said...

Wow...people are really guilty about the sweets today!!!! lol. All I have to say is yum.

Kerry O'Connor said...

Never has eating candy sounded so sexy!

Susan said...

I think all of this food talk is a way to avoid the really guilty pleasures that we still cannot discuss.

Marian said...

totally agree with Susan here, but still, yum yum.

Unknown said...

This brings to mind the Milky Way candy bar with the all-caramel filling! Double yum!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I love your poem - and Buddah's, too! Now I'll be thinking of how much the Mars bar is enjoying it, when I eat one. Hee hee.

Amrit Sinha said...

I wish I could taste one now !!!

LLM Calling said...

Unknown said...

As others have already responded--yum!

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating!

hedgewitch said...

When it comes to chocolate(or caramel, provided it has chocolate attached to it somewhere) I have no guilt any more--the other, I never had guilt. ;_)

Maude Lynn said...

Oh, yes!

Peggy said...

I hope someone brings a large plate of caramels to your Thanksgiving feast! Enjoy!

Hannah said...

Caramel is SO good!!! I agree, Luarie, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!

Susie Clevenger said...

Yummy....I wouldn't have much guilt with this one..well, that is until I stepped on the

Kay L. Davies said...

A secret love, a secret lover, very suggestive secret passion here, Laurie! Well done.

Helen said...

Be still my heart! You chose to write about the candy, syrup, ice cream, pie, cake, etc. I simply cannot resist! Give me caramel or give me (caramel) death!

Jinksy said...

What a fine line is drawn between a secret love of sweets, and a secret lover! Perhaps we all unconsciously identify one with the other... But are all too guilty to admit it. :)

Mary said...

Yum! I can TASTE this poem.

Lolamouse said...

They say that chocolate and other sweets release endorphins. Reading your poem (and Mosk's!), I'd have to agree!
