A Poem: Bittersweetness

Some people like the taste of
Bittersweet chocolate and
Some give it just a try coz
The problem is that
Sweet taste disappears so fast & then
Bitter hits the tongue to
Give the sensation of darkness but
You feel like eating some
More bittersweet chocolate to
Get the sweetness back again before
The bitter hits you once more but
This time the difference is that
The bitterness lasts longer so
Either you’ll get addicted to the taste or
It would be hard to enjoy with the slow pace
I’m that bittersweet chocolate entering in your deep space so
Slide me in and
Bite me into small pieces to
Get that raw taste or
Use your soft hands to
Unwrap the silver foil and
Break me into pieces to
Put me in your lukewarm bowl where
You stir & melt me gently where
We melt & freeze slowly to
Make new shape & forms but
If you can’t decide that
You would like the taste coz
It’s difficult for you to
Try something less sweet then
Simply wrap me back and
Hide me somewhere in your space coz
You aren’t ready to handle
The real & raw flavours of
Pure joy & sweet pain well
Perhaps another time but
You must always remember that
You are holding just a portion of this bar and
Not sitting in some darkened space and
Holding the bars of a cage coz
One thing about me will never change that
I’ll always remain the bittersweet chocolate with
A slightly edgy taste that
Depends on the chemistry between
You & me and
How I was actually made

  1. I bring the salt to the bitter sweetness that you emit…..{another day, hugs} You can always change the texture [appearance] but we will always hold the same cells no matter the form/structure. On the ironic note….I had been wanting to make melted chocolate to drizzle over popcorn….I hadn’t any chocolate …not even my bittersweet baking chocolate…I could have used a piece of you 🙂

    Hope you are well. I smile for this week brings much stress but there isn’t anything I can do about it but just be myself like I’ve always been. You have touched me deeply [some would think creepy] I take it w/respect and dignity…being able to love w/out identity…is not an infliction it’s how we were suppose to witness in this existence….not a rarity.

    Much Love Flowic…..bittersweet is one of balance…melted or not…..how about saltysweet…less tart??? 😉

    1. Do bring the salt…it will only make it taste better. DK is known for saltysweets as well. More than welcome to use a piece of me 😃

      I don’t think anymore what others think
      …..have done that a lot in my life…it doesn’t matter i don’t care but it’s not my problem if people think “creepy”.

      Everything happens for a reason….”Meeting” you wasn’t a coincidence….I think it was meant to be….I feel a special connection with you….it doesn’t require a face…a body…a voice….a fragrance…it’s all about the energy….energies can be felt & sensed…distance isn’t a constraint….you’ve touched me deeply as well & I respect you….who you really are….It’s like I can see the real you which others can’t….can’t explain though how

      I really hope that you will be fine & you’ll find peace within you…..visualize it….feel your heart beat…but I also have an idea what’s going on with you…what you are going through….where you don’t have much influence….but live to love you can for sure..

      Hugs & much love,

      1. Sweet has never been my fancy….makes my face pucker just as if it were tart. LOL….. Salty has been my weakness to indulge in from time to time. I’ve seen the layers and will still stick w/salt…LOL
