Chocolate Fantasy

For NaPoWriMo prompt #4: Day 4

Standing In The Gap

Chocolate Fantasy

In shadowy gap of another space,
might dare to wear face
of pulsating lover:
softly smiling with eager
hunger, beckoning.

But clearer reckoning and time
have eroded that tilting concept,
wilting smooth skin to softer
wrinkles, sometimes sprinkled
with chocolate.

Elizabeth Crawford  4/4/14

Notes: There are those times, especially during April, when one needs to laugh,
especially at ones self.

  1. Aye, and those times also require chocolate!

    Thanks Viv. The older I get the more I find that I require chocolate, lol.



  2. I am smiling at those closing lines!

    So glad to hear that Sherry, I was aiming at a bit of a cackle…grin.

    Hi Elizabeth, I could use some chocolate right about now. Chocolate sounds better than some lover boy to me. nice lighted write. I was just getting round to read and when I was over at Misky’s place, I heard a noise, an odd one. I got up to look and there in my yard was half of my nearly ten foot tall cactus laying in my yard. An absolute mess. I have cleaned up some, but there are parts that are much too tough for me and my machete to penetrate. So much for a nice quiet evening, huh!

    Sorry to hear about your cactus, Pamela, as well as your ‘nice quiet evening.’ Unexpected things happen all too often. Of course, if they didn’t our lives would be rather dull and boring. Glad you enjoyed the poem, it was fun to write, and a bit different from my usual bent.



  4. Chocolate makes everything better. 🙂

    Obviously, I agree. Thanks Brenda,
