I gravitate towards attractive packaging
You called out to me
Clean and simple, but complex
-much to the imagination
I read you for the details
Are you true to the claims
Can this sustain me?
-a short fix to satisfy a craving
I open you and little comes forth
Weighted by accumulated ingredients
What has been taken by all those who wanted you before?
I don’t have a taste for that
Hold it back.
I want to pull you apart
I end up spilling things out
-here’s your taste of everything
Make a mess of a savoring state
Can I save you, how do I preserve this?
I want to feel like I have earned it
As if I don’t deserve you now, I try to ration you out
Small bites at a time
-decadence for my mouth and my mind
I cannot handle you shelved or my cravings
I cannot delay you
I settle for eating you.
