It’s a Dark Chocolate Life

Living a bittersweet life on semi-sweet dreams

Counting the cost in bites, chomps and nibbles

Wondering if I will rise to the occasion

Or remove myself from the heat before I’m ready

Am I melting into something beautiful

Or am I just an add on sooner underappreciated

Can I be appreciated in my purity

Or will I always be morphed into what you will find more palatable

I walk the line of pleasure and pain

Breathing ever so lightly

Afraid to tip the scales into sourness

Must I be artificial to get your attention

When you finally decide you’ve had your fill of all the fluff

You’ll have missed my refined substance
