Sweet or Sour ?


The bitter truth of life

It was the sweetest dish!

As it described itself.

I tasted it’s outside,

and was overwhelmed !

And I had the wish,

that me blind and deaf,

the desire hard to subside,

beats of my heart withheld.

Then I crunched it eagerly

with hopes of divine peace.

But it was utterly bitter,

Pungent, distasteful, sour.

I ran in horror unmannerly,

life felt to cease.

Me like glass to shatter,

I had lost all strength and power.
