Love and Such, Ltd.

20 Nov

Pluck a small piece of heart,

Sweeten intensely.

Sprinkle with candied words,

Embrace warmly.

And toast by the fireside

To crystallize hope.


When life beckons,

Slip away in a blipbeat;

But carry dark gloves

To dispose off the charred remains

When you turn the corner

And remember to hasten back.

    Incredibly moving – and so umm.. physcially tangible. I can almost smell the decked up hope and hear the crunch of discarded dreams under stomping feet.

    Felt like melted chocolate coating my tongue…utterly yummy and soooooo sensuous.

    Nino’s Mum: Like nutties.

    M4: You think so? It tasted pretty bitter when it spilled out. 🙂

    Alas and alack, my darling OJ
    Was that heart hastily given away?
    That crystallized hope
    May yet help it elope
    Before the scenario (and hair) turn gray!

    Bitter, yes, of course. But the reader’s pleasure, in this case mine, was akin to enjoying a good chocolate bar!

    Aunty G: I’d have to check
    with the dark heart-speck
    for the one to pine
    wasn’t actually mine
    with a noose around its neck.

    M4: 🙂 That’s why the category.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
