I wasted my wish on chocolate
Wrapped in absurd sunsets
Tasted bitter love on my tongue
My kiss comes in black cocoa
I prefer the shiver of sweetness tenderness leaves behind.
You cast your wish
Under starlit canopy, let it
Carry you to the aqua depths of the ocean
Where starfish touch your pearling ankles and
Bears walk among the coral.
