Sweet As

Prompt:  Rewrite one of your existing poems.

From the midst of a puddle of
vocabularic vomit,
I plucked the word that defined
the intangible,
the irresistible...

charisma

...and wondered
if I was the only one
who knew the truth -

that beneath the shiny foil
and the rich chocolate,
you're just a marshmallow.

But I do love chocolate.

Everybody loves chocolate.


This poem is a rewrite of Opposites Attract.
