Dark, rich, smooth, and creamy

decadent concoction.

Elixir of the gods.

Treasured gift for lovers.

You melt on my tongue and

feed the depths of my soul.

Truffles, ganache, brownies,

in every form you charm.

Even lighter potions

such as mousse and fondant

please my picky palate.

But, never milk. And do

not even mention white.

More cocoa, less sugar

makes you delectable.

Too chocolaty? I don’t

understand what that means?
