Flavorful Words

The flavorful words

The ones that leave my heart beaming

The ones that taste like sun-kissed honeydew on a spring afternoon

Those that I long for

When my fingers go numb

After-effects of a cold heartbreak

Or simply a hibernation of inhibitions


The flavorful words

The ones that are surrounded

By ooh and aahs

That calm the heart like a lavender breeze

Or like psitherism, or the awakened sea

They are far less rare to me

When she touches the small of my back so tenderly


The flavorful words

Sometimes absurd

Sweet as apple curd

Not ridiculous, I’m assured

And like thick, sweet caramel, must be stirred

With the arms of strong men paired with a childish candor


My Love has brought me flavorful words

And so I give back to you, childish and unsure
