The Sweetest Thing

And it was sweet
The fullness there
Ever changing sweetness
The one you run around the block for
Or the one you sneak at night
Under the canopy of blackness
Sure enough to never make a sound
But you hold it tight
The sweetness that beckons favors
The secret sweet that glistens gold
Only long enough to be lusted after
The sweetest thing you’ve ever known.
But now that sweet thing is gone
If only it lasted longer than a five minute song.
