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.

  2. Another great piece Jaya! I love the imagery it conjures up and takes on different meanings. I don’t know why, but I can imagine this being about a summer romance/holiday fling.

    thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Wonderfully vivid, and I feel it fits the theme of absurdity perfectly! There’s so much to unpack in the narrator’s relationship and the journey they are transported through, this is brilliant

  4. Oh about me I suppose I have wasted too many wishes in chocolate.
    On the acqua depth of the ocean you made me come in mind an image of something like a water baggy dress, can’t explain why.
    Bears walking among the coral would do less damages than we “humans” do.
