"Thoughts When Eating Chocolate" by Linda Engel

I like you more than I love him.

Writers are just intellectual trinkets to be sold at a spiritual yard sale.


We are writers. The creators of our days and the warriors of our nights. Be adventurous and venture on.


I use to have your attention as you devoured me. Now, I stand at a distance while you slowly fade away.


WIND CHIMES: The tingling clamor of associated objects is a comfort to us Southerns. We spend seventy-five percent of the year in stifling humidity and heat. The tingling clamor of tin or glass is a notification of a breeze blowing or a storm approaching. Either way, we welcome the brief relief from the heat.


Lost my soul to a ghost. It haunted me in the dead of the night.
I cried,"I loved you the most."
Its eyes glistened back at me with yearning.
I don't know how to get you to let you go.


I want to be one you are afraid will leave.


Author Notes
I was cleaning out my shelf of notebooks and journals when I found the one that had a bunch of single thoughts and one liners. I've wanted to post them but never did. the original title was "Thoughts to Ponder when Chocolate is not enough" but it was to long to go into the tile box. Hope you enjoy.
