A sonnet
"Food of Love" by brenda bickers
Deep in the night the flame of hunger bites,
while in my mind I yearn for sweet delights;
as chocolate fountains drip with heart's desire,
a sparkling champagne quenches burning fire.

On the vine the fruits of true love grow,
pure juices that will stem the passion's flow.
Devouring swiftly all that one can take,
my lips caress the cherry on the cake.

Yet sadly, all is not quite what it seems,
reality defies fixation's dreams;
and once again I find my cupboard bare,
for what I crave was never really there.

Alas, expectant hopes are not for me--
a fish paste sandwich and a cup of tea.


Author Notes

Fish paste = A smooth spreadable past made from either crab or tuna fish.
