Chocolate fever at night | Poetry by Kavya Gupta

It’s dark outside,

there’s no light in sight,

Mom’s sleeping,

Dad’s snoring,

Yes, this is the perfect time.

I get up and reach out to the kitchen door,

I make sure I don’t make noise on the floor,

I am ready to make a final blow,

there’s no time to wait anymore.

And there I saw the chocolate cake;

Icy, tempting,

A delicious bake,

I dug into it with my silver fork,

before my parents wake.

And that’s when I felt it on my tongue,

Creamier than ever; my heart then sung,

I wanted the clock to wait then and there,

To feel the moment in the chocolaty air.

    # Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
    * By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time) #
