Box of Chocolates
Because he was a little drunk.
Or maybe it was because he
X-rayed my chest before declaring his love?
On our one-year anniversary,
Flowers were dropped off at my door which
Could've come from a cemetery.
However much he meant to impress and charm, it
Occurred to my brain, posthumously,
Conversations we'd had had never
Opened us voluminously –
Leading me to question the universe why
A voracious sweets lover like me
Thought there was a chance that I would be
Showered with lots of candy.
I know, I know. I didn't follow the instructions.
Inspiration struck around midnight, and the instructions for this challenge
got mangled in my memory. So, I'm disqualified. But it was fun to write anyway,
even though it's about the universal subject of not getting what you want. :)
