I lost my appetite  

your words are now
flat  
empty
devoid of flavor  
no salt to burn the wounds  
I hide so carefully  
no spices to inflame my senses  
and set fire to my soul  
no moisture  
to make me thirst
for quenching  
but  
oh  
oh what they used to be…  
your alphabet usage  
was a culinary delight  
each letter round and plump,  
each word tasty, delectable  
seasoned with just enough
adjectives,  
peppered with perfect punctuation  
your verbiage moist and juicy  
I couldn't wait to eat  
I couldn't get my fill…  
what happened?  
I don't understand
this lack of wanting.  
I am still me
and you are still wonderful
but now you create
for someone I could never be
and I am left with the  
crumbs of yesterday's desserts  
I numbly nibble  
failing to find my familiar fix  
the staleness saddens my soul  
its not the same  
and I
I seem to have lost  
my appetite

Well, your words have certainly not lost any flavor. This poem is a culinary delight....and roasted to perfection.

How wonderfully someone can season our lives and make every day delicious... and how dry as dust the taste of mornings without them. *S* This is great, Corazon!
