Dear Chocolate,

Henry Hanson and Ariana Haze


Everything about you entices me.
Antioxidants bring me glee.
But people said you were bad for me.
They lied about you but you’ve returned.
I couldn’t be happier you’re in my life.
I reach for you when I’m faced with strife.
It eases the pain to be in your presence.
I like you dark, even light – but why should you turn a milky white?
The possibilities endless, as the taste mingle on my palette.
It makes me feel so warm and well.
