sweetest prayer

What if my love were peppermint,
decadent sweet delight?
You’d scarf me down obsessively
no holding back in sight.
Alas, a girl of mortal flint
am I, my flavor slight,
But I can pledge fidelity
       -- and sugar every night.

  7. Love it! And though I do love peppermint, I imagine one would tire of scarfing it obsessively!

  8. sugar every night...now that's what I'm talking about.

    I used to wish I always tasted of peppermint...cool and crisp, sweet and icy.

    it's the SWEET that you are that keeps the boy coming back. ;)
