Reminder of your Losses
Some times , things, people,
Leaving you baffled
Like a rainbow and glitter wrapper,
On a bar of dark chocolate.
That sat in the shop window,
That made you crave,
Save up for it.
And when you finally held it;
That bar of candy, and the receipt.
The wrapper, didnt feel oh so fine anymore,
You had to admit, the receipt paper felt softer,
And the glitter from the wrapper hurt your eye
You expecyed milky sweet goodness underneath,
Not the dark bitter notes that ruined your fantasy;
Bittersweet notes, better suited to another palate.
Dissapointed, you left it on the park bench, and walked away;
The crumpled receipt in your pocket,
A reminder of your losses.
