tingling your tongue.
Divine relief is dulcified
by the flavorful release.
A sigh, no, a smile,
coated with honey
or sweet, sticky caramel
for a dulcet mask .
each bite is saccharine
so as to rest heavy on the stomach.
The aftertaste so dry and bitter
that the rancid words fill you whole,
sickening the body and trapped.
Honesty is ambrosia
no mere mortal can swallow.
