        CHOCOLATE OF DESTITUTE

I was a baby.

A dead toy for poverty

Chocolate was a luxury

One meal a day, I was in heaven

 

Sweet chocolate a dream

Never watered my mouth

As I hadn’t any taste to remember

My tongue was calm.

 

Only memories of tastes

Make your mouth water

It was only yesterday

My mouth began to water

 

I ate a morsel of brown

Chocolate that fell down

From the little hands

As little as mine

 

I tasted it, longed for more

For days on end

All that was brown watered my mouth.

Always jealous of those little hands

 

As water filled my mouth

Despair filled my eyes

A brown colored despair

Embellished with cherry, in pantries

Laughed at me and my destitute

This was awesome, you have shown a brilliant choice of words here.
"A brown colored despair
Embellished with cherry, in pantries" - Very strong couplet.
Great work :)

Poem is very good. The contentment of less can be felt with the feeling of disappointment. A powerful poem. Made my mind think about the meaning in your words. A outstanding poem.
