Sweeter Than

You are the sweetest
not just a bit,
better than I ever
tasted before,

You are the darkest
my bittersweet girl
just right for baking
just right for me,

Your scent fills my room
so wonderfully warm
too hot to touch
Ouch! too easy to be burned

If you were a cookie
a cake, or a pie
how wonderful it would be
tasting my way

Through your sweetness…
