Ashen Sweet Taste

I was eating a Terry’s Chocolate Orange that I got for Christmas, then I started to think of my Grandma, she used to be the one that got the chocolate oranges, and the taste in my mouth just turned ashen.


The sweet taste

Turns to ash

As I think

Of twenty years

Of memories past

And wish that

I could have

Them all back

And stop time

As it was

Those years ago

With ev’ryone back

And the happiness

And the innocence

That childhood holds

Just fanciful thought

I have aged

The innocence gone

As have they

Here I am

The sweet taste

Turned to ash


Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
