Gateaux

 

“Aww, you’re so cute!!!”

I don’t want to be cute! I don’t want to be an aww!

Sure, it’s better than an insipid meh,

Preferable to a repulsive urgh,

But is an aww really something, that you deeply crave or yearn for?

Is it something that you need, that you just can’t be without

Does it ignite a raging fire, that only having me can douse?

No! I want to be an ooh, I want to be an mmm

 

Let’s say I were a cake…

 

I don’t want to be that cute little cupcake,

That you mindlessly eat, while on coffee break

It’s pleasant, sure, but it will never make your knees tremble or quake

I want to be that rich, sensual, double chocolate gateaux

That transcends all experience, takes you to new plains of pleasure, and undiscovered plateaus.

I want to make you salivate, to lick your lips at first sight,

When you look upon me, your eyes to widen with delight.

To ignite in you, a raging fire,

A burning, uncontrollable, visceral desire.

So that as you put me to your lips, and open to receive me,

An anticipation graps you so intense, you beg, from this, please free me

And that I do, once I’m inside,

your exhilaration, you cannot hide

You contort, throw your head back, and bite your quivering lip,

As down your throat, I slowly slip

With each spoon, I make you swoon,

Inducing an inexplicable, all over tingle,

As with your taste buds I tangle, intertwine and mingle

In your stomach an awakening,

In your chest a palpitating

I’d make you gasp and exclaim,

Feel sensations so intense, you simply can’t explain

A pleasure so extreme, you almost cannot bear,

It’s bordering on pain, yet you beg me, take me there

I’d make you cry out to a deity,

With just one mouthful,

let alone a plate of me…

 

So there you have it, that’s how I feel

Please don’t see me as a cupcake,

Don’t see me as an aww,

I want to be to you, an mmm or ooh!

Your double chocolate gateaux boo!
