The Forbidden Chocolate

By
A little girl,



bow in hair



black shiny shoes,
lifts her arms
signaling she sees,



she sees
the pretty red box.
A young girl,



popsicle stained lips





long lashes,
stamps her foot
proclaiming she wants,




she wants
the box of chocolates.
A youthful girl,



too bright lipstick




prickly legs,
screams to the world
blaring she needs,


she needs
the taste the sweets bring.
A frowning teen,



low, tight jeans



manicured fingertips,
cries to herself

realizing she tastes,




she tastes
the bitter in the sweet.
A grown woman,



pencil skirt




blinking eyes
sits alone
the taste haunting,


haunting
until she eats
the whole



box.
