Chocolate Hangover

Tantalizing flavor, traversing
the smooth surface of my tongue
stimulating taste buds, undulating
undertones of teasing tingle
echoing more, more, more

Subsequent fuzzy-headed fog so god-awful
yet still I reach for another bite
believing this time maybe
the momentary rush of sweetness
will outweigh the prolonged sickening stupor

Doing my best to delay indulgence's
intrusion upon my sensibility
I wait for the poisonous cloud's dissipation
affording a temporary reprieve
from desire's lascivious lair

until the next inevitable enticement
