Cocoa drowning

I love you like Cocoa,

You wear me down for months only for you to be processed overseas.

I love you like Cocoa,

Deep, dark, bitter and warm…a toast here, broken back there…sweat here, hopes there…everything finds its way to you…to us…

I love you like Cocoa,

You need a sweetener to go down my throat,

So, I’ll mix you with honey,

Stir up some sweet trouble and gulp you…

I love you like Cocoa,

Dark, rich…glowing, the kind that makes the sun shimmer in remembrance of your glory.

I love you like Cocoa,

For whereas others strive to breathe under water, I drown…I let go of every fear, doubt, malice, anguish, anxiety, anger…and my hands break through the strong waves, upright…so you’ll see me and know that I’m here, not by a show of hand…but a show of hands…

I love you like Cocoa…drowning, rich, dark, strong, unforgettable.
