Chocolate Prick

Leaning in his breath was my chocolate
I would eat if he would not leave me as a little crumb
A slice of dessert with lingering
His prick would taste royal
I had fancied myself to be his Queen

Simple Simon says pull down your heart and show your true wares
I fumbled with the felt tips
Ink ran all over the words that were to speak

A cup of tea
Darling me with Earl Grey
I will be the Duchess of a fine spread for one

Oh he and his finery deliciousness
Sour me that sweet tooth
Lemons for my tea please!

Pure and utter nonsense so Simple Simon Says..


arcadia tempest, chocolate, nonsense, earl, lemons, sour, queen, royal, simple, silly

Feelings and words fall on to the page
Sometimes they bite back
Sometimes they tug on our sleeve
Sometimes they have a cheeky grin
They stay once a page has found them
Words are faithful to us even in the dark
