A Teaspoon of Taste

A teaspoon of glorious taste
that most of us long for.
We try to do with other things like
tasting acceptance
tasting fun
tasting laughter
tasting joy
and they were all very good.

But there is another taste
that gives us all those great flavors
into one small taste.
A taste so packed with flavor
it seems to last eternity.
We don't want to let it go
and if it leaves,
we mourn, and hurt ourselves
by trying with all our might to hold the taste
but it has gone.

It was so sweet
you didn't want to let it go.
You want to taste it again.
No doubt you will

But don't take a great big bowl
and gulp it down.
Too much of a good thing,
and it may tear you apart if it leaves
because you have made it
too much a part of yourself
and your heart.

Don't be afraid to let it go.

Very good! I've decided that I'm going to read and comment on all of your poems that I haven't already and I thought I'd start out on your first. This is a very creative idea! You know how me and the darkness get along, but I still really enjoyed this. The message isn't completely blunt, which I like and I like hope to see more soon. You should capitalize the start of each line, and if you read it over you'll find a few grammar errors. They're the little ones. :) This is a cute poem, mixed with a few other emotions. Keep writing!

May the divine darkness be with you,
Leigh of the Commenting Crusaders

This is a truly wonderful piece. I'm not surprised that it came from someone young... though it seems sad that you have already tasted this bliss and have already lost it. Either that or you are just incredibly observant. Either way, my hat's off to you! Bravo! Looking forward to seeing more. ^_^

This is absolutely beautiful, "unto the mouth of babes...." and so Jesus' quote goes. Such wisdom from the mouth of a child! Addictions can be damaging and as the old cliche goes, "Too much of anything is no good for you." Adam tasted the apple and the rest is history! This poem is compelling, for its message is clear, its imagery is vivid and it flows very freely. Great job, Euna! Considering your age, the message and the quality of your work, I must give you a five!
