Was thinking this morning just what the taste of love is
Like the first time you taste something new unexpected.
This is something new from a new source.
It’s sweeter than honey.
It’s salty with happiness.
Its spiciness is the zest of life.
There is heat of peppers for sensuality.
There is coolness of ice cream for your desire.
There is tartness of lemon to brighten your mind.
There is the wetness of a peach to smooth your way.
There is just a hint of the unknown.
The taste of coffee rich, dark, and strong.
To keep your mind and body aroused.
There are so many flavors.
Will you like it, want more, and may I have more?
Not what your mother and dad gave you.
It’s what your love has given to me.
