The Solace of Chocolate

Wan light remains
to banish shadows that prohibit calm,
nocturnal reminders of long past slumbers,
when sleep came gently --
an after-drifting into security --
energies sapped in explorations
of entwined bodies
on cooling summer sheets.

Night cries out --
demands quenching.
Wearied by labor to ignore
imperatives of the body,
chilled confections lay on the tongue,
warm to passion long denied,
dissolve, fill
caress -- a surrogate lover of the dark --
comfort the aloneness of July nights.
