Sugar

Sugar

 

I spilt some sugar today in my sink

It fell like brown, crystalline snow

As my heart and emotions have fallen

Since I’ve been here in this perplexing and beautiful space

That we call a lifetime

And as I watched the particles dissolve within droplets of water

I thought

That’s exactly how it should be

Sugar sweetening the water of life

And we make mistakes

And stir things up as we move through our lives

We add our individual flavour

But that doesn’t mean we have the recipe right

It just means that we’re doing our thing

And casting sweetness about

Some will find it just right

Some will want to add a little more

And others will choose to abstain from sugary emotions entirely

And that’s ok

Because it's through sweetness and an acquired taste

That we find our truth...

To receive love, you have to give it...

Ah, Douglas, this is a nice piece of poetry. It offers some peaceful reading, to me. The opening of the poem I loved the most. It has a great start. Then it starts some narrative part, which I don't really like it, in general, but it fits ok in your poem. :) That is something that I am trying to improve in my own poetry. But yes, you did it, just fine.

I am happy to read your poetry again :).
