A love affair with chocolate

If you were listening to the show earlier today, you’ll have heard guest Gilly Walker and the Girls Around Town sharing a Chocolate Moment with a difference…

In case you missed it – or if you’d like to enjoy it again – here’s Gilly’s sonnet; for a reminder of the story behind it, visit Gilly’s website here

Chocolate – a love story

We’ve had a life-long love affair, we two.

Though times I’ve tried to leave you and be free

It never lasts and I return to you –

I can never have enough of you, you see.

You’ve been my solace in a hostile world,

You’ve been my sweetness, oh, and my delight.

You’re there for me, your wrapper comes unfurled

At any time of day, or even night.

But I must give you up, I know I must,

Though it leaves a space that I can never fill.

I think of you and I am filled with lust

And seeing your rich brown body’s quite a thrill.

But here’s the thing: I’m getting rather fat, and clothing-wise things are a little tight.

I’ll give you up, I swear I will, I must.  But even so, not without a fight.
