Isn't it barbaric,
the things we've done and said?
And the way we tuck them neatly,
like cattle,
to the backs of our heads?
Isn't it barbaric,
the way I treat myself?
As though I am a stranger,
or a doll left on a shelf.
Isn't it barbaric,
the way you look at me?
So sweetly,
like you'd hold me,
for all eternity.
And isn't it barbaric,
the way that death takes life?
As though it had meant nothing,
even wrought with strife.

A treat for every eye
a potion for every cup
a room for everyone.
One day the sun
will drop into a lap on earth.
It looked red, red
the first day it shone
is still the same red rose!
Love is sweet,
Like a dairy treat,
If so,
Does love expire?
Work in prog.. I just thought of this and was like.. NANI?!
First, let me ask myself.
What is in you that others don't have?
Honestly, I don't know.
Everytime others borrow something from me,
I have second thoughts.
When it comes to you, I give it immediately.
When someone messages me late at night and I feel sleepy,
I don't mind them.
But when I saw your name popped,
I immediately replied, fighting my heavy eyes.
When someone asks for food,
I'm having second thoughts too,
When it comes to you,
I don't care if there is still something left for me.
I laugh at your jokes even if they aren't funny.
I treat you differently.
Now, let me ask you.
What is in her that I don't have?
My bunny this is for youuuuuu.

A musical treat,
One billion neurons  play ball;
Ecstasy defined!

haunted ghosts roam around
in the dark of the night
you might get spooked if you see one in front of your eyes
don’t be scared for halloween only comes but once a night
the dead come alive
giving you chills down your spine
although, if caught by a witch
i suggest you run
she’ll put a spell on you just for fun

Love is like a box of Chocolates
they come in different shapes and sizes
sometimes bitter but often sweet
In this world not everyone gets a treat.
I'm hungry XD

Rich and warmingly sweet dough
spiced with cinnamon
wisps of nutmeg, buttery
rolls baked gold-and-brown
Icing sugar made
now drizzle
Twenty-fourth Epulaeryu! ^-^
My sweet tooth returns with a vengeance! ;)
Another classic that never lets me down!

Speak Slowly Aug 2018
Slowly saving
patiently waiting
email received transaction confirmed
item conceived, time contracted
a gift for one, many or all
a package surely to befall
a package arrives as the sun rises
it finally comes, joy
it fills us as we tear it apart "oh boy!"
help yourself, its ok to treat yourself
again save and order
await the presents that cross borders
happiness from innocent pleasures
isn't that a great treasure

Milk-white, shredded filo dough
spun gossamer-thin
Wrapped nest for pistachio,
almonds, cinnamon
White baked gentle gold
Hot honey
Twenty-first Epulaeryu!
This is a Greek treat I had, it reminds me of Baklava, to be honest, but it's very delicious! ^-^
I'm gonna take these real slow now, headache's playing up...again >.<
