I slowly tip-toe around the coffee table
making sure I don’t hit my little toe
at the table leg and scream out loud,
waking the entire Home.
I sneak towards the kitchen, eyeing the fridge.
I look around, making sure no one is
up and about at this late hour,
and I open the freezer on top.
I grab the pack and close the door
when I hear a gasp.
I turn round on my heels and seeing you
relieves my tension of being caught.
“You too?” I whisper?
You simply nod, with a calm expression.
I take two spoons out of the drawer
and beckon you forward with one.
You oblige; we slide down next to each other,
talking silently about the secrets of the universe,
while unconsciously taking turns in
digging our spoons in the large
tub of Choco Xcess.
I think this is my favourite poem that I’ve ever written so far!
This poem is inspired by the book, The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L Armentrout.
