Lust

A craving. A guttural need to satisfy. A flutter...of anticipation. A deep inhalation.

Heart beat quickens and pulse complies.

So close. So close. So cloooooooooooose.
I'm almost there.

I reach into the dark, hidden corner of the kitchen cupboard. Stealthy, I find the bag. I tear off the wrapper. Hello small, dark and handsome. How YOU doin'? I place the dark chocolate on my tongue. Oh it's so good. I close my eyes and savor but then devour. I silently give thanks that my world is one that includes large doses of dark chocolate.

I'm. Submerged. In. Chocolate. Ecstasy.

(Part of Momalom's FiveforTen. Today's topic is LUST...Blush. Sigh.)

I have a similar obsession with ice cream. Any day or any time of the week.

You described food lust so well.

As I read this I'm submerged in mocha ecstasy. So I get it, really get it :-).

The lust for chocolate is one I know very well. I almost posted something very similar about some chocolate brownies.

Now if that isn't lust, I don't know what is! lol. Stopping by from momalom. :)

What is it about women & chocolate? I have similar obsession except it doesn't stop there. It includes ice cream, meat and fries. Sigh...

I *may* have a secret stash of chocolate. I'd tell you where it is, but then I'd have to kill you.. ;)

Oh, yes! Chocolate in large quantities, how I lust for that, too. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

I'm a new follower from Theta Mom, and I somehow missed you on the Five for Ten. Jeez, there were just so many blogs! I love this, and your memory post. Music always brings back the good, bad, and in-between.

Chocolate seems to be the lust of choice for many a blogger I know. I wish I could say I have a similar obsession, or affair, but I can't put a finger on what it is that I crave...food-wise, anyhow. I think I'm sadly more of a salt girl. Chips and Dip anyone?
