Cookie Monster

Chocolate Chip Cookie


 Such a mess

Melted chocolate smeared across my fingertips

The remnant of a fierce battle


I fought valiantly

But forces of a dark furnace lured me

Hot flames promised sweet death


Over so quickly

It saw a chink in my defenses

One whiff was all it took


Attacked by two

I chewed my pride and swallowed defeat

Sweetness chased with bitter guilt


My foe left its mark

I clean up the gore and lick at my wounds

There’s still the war
