deep fried mars


“and you 
— not the you
from now — the you
from when you were
only a vague
vision through
my third
optic

the you
who would
be the only being
to accept me for me
—  broken brain
faults and all  
one who regardless 

— no matter how insane
would stand by my side

that was the night
i ordered the deep-fried
mars bar — with my first
delectable bite i knew
i had to scribe 
you a letter

— you know me
how much i live
to write — i\’d finally
sorted the words
i\’d sought after
that delirious
first bite  

i couldn\’t believe
anything would taste
so ridiculously
yummy

finally — i was able
to permit  
my ink to flow 
upon an ivory 
handmade 
parchment
you\’ll probably
never read

to my dearest
future husband…
i had no idea
of who you were
but wanted to reach out
just the same
yes — i do realize 
it sounds — completely insane
to address this man 
who will be such a large
part of my future
but not part 
of my present 

nevertheless
my heart
ached for you
not a superficial yearn
but one that gained
in strength from

my core

and yes — i also know 
it\’s quite the heavy thought 
to be paired with a deep 
fried mars bar 
and half litre of blush 
wine that was ordered 
not only for whimsy
but love 
of chocolate
which filled 
the gaps
while

i
waited
for
you
to
finally
enter
my

l
