A life by chocolate entails finding sweetness in the light and dark. Moreso, it's about addiction to cocoa. An insatiable sweet-tooth doesn't hurt. Well, not until the yucky tartar buildup and stuff. To the point, I strive to make you laugh like never before, cry in a good way, and hoard all the fair trade chocolate I haven't yet found. Thanks for sampling Life by Chocolate. I hope you keep coming back for more.
And I Wrote This Book.

Something: Hold Hope
I hope you're doing well and taking good care of yourselves.
It's been a while since I wrote a non-erotic poem. Instead of starting from scratch, though, I revised an oldie. Times are tough, so it's an attempt to inspire.
Keep a smile and a stash of chocolate.
Sometimes we reach for something
but it's something we can't see
When a moment feels like hours
and we struggle to just be.
Despair is all consuming and
the future beckons fear.
We listen with intention
unsure what we yearn to hear.
Sometimes we pray for something
though we lack religious creed,
still staking faith in one thing
to provide all that we need.
Yet in this desperate stretch At times We sense a subtle shift.
