You were so sweet
I knew better than to try to consume you all at once
If i over indulge then my stomach would ache
So i told myself "maybe just a taste"
But you weren't composed of artificial flavors
Your flavors were real, your flavors were rare
You fed me and I ate
Moderation turned into day to day
Unlike the previous you never left me malnourished
You provided so much nutrients
And when I was parched you were hydration
On the tip of my tongue the remedy for desolation
You spoke to me, sang to me like a choir
How were you left for me?
Maybe your taste is acquired
Do others find you tart, or sour
Were you bitter?
Or were you too much?
Did they OD, get the jitters?
Am I draining the life out of you?
Because now I taste sweet
If you're real then I'm a duplicate
Is the artificial one me?
Or are you just here to show me the potential I could reach
When you provided your nutrients did you nurture a seed?
I had the roots, but now I'm sprouting an apple tree
Such a lovely gift. You are so sweet
To help me blossom
An apple tree
