Flavors of Love

Does love have a flavor, do I taste its soft sweetness 
taste its full bitterness

Do I drink it with soda, do I drink it with ice 
drink it straight up

Do I taste every flavor, allow it to linger

Is it full
Is it shallow
Is it empty

Do I allow it to wander, or allow it to cling

capture its shyness
yield to its form
hold fast its wishes

~It burns going down~
It sets reason to fire
It takes every breath
It shapes every edge

It hoards all time
It manages all moments
It captures the seconds
It wastes every minute

It hollows my days
It punctures my eyes
It blinds me with flavors
It quenches my thirst
