Toffee (A Shadorma)

For the romantic poet Richard over at who took up the challenge of writing a piece on the word Toffee.

Please check out his site, if you aren’t already doing so.

Below is my submission.


I could feel

Sweet mouth on my skin

He nibbled

I breathed in

Whispers for more, he explored

Lips met, toffee sweet
