J - Just Desserts

Oh?

You’re sorry?

Oh, so sorry?

I don’t forgive as easily
as that. 

I require
much more than empty words
more than empty acts.

Bring me cherry pie
or chocolate petit fours
with cream.

A hot fudge sundae
all the works
my favor to redeem.

My love is deep
My tooth is sweet
My patience though is thin
So, come between dessert and me

you're out

banana Foster's in.
