September is Over

Bitter hearts lead to bitter thoughts,
Lead to bitter minds lead to bitter lives,
Which leads to a bitter existence.

Which is not as good as bitter chocolate - as the name may suggest.

So I am done being bitter.

I don't know if I ever was.

But I was at least on my way,
This is good for no one.

Bitter is as much hated as vinegar,

But the sweetness of honey is not what I want to create.

But a mellow taste.
Without too many specifics.

Not bland.
Not un-opinionated.

And easy to remind you of what your mind wants.

Undertones of everything.
Open and broad.
The only thing lacking.

That metal-y bitter bite that drives you away.
