Ruined Feast


via Daily Prompt: Edible

Life is laid out
before me
A sumptuous buffet
of experiences
I pile my plate high
with edible promises
of love
laughter
happiness
Eager for a taste
of wholesome flavours
I scoop up
a generous mouthful
of a rich repast
ruined by
worms of betrayal
Your sickly sweet excuses
leave a bitter taste
I lose my appetite for love
