Special Dish

A slice of heavenly decadence, 
Melting on the tongue
Bursting with flavor, 
The taste of copper
Overpowering all
The bitter sweetness 
Of past memories settling, 
Chased by the acrid burn
Of guilt festering deep within
The sheer ecstasy of countless sins,
Flooding the palate
With such pleasure
A beautiful mixture, 
Unmatched by any other dish
The human soul, 
What incredible flavor
For such an ugly meal
