657 : The Chocolate Egg

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were gorgeous, jittery and outrageous.

The Chocolate Egg.

It is not 
Uncommon,
When you think 
Someone is 
Absolutely
Gorgeous;
That their eyes,
Their body,
Their presence,
Makes you,
Demands you,
Start sweating.
Your mouth 
Ignores your brain;
You stutter,
You feel,
Absolutely 
Stupid,
Anxious,
Jittery,
Entranced,
Until,
In an outrageous
Travesty of 
Natural justice,
They speak
And you 
Realize 
That the sweet 
Fa├žade
Hides
Nothing.

    2. No, I'm just saying that not everything that is sweet on the outside is hollow on the inside.

    3. There are exceptions, of course, but if I tried to write them all in it would read like a legal contract.

  2. Nice piece of writing. I guess you can never judge a chocolate by its outside.

  4. Classic case of 'skin deep' beauty. Albeit moderately thick skin. Another winner. Thanks.

  5. Fortunately this does not happen too often. I suppose it helps if we are not too obsessed with outside beauty.

    1. A strong case for truth in advertising?

  6. I'm always amazed how some good looking people can quickly turn attractive and vice versa. Yeah, nature plays cruel tricks at times.
