Theme: Agony

Ice Age

I was relishing my youth

like icecream,

dangling it on my tongue

lest it should melt too soon.

Tut!

At some ecstatic moment

When I was in cloud nine

It slid down the gullet.

When I came to my senses

All that I am left with is
 
A cold, clean, sterile tongue

with a lingering tang hanging on to it.
