My hungry heart
Feasted on sweet thoughts of you,
Infatuated, insatiable appetite,
My one source of sustenance
In unfamiliar territory.
Lapping up your words
Indistinct images of your face:
To your sugar-coated self,
Concealing a sour centre.

The cake photograph is yet another from the Lake District, a café in Pooley Bridge. It was as delicious as it looks!
