The Universe Is Sweet

 

The Universe Is Sweet

Beaten
Bloodied
Belittled
Your daughter says “Daddy!” with a smile
and you give her a kiss.

The Universe is sweet.

Humiliated
Bankrupted
Total Failure
You walk through the door,
and your dog jumps up to greet you.

The Universe is sweet.

Stressed
Consumed
Confused
You uncork a bottle,
Of the best dry Cabernet.

The Universe is sweet.

Hospital
Burn Ward
Accident
You open your eyes,
And your best friend makes you laugh.

The Universe is sweet.

Broken
Insecure
Small
Your lover strokes your hair,
And gives you everything.

The Universe is sweet.

Pain
Suffering
Suicide
You cross over to the other side,
And death is fucking beautiful.

The Universe is sweet.

Remember,
Remember,
Remember,
It’s the salt
That makes the chocolate chip cookie
Taste so fucking good.
