If you are with me tonight
I'll stay and I promise,
I won't watch television all night long
or eat cookies in bed
like the last time when I left cookie crumbs
on your white comforter.
You said I had crumbs all over my mouth
but I think I must have eaten every chocolate chip
because I had a tummy ache
and I dreamed rivers of molten chocolate.
