an acquired taste

by phishy

An acquired taste

After we had sought the gold with all our haste
And aced the valleys that were trap-laced;
The asylum of my spoiled head, I paced:
I fought my foes and yet was graced,
By new demons, the agéd replaced.

Embedded in my own new chaos, I waste…
Roots of bliss must be retraced,
For deep in memory these must be placed
And then onto my heart, I must paste:
These happy victories against ghouls we faced.

The sparkles of my mind involuntarily raced;
And for their destruction, were they braced;
Until it was inspected, what I had chased…
It was then that I decided to look to the Fates:
I have acquired you… my acquired taste.
