Sugar

I am slowly understanding
The difference between
Sugar and saccharin
That cloying sweetness
That bitter reward
is not for me.

I know sugar,
I have learnt to recognise it
Even before it touches my lips
By a mere touch
I am learning
to taste it, to sense it.

Next time,
I will not be fooled
by the dishonesty and deception
of that synthetic
I have tasted sugar now
and there's nothing better.
