I taste
the sweetness
in your words,
only to wonder
how many others
have tasted
them too.
(But dear, I hope your words are true)
AND IS THE TITLE OKAY? I don't know, I feel melancholy just works for this.

"(But dear, I hope your words are true)" would be a great title.

Yes. But it symbolizes my thoughts whenever I receive a new "friend", because I am always naive and used to think they'd never betray me. I thought wrong. Always. I always thought wrong. You're nice and poetic at the same time. Surprising and commendable trait in people. #youaremyhero

That is true! I am not sweet. When I see people that deserve a thumbs-up, I will give it to them. I don't consider myself sweet. You are truly amazing. 

And to think I found you from the front page of dA...

It's good, because the meaning can be derived (i think that is the right spelling?) from just a few words. 
I think that it could ne possibly better to drop the "thoughts" and have the title just "melancholy", but both would work well.

okay thank you! I have recently really been liking longer titles and I don't even know why! I feel as though they are giving the poems more depth? hahah. Anyway, thank you flower, and stay splendid!

From what I think, they sell chocolates in boxes so that they can be shared. It shouldn't come down to melancholy from thinking it's a singular possession. Share the love. :)

I think that what TangledTales is saying here is that one of the people in a relationship fears that the other is a hopper- just jumps from person to person with no real attatchment to anyone. And that the hopper says lots of nice things, but the words are empty. I didn't get the idea that it was a person who just spouted compliments because they are kind. 

I see your point, though, and I adore your analogy.

The title is great! "Sweetness" would also work, but that's just me. I love the sentiment captured in this poem, because I know I have felt that before. I wonder how many others have too. Thank you for your beautiful work!
