So you claim you are warm from the oven, a lightly browned and freshly baked mixture of all the ingredients I love. Is your hair, then, spun of silken cinnamon? Are your lips flavored with apple cider? Surely this must be a mistake – your skin could not naturally smell of flour and sugar, could not naturally taste of honey and sweet crème! You are a confectionery coquette, a sugarplum succubus seasoned to my liking and topped with a tart red cherry. Oh, you are a dangerous treat but I cannot resist just one little nibble. The days are so long, after all, and so hot. You cannot blame me for seeking the candied comfort of autumn, the spiced flavors of fall...

Oh, never mind, just forget all these saccharine musings! My tongue and heart are treacherously desirous, starved and craving such a multitude of exotic and forbidden delicacies. I can only do my best to ignore their restless grumblings and feed one a bit of pilfered chocolate, the other a moment's indulgent daydreaming. Any more than a taste and I risk a hopeless romantic's addiction.

This is a thing that I wrote a while ago. It has words in it and everything.

Shameless (alright, slightly shameful) self-promotion: [link]

You have a masterful grasp on the English language. I actually read this out loud - the word choice is delicious.

Furthermore, after browsing through your gallery, I can safely say you've got this wonderful, strong, personal voice in your writing, and I just LOVE it. It's a lot different from what a lot of writers are doing at the moment, but it's beautiful.
