with Love

He sent me
A box of chocolates
with Love

A square box
With red wrapping
Gold ribbon

I paused
Of what it may hold

Neatly arranged
with Love?

I passed my hand
Touching slightly
the perfect round shapes

It can't be that
He really cared
But, what if?

I lifted one
Let down my guard
He must care!

It touched my lips
I quivered slightly
And dropped down dead

Note: He refers to 'they', multiple people. I just found this piece of poetry to be more powerful when I used 'he'.
