What once flowed freely,

thickens and becomes sticky.

Now it drips out

in long drawn-out drops,

slow, oozing, darkened

from its once golden state.

Still sweet, but now concentrated.

Push it much further,

it will become bitter,

burnt, unrecognizable

and no longer enjoyable.

Stop, before it is overdone.
