by The Chocolate Dictionary
The wistful feeling experienced during a dirth of chocolates. Chocolipsis is expressed as a question or unresolved doubt. Examples include:
- How many thoughts of pleasure are contained in an empty box of chocolates?
- Does touching the void mean palpating an empty ballotin of pralines?
- When we do not think of truffles and pralines do think of anything at all?
- She served the chocolates in one of her lacy bras. If only she had had a fuller figure.
- When Keats wrote of “The coming musk-rose, full of dewy wine” in his heart-tugging Ode to a Nightingale, was he anticipating the phenomenon of rose crèmes and the way in which they’d one day tug on our feelings like murmurous summer days?
