While Languishing

While languishing, I find myself (again)
forlornly wandering into this room.
I spy the one for which I have a yen,
but merely watching cannot quell my gloom.

A blue, like robins’ eggs, and cherry red,
the colors of her roses that entice,
adorn the velvet sheet of white that’s spread
upon this temptress, stimulus for vice.

I know I should be strong and never start,
but like some rodent crazed, I want to crawl
my way into that center creamy part,
then wallow there and feel no guilt at all.

But since I'm sweetly beckoned, I partake,
my diet foiled by luscious birthday cake.

(An oldie to post since I am not inspired enough
lately to write for any contest)

    And so the saga continues. Temptation attacks all your sinues. What else could you do but to eat till your blue. Tomorrow, you can worry about the thin you.

    Now you're talking my kind of languish lol. I could not help but notice this was about food again Petal. If you need inspiration, how about a bun fight or custard pie throwing and consider the cleaning up. I'd write about that but would probably get chucked out the soup lol. BTW great kicker on this superb write. Take care, Richard
