If I've chosen to break my diet for you, you had better be there

I’ve been good

My diet’s been working

But now

I need something sweet


And it can’t just be


It has to be special

Like fucking vanilla ice cream


The soft serve

Not the processed kind

But it’s 1 am

And nothing’s open


I can settle for taste

So long as it’s ice cream

McDonald’s, you’re my only hope


And as I drive up,

I order

Tasting the creaminess

On my tongue

Running down my throat

The shivers I endure

In the winter cold

From pleasure and not

The lack of heat


But they don’t have it

Their machine –

It’s broken


And I sit there

For just a moment

Before pulling away

Hoping they can’t see

My disappointment


I had gathered the courage

To break my resolve

To eat something sweet

And you didn’t have it


The one thing I wanted

The one thing I craved

What are you here for?

If not to satisfy me?


I was making a choice

To break the rules

And you didn’t even

Have the forbidden fruit


What’s wrong with you?


And now I’ll suffer for

Anything sweet

Just because you

Didn’t have what I needed

When I needed it


And inside I’m crying

Because I’m now

Not only breaking the rules

But deciding that all the rules

Can go to hell


What was once a craving

For a small ice cream

Is now the desire

To gorge on all ice cream


And sweets


And so help me

And my diet

And it’s all because

You didn’t have my

Forbidden fruit.
