A poem about obsession and addiction and food

Addiction 33


He stands there, his mighty bulk

haggard, a victim of his need

to choose among the adored


sensuous custards, luscious berries,

fudge filled cakes, pies, all lure him

entrap his passionate gaze


their opulent promise to delight his tongue

cruise like love through his veins

sun light his mind, rivets him


brows furrowed, eyes focused

rapt attention turns to frenzy

as he selects the succor for his soul


tears roll down chocolate mouth, jellied chin as

his body shudders

with relief
