It’s a Sin

A devil, a temptress, a siren
Calling to me, drawing me in:
Your brothers and sisters an army
Of delight invading my soul,
Staring down from perches on high,
Teasing in their torment of guilt and shame.

Oh how I long to wrap my lips around such forbidden ecstasy,
Lose myself in the pleasure of this sin,
Suckle on the nectar of the gods
Disguised as nature’s cutest,
But in truth the evil of the snake’s darkest desire
To woo you with deception
That this is good.

Oh yes, goodness cannot be denied
But not in the way to cleanse our bodies,
Nor can we reject or repel the rapture we feel
Rejoicing as the last morsel is taken in
To disappear without trace
Behind a woeful smile of bliss.


On one of the many diets I’d tried over the years, any goodies were classed as sins, and you were allowed so many a day. With Easter just around the corner with its chocolate bunnies and shelf upon shelf of Easter Eggs in the supermarkets, I sympathise with everyone trying not to give in to temptation. šŸ™‚

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’m reblogging this to alleviate the boredom. I’m sure I’m not the only one sitting and craving all things nice because boredom has set in and there’s not much else to do. So far, since the lockdown, I have jammily managed to stay in target. But it’s not been easy and I have strayed, then pulled out all the stops a couple of days before weigh in.
    How many of us remember these ads from yesteryear?
    Which one was your favourite?
