Naughty thoughts of chocolate came immediately to mind here!
Even when you’re on a diet you can still have chocolate. OK, you pay a little bit more for someone to calculate the syn or calorific value (these bars were 6 for £1.95), but the feel good factor of having something that makes you feel good without having to feel bad is worth it.
I wrote this over two and a half years ago and before I went to Slimming World.
I think it’s worth another airing:
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.
