A little humor

My aching waist is complaining

Desire to spend a life time with you

Is being confined within the four walls

Upkeep of which is slowly throttling my will

The aching heart is no match

For the constant reminder

Of the pain from areas I did not know exist

A clean floor reflects my sweaty face

As I ensure that it does not drop

And ruin a beautiful day

I don’t know what I am talking about

As the sunny day outside

Mocks my darkened face

A little humor maybe

To uplift my sagging spirit

As I contemplate the sun will set

Before I call it a day





TLT: All Good Things in Life…

My mouth drooling, roving eyes scanning the treats, each one tempting me
All good things in life come with a price, reminded my bulging waist
To all of you not volumetrically challenged, enjoy, while I sulk and pay the price of my sin
