Indulgence

Stop

Don’t open that door

Don’t indulge

For I will be

Sucked in

I won’t work

I won’t think

It will be

The tip

Of the sugared iceberg

I will take days

To swallow

 .

Holding the self up

On a metal hanger

Floating in the air

Don’t look down

Just look forward

Don’t reach for the candy

*Slap* hitting

My own hand away

.

I police myself

Around this world

I need to be

Perfect

Perfection

Is raining down

I can’t give in

To petty things

Like desire

I must

Walk forward

On my own bones

Not take the poison

And eat away my time

.

A statue

A pillar

Of what should be

Dry

Dull Boring

Standing pale

As perfection

Unweathered

By want or time

Not giving in.

.

“I’ve been good for so long.”

Says a voice

Indulgence

A lick

I can take that

A lick….

Now I want

The whole thing.

.

Perfection

Crumble

Stop

Don’t open that door

Don’t indulge

For I will be

Sucked in

I won’t work

I won’t think

It will be

The tip

Of the sugared iceberg

I will take days

To swallow

 .

Holding the self up

On a metal hanger

Floating in the air

Don’t look down

Just look forward

Don’t reach for the candy
