I eat when I’m happy
I eat when I’m sad
I eat when I’m angry
I eat when my day was bad
I eat when I’m grumpy
And even more when I’m glad
They say you shouldn’t eat your feelings away
But they’re my feelings, so I’m going to do it anyway 😁
I wake up at midnight while everyone is fast asleep
I make my way downstairs, ever slowly I creep
I go to the kitchen with just the fridge light on
Devouring the last slice of pizza, nom nom nom….all gone
I was originally going to write “last slice of cake” but thought pizza sounded better. I didn’t eat pizza today but I sure love it 🍕😁.
Cup and coffee?
Break and beat
Or boil in water
Hard boiled or maybe scrambled
Ahhhh dream breakfast
It’s Friday and I should be excited
But I’m up early instead of being asleep
Under the covers of my blanket
Keeping warm from the cold rain
I’m up preparing breakfast
Eating stale crackers
To fill my belly.
The warmth of the coffee comforts me
And the staleness of the crackers is somehow welcoming
A slice or maybe not
The whole lot will be mine!
Apple, pineapple, mango, maybe strawberry
I just can’t get enough!
I tell them no!
I’m not giving in to my cravings
See, I don’t want pie
I need it!
Soft, moist, sumptuous
Oh my! Delicious!
I ate a slice,
A third and maybe last
Then had another
I didn’t notice and I didn’t mean to
But the cake disappeared!
All of a sudden
A mystery it was
It was there beautiful and mouthwatering
And then so quickly, there were none
Start the day
Trying to get back the energy I once had
When I was younger
When metabolism was faster
When coffee was bitter
And cereals were sweeter
Now I look at the table
Wondering of getting back in shape
Or should I just eat this cereal
Drink my coffee and go
Be still and stay silent
Eat everthing with your eyes
Let none pass your mouth for fear of being called BIG
Mind everything that everyone says
So you will end up being eaten up by society’s idealism of a perfect body
I want a slice of cake for each struggle
A slice of pie for each sadness
A bit more of both just because I feel like sulking
And prefer to eat more than talking
A slice of cake for happiness
A slice more for craziness
“You’re getting bigger”
Oh yes they say!
And all the bad memories rush, so severe
Made an awful day
And now I cry
Felt like I died
And on to die-eating again
Feeling like I failed once more
