Indulgence

I wish
I wish I could
I wish I could control
I wish I could control my senses
I wish I could control my senses as I pass
I wish I could control my senses as I pass the bakery shop
As I pass the bakery shop,I wish I could control my senses
As I pass the bakery shop,I wish I could control
As I pass the bakery shop,I wish I could
As I pass the bakery shop,I wish I
As I pass the bakery shop,I wish
As I pass the bakery shop,
but I stop,
I stop as I pass
I stop as I pass the bakery shop
I stop as I pass the bakery shop ’cause I can not
I stop as I pass the bakery shop ’cause I can not control
I stop as I pass the bakery shop ’cause I can not control my senses.
Since I can not control my senses,I always stop at the bakery shop
Since I can not control my senses,I always stop
I can not control,to have a cake I stop
I can not control,and have a cake
I just can not control
must have cake.

  1. This was such a fun poem, Nimue. I loved the form and completely related to the message. When I lived in Paris for a while I had to pass several Patisseries on the way to school. Fortunately I didn’t have a sou to spend on the temptations.

  2. Awesome — this type of conversation often whirls around and around in my head – when I am having a “brain freeze” … πŸ™‚ this gives me an idea of the pattern of on “paper” :-)… so, now, I am ready for some cakes or goodies to go with my mid-afternoon coffee!!! bravo!

  3. I like the pattern and the repetition. The subject matter convicts me. I’m trying very hard to lose weight, but I want to stop at the bake shop! Ha! Blessings to you…

  4. hahahahah… love it love it, girl!! I cannot stop my greed for those cakes, so I always stop by those WOW bakery shops.. and never stop from trying the delicious stuff there..

    A most enjoyable and “sweet” poem, Nimue!! πŸ˜€
