To Lick It Or Not…

The mind can create such turmoil
Bringing our thoughts to a boil
It can make us lick our lips
And make our heart turn flips.

Longing for something isn’t bad
When it’s something already had
Can put us in a different place
No way to hide desire from a face.

Maybe I shouldn’t want it so much
Willing my fingers not to touch
I can almost smell how sweet
No doubt good enough to eat.

The desire is just too strong
Something this good isn’t wrong
I must uncover and just take
Last piece of chocolate cake.
