Unspeakably Desirable

Champers

.

“There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.”
― Mark Twain

.

Go on,

treat yourself!

.

Such wonderful words of encouragement,

but oh the quandary it creates,

in a mind trained to abstain,

from treats,

due to the tricks they play.

.

It’s a merry tune,

which makes the heart dance,

wild and free,

indulging an inner party,

feasting on life,

so much to celebrate!

.

What are we celebrating?

.

I don’t know,

what time is it?

Let’s toast to that,

to being here at this hour and minute,

without any second thoughts,

because frankly I wasn’t certain I’d make it.

.

We must be careful,

indulgence is a slippery slope!

.

If you’re wearing skis,

then all is inclined to flow,

towards a delightful slice,

of chocolate cake,

which was carefully prepared,

for you and me,

to enjoy.

.

Treat yourself to a moment of joy!

.

“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”
― Oscar Wilde
