Refrigerator Temptation

fridge 1

Calm and cold, hides the splendor freezing

Kingdom’s treasure now contained within

Succulent pleasure taste buds pleasing

Ice-cream delight, overwhelming sin.


Coveting eyes, forever teasing

Wonder if I will ever be thin

Crawling inside, guilt at last easing

Discover all I fancy therein.

    I do understand the guilty pleasure of coveting ice cream. My weakness would be turtle sundae….l try to escape by just driving by, though occasionally I indulge and repent later. Smiles.

    I love ice creams and sorbets! I manage to resist ice creams, most of the time. As for sorbets, they are actually not as fattening as cakes so I indulge every now and again. Your poem made me smile.

    ah it turns bittersweet….when one does not understand their image and self worth and life becomes wrapped in guilt….very nice thump in this one…partcularly through the first part and the internal rhyme…

    I like this reflection–and I too really like ice cream. But I particularly like how you brought in the guilt and satisfaction in the second part!
