Sweet addiction


The taste of it makes my brain rush,
At 180 km/hr.
My heart starts beating fast,
My body gets all energized,
My taste buds dance a tango,
My fat cells throw a party.
Building blocks they are for those hips, butt and thighs,
Easy to gain and hard to lose.
But am addicted,
Can’t help myself.
My eyes wander when they are in the room,
My willpower shrivels and hides under the bed,
No courage to resist,
This overwhelming addiction,
To sugar,
In sweets, biscuits, cakes, chocolates, juice,
The list goes on and on,
And the hunger grows,
For more and more SUGAR.
