A moment of reflection

Thoughts of food have captured my attention
I love that spirit flashing through the words.
My head goes up whenever food is mentioned,
although I know my urge is for the birds.

I yearn for just one bite, and I am lost.
My compass swings and sends me round the bend.
I grab that two scoop cone despite the cost
and lie about the calories I spend.

I know I need more power to resist
but each yumm in my mind defies the thought.
No fear I know will force me to desist,
nor shrink the might gut that I have wrought.

Forgive me for my lost, misguided play
for this temptation ripped my mask away
