Breakfast Without You

Breakfast was torture
Without you.
The kettle refused to boil,
The toaster burnt the bread
The milk curdled
At the sight of me
And the cat threw up on the bed.

Breakfast is torture
Without you.
Won’t you come back if I beg?
I promise to serve you
Your heart’s desire,
Sausages, bacon and egg.
And if that is pleasing to you
And the kitchen’s scrubbed up well
Won’t you make it a daily appointment
And put me out of this hell?

    Sorry Sallie but most can not stand my preference for a haggis and blackpudding sandwich between two toasted crust ends of a loaf followed by a pint of coffee so strong that you need a doctors prescription to drink it.
    Good breakfast conversationalist thought..Nice line in superlatives..

    A powerful poem that is loaded with lonliness. I like the concept of the appliances rebelling because of the absence of..

    Dear Sallie, thanks for the nice flow of your poetic verses...(it's parallel to my poem 'Your name') . You have convinced me to have a breakfast with you to talk how can we both escape from this hell, with a coffee or without. I give you a 10!
    I.love it!
