Temptation

Temptation is everywhere now.
I can no longer feel comfortable around the kitchen fearing the chocolates all around.
I fear the temptation of picking one up and eating it. All the good delectable things inside it oh how much I crave for it.
Trying to wait till time passes I am trying to ovoid it with all my heart. Trying to think of something else.
Getting my mind off the soft inside the hot melting outside.
Stop!
Stop I will not eat it!
I cant. The chocolate is so close I can feel it’s warmth in my hands, oh, how much I want it.
It’s simple I just take a bit of it. Why don’t I just take a little one.
I pick up the cold, warm, dark chocolate and put it in my mouth.
Oh,
How good it tastes just like I’ve always imagined.
The delectable craving has now been fulfilled.
I look at what’s before me and see nothing but,
A pristine,
Immaculate,
Plate before my very eyes.
What have I done! Oh I said it would be just a taste but look at me know.
I feel guilty and shameful.
I ate it.
I feel as if the world has came apart.
I look deep, deep inside and find guilt.
I ate it.
I look around to cover it up another replacement perhaps.
I feel guilt and sad.
I ate it.
I look deep inside, deeper than the guild deeper than anything before.
Within the abyss of my mind and soul. I see something I should have had.
Strength.
A sword to fight the next wave of temptation that comes along.
I find hope and faith with in my heart. I feel it and I believe it I have the strength. I have the hope.
And I have the faith within
