Shaking and drenched in sweat,
I wake up from dreams of chocolate.
Check in just for the heck of it
But I already know…
It’s a midnight low.
Cookies, peanut butter, ice cream too
Graham crackers, trail mix, I barely chew
That blueberry pie is in danger
But the brownies are the real game changer.
When the cupboards are almost bare
I feel as though I’ve just had an affair.
So I stumble back into bed
Visions of cupcakes still in my head.
I cannot fall back to sleep right away
Inside my brain is a mental ballet.
My mind is just as full as my stomach
The whole thing is slightly comic.
