#SalemVerse Prompt #18 – Flashing Lights

‘Flashing Lights’ was the prompt.

Each blink and flash illuminates

laid bare, the hunger shown

then lights fierce glare fades slow lips wet

and in the dark alone

a hunger deep, a need to fill

his thirst to satisfy

he must succumb and cannot wait

without a thought to why

he lusts and needs and craves and wants

then light once more shines bright

he stands before the fridge quite hungry

in his underwear at night

  1. You certainly had me wondering til the last two lines … “the twist”. I am laughing – was this you before the Diet or you now lusting after any goodies not on the list of things acceptable to eat? You are preparing the meals, so I’m guessing the fun stuff is NOT lurking in the fridge waiting to tempt you.

  2. I was always really terrible eating in the middle of night I would stay up late and then suddenly find myself hungry and then it was sugar in carbs and all sorts of things to satisfy the hunger. There are still plenty of other sorts of things in the house and in the fridge but it’s nowhere near as bad as it used to be. I think I’ve just about got myself under control although I could easily eat an entire cake as well because they’re just so damn delicious.

  3. I haven’t eaten any sweets since 2011, and that’s not because I am an angel about sweets, it’s just I don’t buy it, so it isn’t in the house. I don’t know how to bake and I’m not much of a cook either. Years ago I worked in an office building downtown and it had a bakery on the first floor. I would stop at Starbucks every morning and get a large coffee and their sweets didn’t do a thing for me, but the bakery making fresh chocolate chip cookies just lured me over there like a magnet. For me, I can’t have those Goldfish crackers in the house because I will just demolish them. I’ll stand there eating them and before I know, I’ve gone through a whole bag of them. Back when I had Oreos in the house, I’d eat one whole “line” of them without blinking an eye. I might have been able to pull that off when I was younger, but now not so much.
