My Morning Treat

My morning treat.jpg

I cradle you in my palms

Pretty you in a lovely…


The sensation

Your warmth

You make me feel just right

You are just where I want you

Right here!

So right!

You make me smile

I’m so glad I have you

My morning treat!

I lick my lips in anticipation

Just you and I

The bond we share

I lead you to my lips

That smell…just right!

Intoxicated by your captivating smell

I bring you closer to my lips

Through my lips and down my throat

My sweet coffee!

Perfect delight!

My every morning treat!

The silence made her pause in the doorway

It was strangely quiet

It was never quiet on a day like this

She felt the little drops of sweat roll down her face

Something was wrong

She could feel it

Where was everyone?

Had they left her?

Had everyone moved on?

Had the rapture taken place here?

She felt so alone

No one to laugh with

No one to hug

No one!

Just her!

She looked around

The room was empty

It was a bit dark

She wasn’t afraid

She was just sad

She hated being alone

It was her birthday

Her day!

She didn’t deserve to be alone

She was home

But this didn’t feel like home

No one was here

Had everyone forgotten it was her birthday?

How could they…?

Tears welled up in her eyes

The tears felt hot

She felt hurt

She didn’t expect so much

She just expected a little love

A hug

A joke

An evening with the people that mean so much to her

Her eyes and nose struck a good deal

They were leaking uncontrollably

She sniffed!

And then she sniffed again!

She could smell something yummy

It smelled like roasted…

Roasted turkey?

That was odd!

Did they leave something in the oven?

How careless?!

Now, she was sad and upset!

So she followed the smell

It led her to the kitchen

And then….

…they all screamed…

…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know me

I’ve known me for a while now

I know what I’ve done

I’m not proud of me

I’m not proud of the things I’ve done

I’m not proud of the life I’ve lived

I’m not proud of the person I’ve become

I’m not so nice

I’ve done very ugly things

I’m not worthy to stand before you

You should hear what they say about me

The nasty names they call me

The way they treat me

I’m a sinner!

You don’t want someone like me

No one wants someone like me

I’m better off in the shadows of my past


Before I formed you in the womb I knew you

Before you were born I set you apart

I have loved you with an everlasting love

Turn back to me with your whole heart

I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake

    And remembers your sins no more

Forget the former things

    Do not dwell on the past

See, I am doing a new thing!

I will build you up again

I have called you by your name

You are mine

You have been honored

And I have loved you

Therefore I will give men for you

And people for your life

Fear not, for I am with you
