"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Sugar Free

On March 14 I decided to try it:
A month without sugar in my diet.
The first week it was hard to last.
The second week improved quite fast.
The third week passed by, barely blinking.
Now it's April 13 and I can't stop thinking
Of brownies, ice cream, lemonade,
Cinnamon bears, dark Milky Ways,
Chocolate pie, chocolate cake,
Root beer, doughnuts, strawberry shakes,
Muffins, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls,
M & Ms and cookie dough.
This may serve as a timely warning
Not to go shopping tomorrow morning.
