Cupcakes

A Poem by JessicaGadziala

"Cupcakes"- 1-5-14

You have to learn
to not listen to that voice at
three AM telling you how the
calories wont love you
and that empty feels more powerful
than giving into temptation-
because sometimes the cupcakes
have the answers
and sometimes the answer is in
getting out of your
too-empty-to-sleep-in bed
cracking eggs into flour and sugar
and turning up the music until
it drowns out the noise inside-
and it is always easier to sleep
after having created something and
with that warm sweetness filling
your belly for a change-
and sometime you will have to learn
that maybe the calories 
are a way to prove
you love yourself.

The flow of your voice is wonderful, Jessica...I love how you committed to the subject in it simplicity...yet it's not that simple to weave in words something that is complex in explaining emotions...and a late night snack won't hurt...it truly is loving yourself. :)
