The feeling of fullness from the fabulous feast has finally started to fade
No longer thinner due to binge eating (no sin) that I can’t deny
But my days of being a slick spy’s sidekick evaporated long before
Dreams dissipated
Staccato
Silently
Serenely
Like watching a sprinkling of snowflakes melt away to water
Forlornly but no more
The final whistle, though, hasn’t blown
There’s still life
There’s still dreams
And there’s still many a feast to be had

  4. A feast of words Tom,
    I can indulge without
    adding a single pound.

  5. Cooo, well done! I would have said “what a rotten set of words” and probably given in before I’d really got started. You, however, are made of sterner stuff and don’t allow anything to put you off. Very well done sir! ~ C. 😀
