My Morning Treat

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 wasnt afraid
She was just sad
She hated being alone
It was her birthday
Her day!
She didnt deserve to be alone
She was home
But this didnt 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 didnt 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
