*Seven Deadly Sins Part 5 of 7*

**Please note- I LOVE food, cooking, and eating. I strongly encourage everyone to eat their fill and enjoy the process. This is just part of the 7-Deadly Sins writing compilation- please DO NOT take this as a promotion for eating disorders or body dysmorphia. If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder please call: 800-931-2237 or visit**





Even if it is just “okay”

I enjoy every morsel.

Happy, sad, upset, or bored-

Food brings comfort, celebration, joy-

To every occasion.





Even if it’s bland-

I’ll consume every drop and crumb-

Until it all disappears.


I cannot control it.

More than my share-

More than I need

I’ll eat and drink until all is empty-

“moderation” long forgotten.




Lip-smackingly sweet-

Excess is my only rule

When I eat.
