The Burrow's Valentine Cafe

Every morning I cheat on my husband. I have tried to resist the temptation. I only end up with a pounding migraine headache.

I suffer from the absolute need for the delectable, awe-inspiring and indefinable quality of perfection you possess. No matter where I go, you are there. Every bodega, deli, diner and shop is stocked up with your warm, fragrant goodness.

I cannot be without you. Even while pregnant, I ran back to you. My husband cannot comprehend the magnitude of my desire for you.

I am forever enslaved to this legally addictive stimulant. I want you even now.

  1. Now you made me want one too. I did avoid it when I was pregant or nursing but that was the only time.

  2. Loved the post, most interesting to read.


  3. @ Susan/ Kelley- I really did try to stay off of coffee for my three pregnancies. I even stooped to drinking decaf and it didn't work. Thank goodness none of my children are ADHD. :D

  4. @ Yvonne- Thanks so much. It means a lot coming from you. I love your poems that are filled with such emotion and insight.
