Comfort, Food and Me

In response to KTHT Weekly Prompts March 7 — March 11

Series of meetings,
Body and mind running on overdrive.
Finally, into my Pjs,
And my stomach wishes,
Something falls from the food pipe.

I make my way to the kitchen,
And make something junk.
I throw a fruit or two in the mix,
And then feel my stomach blush.

As I swallow sweet nectar,
I feel my brain doing a happy dance.
Feel good hormones travel through my system,
And my heart goes thump thump thump.

Comfort food is more than food,
Its an injection of self-love.
It not only satisfies your tummy,
But also, your soul and body.

So don’t feel guilty,
If your comfort food adds a few inches.
Life is stressful anyway,
Which will melt your calories away.

Thank you jules for this thought-provoking prompt.

Comfort food for me has always been more than just comfort. :)

Thank you to KTHT editors coach Spyder, Diana C., jules and Ravyne Hawke for always cheering us on to be our authentic self and for motivating us write from the heart.
