No Dessert

"Clean your plate now little girl"
came the voice flushing
through her mind like a swirl

"No dessert till it's clean"
made her design the illusion
so not to create a scene.

Pockets bulging no more room,
stuffed some into her socks
knowing one day she'd meet her doom.

"Your clothes smell like someone died.
What is this odor?
What are you trying to hide?"

Now with three children of her own
she rescues those words
from being duplicated like a clone.

LOL. I liked this, LD. I've had to launder some pretty messy kids pockets, so I identified with it. Glad you posted this.... hehehe

I would like to thank all of you for your replies, I was beginning to think I could not write anymore, for my poems were getting little, or no responses. So this thanks is much stronger than I can state, cause you all have made me feel worthy of continuing. Here's a big giant {{{HUG}}} You all are special.

Please don't ever doubt that you are worthy to continue! I'm afraid I haven't had time lately to do my bit with responses, but I like your work. Don't stop.
