Sugar Cravings

I am tired of fighting 
This monster ūüĎĻ¬†
Of  chocolate cake.
It shouts loud in my ears,
It temps me.
Its poisonous ego 
Laughs when I crave!
It hounds me 
Like a roaring tiger,
It has no empathy,
It wanders in from the darkness,
It's controlling my thoughts!
It laughs out loud,
When I give in. 
It's cold,
It doesn't care,
When the pounds creep on,
It just waits on its next prey. 
Oh, how can I master this demon 
That's come to stay? 
I dare not give up!
