Porn and Ice Cream

A POEM BY GARY L. FRANCIS



I scream, you scream, we all scream for porn and ice cream.


Wait! What! That can’t be right?


I am heading home from work tonight. To be quite honest my last hour was a fight. I just want to Netflix and chill by myself with all my might. I want my stress to be gone. Out of mind and out of sight.


In my car I have a split second. Turn left or turn right. Do I stop at the store or head home for the night. Resting with You, is what I should do. Right? I just want a bite. A Vanilla Swiss Almond delight. At this point, who cares about my diet.


I don't want to think about the consequences if I choose to buy it. I want a temporary comfort to make me feel alright. My heart feels heavy. I feel darkness encroaching and approaching my light.


Can I be true?  And tell you the truth?  Let me tell you what I am going through. I sincerely want the real thing but I am dispirited and blue. I feel like a monkey trapped in this urban zoo. No matter what I do, I have a hard time reaching You. My hands slip through, my grip does too. My eyesight is waning and I am losing my view. It's not just the ice cream that is calling me too.


I am inordinately transfixed by this momentary fix. I know that tricks are for kids but I like these vids. These Porno Videos got my neurotransmiters out of control. My dopamine levels got me feelin’ swole.


I scream, you scream, we all scream for porn and ice cream. What’s this I see in front of my screen? I need to clear my eyes. I need some Visine. Wow, that was perfectly executed poetic timing. Excuse me for my bold words, I am not trying to be grimey.


I scream, you scream, we all scream for porn and ice cream. Yeah, I said it. Come fight me. Stop judging me for my beam.


You see, I gotta stop eating porn and drinking ice cream. The combo effect has not been nice to me…


I keep staying in a cycle of fantasy to fantasy… I keep repeating the cycle of what was done to me …


Porn and Ice cream is often a sign that I am feeling lonely…  


I am feeling lonely …  Instead of this … could you hold me?


Healthy touch … would this be to much?


I need intimacy…
