Day one of the GloPoWriMo, write thirty poems in one month challenge and am feeling up for it! (Oo er!)Today, the challenge is to write a poem about a secret shame or secret pleasure and cheese immediately sprang to mind! Now that my life affair with cheese is officially out there, I think it’s time I celebrated with a slab of Gorgonzola!

Confessions of a Cheese Addict
It’s time my secret was unearthed
This love affair won’t ease
Quite frankly since I joined this earth
I’ve had a crush on cheese!
I’m on my knees each time I spy
A raunchy piece of cheddar
Gruyère or Emmenthal and my
heart’s light, and soft as feathers
The draw of Sbrinz has me convinced
And Tête de Moine’s compelling
It’s not by chance or circumstance
that on Swiss soil I’m dwelling!
Too much Raclette, I just can’t get
My heart melts with each portion
Fondue is always a safe bet
My lust defies proportion!
And who needs sweets or chocolate treats
when Brie and grapes are calling?
Poor substitutes cannot compete
It’s clear for whom I’m falling!
I guess it shows how far this goes
We are made for each other
Dear Cheese, you had me at hello!
I’ll always be your lover!
