Extolled upon ravenous breath
as yearning tugs upon crusty corners
and fingers pick at soft center.
Eyes swept by a frosty chill
now berated from a scolding sun
“The child left for too long.”
As mouth alight the senses burn
emotions stifled beneath control
finally grasp at a breath long held.
Disintegration making parts most prized
and the dormant hunger wakes with rage.
Chewing in pleasure
fasting with ecstasy
sedating a monster
born from repression.
