An insatiable appetite

Death never crosses the mind

Just more

Pushing the body like a rag doll

Because it can take it

The division of the mind from every limb

Makes it easy to think you can take more

Nothing in the mind stops the urge for more

When the body screams stop

You can’t hear

And the body keeps going


You think the body and mind share your being

When the mind wins every time

I want more food even though I am full

The mind screams to feed it, drink it, run it

Just more.

The body has no pull and the mind pushes forward

The ruler of your being

And the body keeps going

Now you can’t stop

Your body stands alone in the struggle to share your space

But you’ve stopped listening

The brain is the size of your fist

And your muscles have no shot

In the war to listen

To your body.

Now it’s too late

The mind collapses and your body stops

Death becomes a word you know

Taught by the body

Abuse takes hold

And excessive thoughts within the brain bring you to bed.

The body wins.
