self cannibalism

a necessary action to

fill up the emptiness inside your body

take apart a human body, and consume

it, gnaw the flesh from the bones,

lick those bones clean

pick apart every part of the body,

wash everything down with chemicals

until the next meal.

waiting, waiting, waiting

until the need comes again

but is it cannibalism

if you eat yourself alive,

nibble yourself down to the quick

swallow the juices of your heart,

inhale your soul

spit out the neurones in your brain

if your conscience gobbles up

your mind,

if your guilt consumes you

body and soul

swallows you up, never to be seen again

until all that's left are shiny, polished bones
