Devouring Echo

By Storm

I’m so fucking sick of you


your parasitic disease into my
battered body
Drawing in my very essence
With your every inhale.
Indulge in your own image in my
Dark feverish eyes.
Darkened by you for your
Narcissistic purposes.

Cut in slices to fit in.
Flesh and Soul.
out of me
-to be filled by you.

Chewmarks on my bones
The only visible sign of your
Ravenous gluttony.

..and when you smile,
that smug grin,
Pieces of my skin are stuck
Between your teeth
Like spinach...

Floss, for crying out loud!
