Day 201: Food

He never did know when to stop

This addiction was different from the last one

This one was good to the tongue

But unkind to his body

He knew the flavours from their smell

He knew the texture from their look

He knew it all and he wanted it all

He wondered how big he’d get

Before his body wore out

He knew that the taste was the only way

To push behind his pain and trauma

He knew he felt light and free when he ate

He knew the world saw him differently

He knew that food would silence them all!


Thank you for reading.
