I follow the rules

I jump through the hoops

I smile so politely

While my hands rummage the floor

For the bits of love that fall from your table.

I need to be fed

I want to feast upon you

I want to you to fill my inside

Until I can bear no more and scream

To the point I burst.

How long will you drop these mere morsels?

How long before I rebel and tear you apart?

How long before I devour you whole

And you melt in my mouth

while leaving me with sticky fingers?

I am hungry for you

Starving for you

I must have you

Before I die.
