Hunger Pains

The battle lines,
Are drawn within.
A sea of guilt,
A life of sin.

I want. No, I need,
So, I take.
Bury the moment,
Outer smile, inner fake.

Feed it once,
The beast wants more.
The flesh is rotten,
To the core.

Tempt me not,
Too weak for ‘No’.
The spirit sways,
It starts to show.

Knees touch Earth,
Look up above.
A connection felt,
Unconditional love.

The beast lingers still,
Just once will not harm.
No! Wise to the tricks,
Not crippled by charm.

Choices were made,
Regret no more.
Life goes on,
Now, close the door.
