Fatigue and Fasting

Reflection bounces
From all corners of the room
Heart rate pounding
Long after thoughts have been exhumed
Fatigue and fasting
The flesh must be as I am too
Withered yet bloated
From all the things I can’t undo

Let me explain
With a failing display
The grins thin
And pinned in place
The thoughts lead to a fresh decay

The pride is free
Yet still disappointed
The body is weak
But the rage builds a fortress
With heart and with teeth
The ascent is assaulted
The rolling back down becomes one with onset
