Devoured - Poem by Simone Inez Harriman

Diminished
Skeletal and naked
I am now only candlelit bones
Mere scrap of a voluptuous feast
I had served with my best china

You my guest dined and fled
With all the silver
Consumed
In your haste to alienate
An emotional plate
I am swiftly scraped
Clean

Even now
Down the bulimic drain
Your hurt hurts me
My body waste disposes
Sewage from a compost
Of rancid depression and rage
As your chewing enzymes bite
Caustic from your heart
