‘FEAST OR SPOILS’ – A POEM

I have spent every waking moment
Devouring hopes, dreams
And fears.
I have hunted them down,
shredded and swallowed the pieces
For hours, days… years.

I hoard the carcasses and
Suck on the bones:
Their fading essence I savour.
I keep them buried safe,
Away from other beasts
Also seeking their flavour.
