Seven Days

In those seven days Pages of dread one should never taste Mending aged margins of so many ways My pangs forged upon jargons I must confess Piece by piece my resolve falters My stomach, my mind, scream in protest What consequence it brings I do not bother. In those seven days I become madder, madder and madder Devouring bowls of greed and hunger My fingerprints smeared onto empty cans A crime scene of euphoria between lines Crooked of guilt without a silver lining What decadence it brings becomes the greater.
