"Nerve-ending Eater"

Nerve-ending eater take your knife teeth out of me!

Every day you are chewing on my vulnerabilities.

Haven’t you satiated your hunger yet?

Must you continue to devour my sanity?

A squirming, subcutaneous  vanity.

Must you consume my body?

Lightly strung together molecules.

Cease this rapacious feeding

On my tender nerve-endings,

My raw, exposed nerve-endings.

Stop your greedy feeding!

Stop your grotesque needing!

I will feast upon you when I regain my strength.
