Carnal Hunger

73 25 10

A forbidden urge tore him asunder,

the birth of a cruel and insatiable hunger.

A loving father turned detested villain,

unable to keep his temptations under control.

He feasted on his wife and children,

they had outlived their meaningless roles.

Resistance is futile in this one-sided fight,

crimes driven by a demonic appetite.

Destroying everything he so dearly cherished,

taking the blame for his lack of humanity.

A beautiful paradise crumbled and perished,

longing for the carnal hunger of insanity.

The cannibalization of one's own soul,

a forbidden act gave life to the abominable thing,

The father was woefully unable to condole,

for flesh was a dinner for heartless kings.
