Starving the Beast

Resentment
       is a snarling beast
Birthed
                              by betrayal
Nurtured
               by regular  f e e dings
Until mind
        and body
                   no longer function
Not        in any             co*hesive fashion
They exist
                  at odds
Emotion
                 fighting
                                 thoughts
Both exhausted
                                   and un*inspired
When shut*down begins
              it comes
                            as a relief
A course of in*action
                on which
       all can
                                 agree
With*holding         sustenance
Courting the loss
                         of substance
Knowing
      presence is

                 no longer
                              required
