Deadly Sin of Gluttony

Today your sin was gluttony
You consumed my every thought
My mind-trails could not run
And they all unraveled at your door

But that was not enough for you
You also devoured my reason
Picked your teeth with my excuses
And muddied these already milky waters

And then with reason gone
You tasted even of my heart
And turned my turncoat emotions upon me
The forbidden fruit still tempts Eve

Now, even now, I feel your reach
Deep within me, stretching further still
Carnivorously grasping at my frazzled will
Bending it between your iron jaws

Today your sin is gluttony
You are utterly consuming me
But when done will this be real,
Or will you move on to your next meal?
