They are devouring you
From the inside
Deadly specks assembled
Swarms of matter mutated
They are becoming

Thieves of thought
Interrupting, disrupting
with rampant indifference
Silent intruders
Stealing a life

By their greed
Soon, they will overwhelm
Victorious, yet defeated
They have hollowed you

Slowly, viscously
Pale and drained
Husk-like countenance
Mocking in its absence
As Winter to Summer
Beauty conceded
Frozen in memory
