Denial is a hungry feeling
Towering like a tidal wave
Its sharpened claws can send you reeling
Will power is the force to save

It claws your belly like a tiger
It bites you like an angered snake
Your sense of wanting grows e'er higher
You feel it's more than you can take

It taunts you with it's sickly sweetness
Beguiles you with saccharine dreams
You're lost within its sweet caress
You find you're on the losing team

Eventually the hammer falls
And nothing's left of you at all.
