Einstein defined insanity

as doing the same thing


over and over again, while

expecting different results.


Yet here I am in the same predicament

I hoped to avoid


before, during and after

Becoming an adult.


Answering the call, I cater

to a ravenous, raging creature -


a starving need that cannot be sated,

only made hungrier by more, more, more -


Bloated by excess with no escape

Under the guise of helping myself.


The only thing

which keeps me sane


is the other life I live

during a few treasured moments


and the dream that one day

it will be the only one.
