Hungry kya?

Continuing with what I have been doing out here, well, here's a sampler. Not that I am much of a poet, but this was one of those days when I was hungry and tired and down and out and still trying to keep up with my deadlines. This one's kinda dark; not my usual style, but spontaneous nevertheless. Anyway, here we go...

As the night darkens
and slowly eats the day away
I stare at my monitor
Trying to work & keep my hunger at bay

The angered dragon in my guts
Gnawing inside me
Images pass before my mind's eye
Of life sucked from me

I am numbed by this hunger
Unable to feel any glee
The emptiness within
Making my life an intolerable misery

As I am slowly being
Consumed by this famishment
I wonder whether this work is
Just for the devil's amusement

Yet I am supposed to finish my work
Coz that's why I am here
Though sometimes I do feel
That it's just bringing the end oh-so-near
