A Famine In My Head - Poem by Jennifer Chalk

There is a famine in my head
A drought
Despite the green green foliage
Outside
Is it the fault of heart
Or mind
The body's weak
So maybe a virus
To go in time

I'm fighting an uphill battle
Not gone
Wishing it away has done
No good
It's only been dissociation's
Food
For thought
There is a famine in my head
A drought

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was going to get rid of this one but then I decide no - I want to acknowledge that we can all get like this. It makes me appreciate the good productive times even more and the fact that we have to keep nurturing ourselves and others. Gifts can easily be lost.
