The Hunger - Poem by Judy Meibach
The hunger within is hard to describe.
It's a void that consumes me
side to side.
It's not just the food that I crave.
It's the attention and affection that I yearn.
Do potato chips and pretzels
really equal a hug?
Will the cheesecake and ice cream make me
Does chocolate really nourish
All these do are
make me larger and larger
bursting my seams
to fill the void.
Shouldn't I just give myself a hug
or phone a friend who will
make me less lonely.
I could meet them for fun or
or meditate and write
to nourish my soul.
the hunger within me is gone.
I feel full and the void within me is no more.
