Prompted poetry: hunger

Sometimes we are driven by something beyond our comprehension. In such moments, it is not difficult to believe in demons.

Appetite

It’s more than just emptiness, he said, or even a sense
something is missing. It’s as though you are
being eaten from the inside out, that whatever it is
you need will gnaw you hollow and leave you
a howling shell.
