A poem about hunger. 


My girlfriend says I should write about poetry, that I have a few good thoughts. The below is what I have wrote in the last few minutes, don’t know what I was thinking but hope you guys like. 


Food is a fact of life

Of loving

And of living.
Hunger is with us 

Throughout all our life.

How I wish to be rid of you,

So I eat, 

Yet you go away,

But only for a while. 

The cake in my shadow,

The biscuit by my hand. 

I throw you away.

Yet the next day I find myself with you again,  

How I wish I could be rid of you.
