This Hunger

Walt's Writings

This hunger consumes me

Never ending

Never relenting

The need to write

Overwhelms me

Taunting me

Taking me

To the edge of creativity

Searching for the words

That will arouse the feelings

Hidden deep within your soul

The need will come

Then disappear

A teasing whisper in my ear

Telling me

That words are all I need

But whispering them

So I can’t hear

I tell myself to fight my fear

To think about all that I hold dear

And so my hunger is slowly fed

As images start to fill my head

The letters swirl around to form

The words I need

And a poem is born

A poem of love

Of life

And all that’s good

My hunger and the need


~The Tennessee Poet~
