Hunger

Wed, 10/24/2012 - 23:18 -- KJ93

Hunger is a longing,
a need to be held,
a desire to be loved.
It burns like a flame,
never satisfied, never quenched.

Hunger is the twisting, crippling pain of starvation,
the plea for a crumb of bread
or a morsel of meat.
Left unsatisfied, it consumes,
eating away at strength
until finally it has its way.

Hunger is the motivator;
the strength behind determination.
It goes by many names:
desire, need, want,
pain, love, hate.
Fire, however, is my name for it;
it cleanses, strengthens, purifies,
consumes, and destroys.

Hunger is fire.
