2541

half fulfilled
in a constant state
of yearning
half distilled
in a rampant state
of wishing
half concealed
in a desperate state
of screaming

one foot
straddling
two dimensions

nothing
but a void growing
beneath

precariously flat footed
as
the soil falls
into
the hungry nothing
insatiable
surrounded by emptiness
blanketed
by dark thoughts

here i stand
consumed
by the hunger
terrible
in need
it fills me

between
every halted breath
your image
flashes
my hands clench
as my tongue
runs unbidden
across lip and teeth
