“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.” ― Mother Teresa
Today's Motif: Hunger
What do you yearn for? Write from another perspective than your own if you wish, but make us feel the hunger.
“I seek to be moved, my imagination reborn.
Let me feast on poems that feed my hunger.”
― Susie Clevenger
"I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,― Pablo Neruda
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.
“There are people in the world so hungry,
that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
