Hungry Souls

Hope to be Loved

Shared by ladyliterati

Some, live their whole lives famished;
Love, loyalty, dedication, devotion
Crossed their paths on occasion
But didn’t linger long enough
To satiate these hungry souls

These are the wounded, scared, marred
With the inability to hide disappointment –
Look carefully…blank eyes, sunken sockets
Lines etched, furrowed brows
Lips lined with a permanent frown

Shying away from human contact
Thoughts, wants, needs, held chest tight
Famished, yet refusing to chance
The possibility that somewhere
Someone out there also hungers.
