A New Hunger

A New Hunger

A Poem by Novel Minded_75
"

Just a quickly jotted poem before bed I am not a poet, but why not attempt this :)

"

 Time to eat

My stomach is not growling

 

Time to eat

My mouth is not watering

 

Time to eat

I have nothing on my plate

 

Time to eat

I don’t feel so good

 

Time to eat

Am I dying?

 

Time to eat

Blackness swallows me

 

Time to eat

There is a light at the end of the tunnel

 

Time to eat

I hear someone coming

 

 Time to eat.

The image and desperate/carnivorous vibe is strong. As a poem from the perspective of a zombie, this is perfect. However, as a poem from the perspective of a biologically normal human being, I think it can go further. Man does not need to be a zombie to do crazy things.

The interpretations of 'hunger' can be many. But I see that this is a dying man who then turns into a Zombie. And is hungry for blood? You wrote it just before bedtime. Did you have nightmares after writing this? But it a clever little poem and I enjoyed it

I wasn't sure what to make of this until I saw the tags. Zombie? Meaning the perspective of this poem is someone who is a zombie? It that's the case, then everything seems to click into place. It's great that you wrote this, even though you say you're not a poet. One part of writing and improving is stepping out of your comfort zone occasionally. Again, I look forward to seeing more form you.
