Hunger

A Poem by LostandForgotten
"

A poem of poverty

"
Hunger
It eats away at the guts, the soul.
the pain of not knowing when it will be cease haunts every waking dream and thought.
Paper?
Why so important?
Why the fuel to every fire known?
Rags, but not to riches as it may seem.
Stuck wanting 
Crying
The fear and disgust of not having what most do not even treasure.
hiding how much the hunger eats away.
Money taunting every move
and laughing in the face of the fallen.
Emaciated limbs viewed as beauty
hunger 
starvation
alone

the sharpest blade cuts deepest. Your poem is a blade forged of hearts blood but needs a bit of sharpening to cut as deep as as its subject demands.
Hunger, paper, crying, hunger starvation alone, the focus of those words doesnt quite connect together if you see what I mean.
You have a fine turn of phrase and language and I enjoyed it, honest and truthful.

Your words on its own speaks volume but thread together like this loses its intended purpose.
