Still Cooking

lovelorn hunger
this emptiness has no bottom
and I’m still cooking
as kitchen burns

~into night sky~

I now scream why
the only thing
I taste is
dying stars

  1. Wow! It’s like a trip especially with the transition. A descent into emotion and vulnerability. The final few lines are just brilliant and I can feel that urge to scream as it was building up. Fantastic work! I loved this, beginning to end.

    1. Just approving this one as well from my spam folder. What is wrong with WordPress. Shudder must be a trigger word for them, lol! Thanks for reading David! πŸ’

  2. I feel that β€˜lovelorn hunger’ and the emptiness with no bottom, Tricia, and love β€˜the only thing I taste is dying stars’.

  3. Oh this is so so gorgeous, Tricia πŸ˜€ I love the image of lovelorn hunger, the cooking filling the night sky and gosh the “only thing I taste is dying stars.” Unforgettable poem! πŸ’πŸ’

  4. WELL! I wish you were sitting next to me …. you would have heard a very audible “Ohhhhh” escape my lips at the end of reading this. What an impact! Just a great example of the form.
