The Sinful Hunger

I like how this poem goes from so very lost and alone to having new hope. Although the line "not a pleasant sight" doesn't exactly feel smooth, like maybe you were straing for a rhyme, but all over a good poem! Peace - Ian

Thanx Ian for the comments

Now that I read in perspective, I realize that it does seem strained... I have changed that bit... Thanx again!

Helllo :)

Great poem and impressive thought process behind the theme. Now me bing a bit picky :P there are a few words you could avoid, "Carrying a rumbling "tummy"" tummy is slightly a "cute slag" word used for comic poems, and this is a very serious one :).

Also "leaving the stomach eerily wry" is very similar to "carrying a rumbling tummy" almost a repetition, would be nice if you re-worded either of those lines.

Once again try avoid rhyming so much :P I know you love it, but to a certain extend your attempt to rhyme the poem has led to some interesting word choices :P Such as "tummy", "wry", "bore" etc.

Overall this is a lovely poem; a little bit of editing and polishing will make this poem that much better. Thank you for posting it and keep writing :)

Thanx for the comments!!

Attempting to rhyme is not a weakness :), it's a very good practice, and as you write more you will get better at it and eventually you will have poems with rhyme and great mixture of word choices as well.
