Starving Unaware

Starving Unaware

It never crossed my mind even one time.

I sat at the table every day, and I ate, never thinking; never knowing the truth. Oh, I often felt full, satisfied; never realizing my ignorance. It never once entered my naive brain that my lonely heart was starving from lack of something it didn't know even existed.

Then you appeared; then you entered my sight; then you grabbed my thoughts. My once satiated body felt the sudden emptiness grasping tightly, and holding on like a needy, clinging child. I had never known true fullness; I had been starving like the beggar, whose belly burns from the aching agony of emptiness. I was craving you to fulfill my voracious spirit; my ravenous soul. I was starving unaware, and you were the bounty; the only food that could appease my newfound appetite.

Oh god, feed me! Fill me with the bounteous banquet; the pagan feast that is you! I can no longer exist without that cornucopia! I shrivel into a dry, emaciated ball of starving, dying flesh without the delicious repast that is your being! Feed my craving, gluttonous, yearning need! I cannot stand up from your table; I cannot turn away from your bounty until I have consumed every golden morsel of your love!

It never crossed my mind even one time: I was starving unaware.
