the hunger

the hunger you despised i no longer have.
will you take me back, fully,
whole as though i never diminished;
never have you feel how light i’ve become
despite how i’ve wasted away… this life,
without having gone away or come back, to and
fro or back and forth like i was supposed to
in this journey to nowhere but myself; how i’ve
become suddenly exposed and there’s not much
to conceal from the light except how simple my
life has become… no pen on paper, but merely
a derivative of chalk against the sidewalk where
i can scribble i still love… i still want you
