people look at me and they can't see... 
because on the outside I look as healthy as can be... 
but...I am not afraid to say, I am malnurished... 
lately I have been deprived from the main nutrients in life... 
I'm hungry for it... 
although I've had snacks 
woke up to breakfast.. 
and slept with dinners... 
I didn't feel say the least... 
some1 offered to buy me lunch... 
I told her she didn't have enough, she looked at me confused. 
and I just left it at that, because since I've known her...a buffet is all she's offered me. 

yeah...I've had some that cook for me...but they seem to always be missing the most important ingridients. 
...I'll try all different spices...but I like to keep it mild... 
I haven't had that full course in a while... 
never make it to the dessert... I guess I'll keep looking over the menu... 
the menu that I've been reading until my head hurt's... 
I need some food for my thoughts, some food for my latest heart condition... 
I need to be replenished...and only true love can quench this thrist... 
because I've been starving and my waitress is takin too long....

    Very interesting, soo well written, and very imaginative to be written like this. Great point. You speak from life. Well done... No flowery images, just the truth.

    Natalie, wow! This is a very powerful poem... your starving perception has gold that needs to be expressed a bit louder.. Hopefully she knows you are more than a healthy person looking straight at the condition... enjoyed your poem..pd
