love starved

If love is a hunger.Then my heart is 
empty.The pains run deeper then 
the pacific ocean floor.So many 
lovers my heart feels like a revolving 
door.I ask my mother to feed me 
cause i    hunger for her love .She 
gave me the left over scraps from 
my sisters and brother.barely 
enough to stop the pain.I ask my 
father to feed me and he only feeds 
my mother ,and when he 
remembers that I have no love he 
says hes fresh out.I asked my 
husband to  feed me .But he cant 
even make food.He gives me a 
dinner mint of lust .It disappears as 
soon  as it touches my 
lips.Countless lovers taking from an 
already starved heart. The inner 
parts of my heart consumed by the 
love given but never received.My 
heart is just and empty hollow lining 
.So empty the hunger pains can 
never be felt again.

    Awwww.......so sad. I know this feeling. It's kind of true that you need to look after ourselves first. Faith in something bigger than ourselves, surrendering our expectations, creating a support unit and hugs....lots of hugs. I liked this poem....it seemed honest and heartfelt.....It resonated with me <3

    Welcome to poetrysoup. Sad and poignant poem, beautifully expressed in verse. Our hunger for love and affirmation in this world is only covered and completed by one source~ Jesus~
