Hunger – Poem by Sonam Hajela

I bleed internally
There’s a scratch
I can’t seem to itch
Where is it
In my heart
On my tongue
On my body
Rolling over my arms, legs,
Feet aching for a body
Fingers restless for a touch
My thighs quiver for a need
I can’t express
The wind whispers something to my mind
I want to taste the salt on your skin
My tongue licking my lips
My fingernails leave marks
Their trails a mark of my todays
And yesterdays
Telling me I still live
I hunger for more
I want to be pleasured by the skies
The sun caressing the insides
that have spent a lifetime
in the desert.
