"I never feel hungry anymore
only pain, when my stomach is screaming
but maybe it’s not my stomach
maybe it’s my heart
and maybe I’m always hungry
but not for food
maybe my heart craves you all the time
and it takes up my feelings of hunger
maybe I miss you so much
that I don’t eat
only to feel pain
when I start to realize you’re gone"
