I'll Just Go Hungry

by Paula M. Patton-Ross

Every time 
I sit and watch
You sleeping
I outline your lips
And shake off 
The kiss
My soul is needing
With every breath
You take
My heart
Is bleeding
Beside
The love 
That
We make
An emptiness
Remains
Which leaves me
Grieving

I so regret
My nature
Iím a creature
Ruled 
By passion
Itís hard 
To explain
This
Emotional pain
That keeps me
Wondering
If 
Thereís time
In my life
To start
Over
But Iíll just
Suffer thru
Because 
I love you
Iíll just go hungry
