Hunger


I’m so hungry.

Hunger cannot be quenched

from food alone.

Hunger for your arms around my beating heart

cradling my bones.

The earth shatters as you call me your own

secret part of heaven;

words you utter,

utter like a prayer

hunger for your body on mine

like the first communion.

Hunger for your lips on mine—

the perfect reunion.

Being torn apart doesn’t seem so bad

cause it’s in the nicest way,

from your heart.

I’m still hungry even after I’ve tasted you.

Hunger can only be quenched

by those 3 words,

I don’t expect from you.



The Writer Behind the Writing



Hi, I’m Jaz!


I’m a 19 year old, law student but my true passions lie in art and creativity. I’m a poet/writer, and also have my own youtube channel and podcast (which I started a few weeks ago). I’m also very passionate about human rights and making the world a better place for children and minorities especially. I think the arts are the best way for people to come together and it can be used to explore deep human emotions and experiences in a way science just can’t. I’m eager to bring black, POC, and LGBT+ stories into the limelight as they can often be neglected.
