Craving a person
to fill a hole, the space
that never completely
filled as a child

Or, was hollowed out
during the tumult of
living with flawed adults

I feel the void like my
lungs can’t completely fill
with air when I have a chest cold

A wanting seeping escape of
air from the body balloon
causes my core
to shrivel in on itself

Finally a prune with
concentrated sweetness
to be eaten
in a giant’s bowl of cereal.
