apart

it’s like
holding my breath
under water

need for air
gradually
eclipsing
everything

it’s like
fasting for days
at some point
i grow
accustomed
to the hunger
and the pangs fade
until i think of food
or catch the smell of baking bread
and my concentration
falters
the thought of food
invades my consciousness
craving
takes up
all the space
around me
