Sometimes I struggle to keep myself ali-...afloat.
As I lay in the warm sheets I would question myself
'Why do I need to eat to live?'
the rumble from my stomach would be against my thought
but my body would be still, laying on the same spot
'I am HUNGRY,' I thought, 'I need to eat.'
I don't want to get up and find food
I don't want to get up and prepare myself a meal
I don't want to get up and chew the food
I don't want to get up and clean all the mess in the kitchen and myself
I don't want to get up.
If I just lay still, and fall back asleep, would I numb the feeling in my stomach?
In the end, I still got up and ate, because the answer was 'no'.
