Pangs of Hunger (#AtoZChallenge)

This is my 9th attempt at the month-long blogging challenge, Blogging from A to Z. I’ve completed it 5 times so far. My theme this year is 7 Sentence Fiction, and the word I’m using for H is Hunger.

Pangs of Hunger

I see the meal, it’s near, yet so far. I stay in the shadows, praying for it to stay still. Then, I can pounce.

I know I have to be quick, for if it senses me, I’m in danger.

Countless relatives have fallen prey to its reaction. Their lives stilled by the hands of fate.

We are blameless, after all, even we mosquitoes get pangs of hunger.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
