    I am ravenous
    So hungry for you
    Just a nibble, a sampling,
    a morsel to get me through
    No matter what I discover,
    I yearn to know more.
    The thought of you causes
    a craving right down to my core.
    D a m n near starting to drool
    like a baby cutting a tooth
    I have an insatiable thirst for
    knowledge, and honey, that's the truth.
    Do you prefer tea or coffee?
    Do you take one lump or two?
    Has it become second nature to eat on the run,
    or do you savor every bite as you chew?
    It's been dinner time for ages,
    burned out candles have nary a wick
    Say man, this woman is hungry,
    can't ya feed a sista right quick?
    Throw some scraps from your experience,
    just enough to let me taste
    more of your sweet, delectable essence
    that my ravenous mind won't let me waste.

    ohhhhhh myyyyyyy, how I'm feelin this lately, sister. Crazy how when you're that starved for it, you just become overly insatiable. The other night a woman hugged me in a meeting and it sent me spiraling off into fantasies for 15 minutes. :blush: And I know the lack of touch is why I have been sick twice lately.

    Anyway, sister, I love your work, as you know. Keep on bringin it to us. :teach: I love ya.

    Awww, gempis. I'm sorry you had that experience, yes, when we are starving for something, the cravings can be almost unbearable. Thank you sista, your kind words make a poet feel so appreciated.

    love this

    :uzi: :hot: :flamet:
    i was moved by your knowing,
    intrigued by your speech
    you reached questions of my inquiring cerebellum
    this sponge thirsting for knowledge
    and you downloaded your college onto my brain
    my process will never be the same
    for i became your university,
    professor
    can i get another lesson,
