Hunger

Real hunger clouds the judgement so,
All traps use tasty food as bait.
When love is what you hunger for,
It makes you rush when you should wait.

If lonliness brings hunger's pain,
You must beware the siren's song.
Don't let your need select for you,
The first one that should come along.

While tangled in love's tender trap,
With someone that is not your one,
You could miss one that better fits,
Your heart, when all is said and done.

My hunger for a love that's true,
Has led me often far astray,
So if I move too slow for you,
I strive to keep the wolf at bay.
