Starving apple

I couldn’t hug her

Two buble gum chiclets and an apple

she was just beside me

All I had to eat today

I couldn’t hold her

I did try in my head

She was trembling beside me

Static were my arms and hands

I could not comfort her in that way

Two chiclets and a starving apple

Mom stopped walking before me

The sweetest red apple
