Hunger Is an Organ Tone
Music: Erbarm mich dich, O Herre Gott
|Alpha List||Hunger is an organ tone,
A single note sustained
Perhaps until one is before
Yearning doesn't end with love,
Vintner of despair.
All the love one can conceive
Leaves some longing there.
Even in one's lover's arms,
Needing nothing more,
There's a void within the heart
Increasing loss with store.
Nor can one love but feel that pang,
Empty at the core.
