Bland

Nothing tastes as something should
I wish to have no drink or food
For nothing seems to fill my need
And nothing suits me half as good
Or satisfies me quite as well
As being with someone I love
So nothing sounds like something good
Though everything seems like it should
The only cause that I conclude
Could cause me not to wish for food
Is that I’m hungry this is true
But maybe it’s from missing you
And nothing else has quite the taste
To fill the hunger or replace
The smiles that you provided me
Or comfort felt in your embrace
Nothing tastes as something can
When all is well and right again
Perhaps the mind is meant to sense
A better flavor with a friend
So nothing tastes like something should
For nothing could be quite as good
As being with someone you love
And suddenly I wish I could

  1. This is definitely a new favorite poem. It flows so wonderfully and I can relate to it well. Thank you for another amazing post

  2. nice poem about those times we wish for something more, something more than what we have. everything becomes bland unless we start thinking about it in a different way. 🙂 i love how the words flow in this poem, might sound great if set in to song.

    I know this feeling…loosing weight by the second, it seems…nothing tastes good anymore. 😦
