The color of hunger

When I get that sensation of hunger,

My belly starts to howl, turning into a beast.

It starts off as a blue representing sadness.

This sadness is the emptiness that resides until there’s food.

The color soon changes to  green.

When I see a yummy snack, the beast quickly fills with envy.

A shade of red starts to form, this monster’s getting more hungry.

Deep inside, I can hear it moaning, groaning, even grumbling.

When at last, I take a bite of something very scrumptious,

The beast is calm, the color’s now yellow.

It is happy, content and shining.
