To be touched
To know the unknown
To understand
~A simple touch

What am I to you?
What is it you would say?
If I took your hand
held it as mine.

Fingertips and
A heart, a mind,
…a soul?

Time passes,
I wait along.
I say that’s all
I ever want.

I lie.

The hand that’s yours
So close to mine;
I’m still alone,
Still scared.

To be touched
It’s all I ask
But the choice
Is not mine.

To take your hand
To know your heartbeat
To feel your sweat
All I ask.

To be touched
To know the unknown
To understand!

…A simple touch…
