The Contagious Touch

By
More by this author
Pain spreads through skin, through touch, from within
The mouths that form words
With no beginnings, with no ends
Why is it there
What does it stay?
My brain says to banish it
But my heart soaks up the rays
I crumble at its existence
I lose feeling in my knees
I no longer stand tall
I no longer breathe
I survive on subtle hopes
The fragments of my dreams
I push and shove sense into them
To give them higher means
I’m built high on emotions
But lowered by what they contain
Because touch is contagious
And touch carries pain
