Wanted: a human, a gentle embrace.

Pink Lemonade: http://bit.ly/PLBookpre

touch

wanted: a human, a gentle embrace

someone with passion, my true saving grace

a child sustained without love or compassion

not placated by their own parents' distraction

needed: a touch, one so careful and slow

deliberate reasons to melt away snow

a youth, so withdrawn, never brushing or missing

so background within, they might go on, not living

hated: a space, getting sharper and harder

long sleeves, cloth protection, and hiding now farther

a worker, hard-shelled with a chip on their shoulder

rejecting all love, feeling smaller and colder

felt: a small touch, all so sudden and needed

a tentative breach in a world so heated

a human, so small, an untouchable mind

starvation is killed by a stranger, in kind.

“touch" and a whole lot more available in my new book: Pink Lemonade: Stories of love Available for e-book pre-order on Amazon (link in description) and coming out in paperback on Thursday, March 1!!
