I want touch to be common
and of the particular moment.
I want touch to come with a special look from you deep into my eyes.
I want touch to come out of nowhere
and surprise me with its warm connection.
I want you to respond to my touch
to reflect back the love I freely give.
I want to watch the sunlight dance
between our touching hands.
I want to investigate touch;
to start from nothing
test the shortest fingertip contact
feel the electricity of connection
let it grow as we discuss what is happening what we feel, what we imagine
let it end for now, or let it consume us.
I want touch to be a language
both a living conversation
and a silent communicator between us.
I want touch to be a healer,
a joiner, a comfort
I want touch to be excitement
I want touch to be reassurance
And if darkness keeps us from touching
I want us both to understand
and find the words to fill in for touch.
I want you to feel my touch
and for me to feel your touch
like the only link keeping us alive.
I want touch to be a daily reminder
of the wonder of life
and the wonder of us.
