one seeks
that which cannot be compelled
nor purchased
nor gained by ill pursuit
one seeks
that which is
beyond all else

the warmth of flesh to flesh
a kindness offered with only hope
for mutual reciprocation
when hands touch mine and I am lost
lost to whims of fantastic notion, I am whole
complete as physical melds seamlessly
mind, bursting with creativity
an eruption of idea, limited not by tangibility
nor by expectance, nor fear
but free

this is your gift
and mine, to you
that we may
ease the wounds wrought by societal banality
that we may
laugh until we’ve forgotten tears of sorrow
that we may love
