Love's Leper - Poem by Francie Lynch

I am love's leper,
An untouchable, and
I once anticipated the water
From your lips,
To see compassion
Looking back.
I shared the food you brought
At arm's length.
I am dis-eased,
Laden with our sins,
Chased away to wonder.
I've left my fallen fingerprints
Where I touched you.
