The Touch

Rating: 5.0

You gave me your touch, you held me so close.
So soft, so gentle, and I hardly know who you are.

You gave me your touch, you held me so close.
You startled and overwhelmed me,
but somehow I succumbed to you and I desired more.

You gave me your touch, you held me so close.
You gave me what I've longed for.
Could anyone have given me the same? Or just you?

Was it a cruel trick of fantasy?

touch when twitched by the quest love seems razzle as lightening in the rain may not shock but may burn the tears by the love..when fired..............raving of love excellence when remembered, , , , , , , sui-generis, with credit of 10, well-penned, thanks for sharing

A very nice write, Cathleen. Sometimes, the magic of such a touch by another, even though it may be brief, causes a spark which ignites a fire in the memory that will not allow it to be forgotten, but dwelled upon and relished. This seems to be such a touch. Thanks, I enjoyed reading this poem. Best regards, Richard

I like the repeatedness of this closeness. An unconditional bestowing of 'The Touch' some come to know and love much...from the so many ways it is done. Nice!
