With A Link Gone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If you have not reached within...
Your appreciation for a touch,
From someone who needs you
To reach out...
Will never mean a thing,
Or make sense.
Since you have been taught,
Such touches brought
Brings implication of weakness.
And who needs to seek to show
'That' lack of strength?
Even though you can not explain,
How a chain with a link gone...
Broken and/or missing,
Can still cling or claim to sustain
Its power?
And by whom has this been proven?
