Touch – Poem of the Month – January, 2020

Touch

The power of touch
One stroke of a hand
infusing energy
into a worn-down body
Shooting through veins
A much needed
euphoria producing drug
The simplicity
of the act
yielding results
Impossible to gauge
the enormity
of the action
Yet infrequently used
As if too personal
Invading another’s space
When sometimes
the silent cry from within
must be heard 
The humanity of action
to supersede the insanity
of what we have become
