MANDALA # 08/1000 

Physical Touch

His hand on my leg under the table
My heart flutters
His fingers touch my back
I feel safe
She taps my arm as we laugh
We are connected
I collapse into her embrace
She will protect me
When he told me he loved me
I didn’t believe him
But when he kissed the back of my neck
I felt the world slip away
He could make me forget my own name
Out of my head and into my body
Words became meaningless
I needed his skin against mine to know
Show me you love me
With a physical touch
