Love Contained

Unrequited love

Triggered by uncertainty

We wait no more

For tenuous tomorrows

There is only today

Our urgent unveiling

Explodes with passion

No more masks

Secret fantasies blur

Awakened abruptly

By the need for human touch

Missing the feel of hands

Longing for real love

During a pandemic

Passionate Stares Ignite Desire

The need for human connection and need for touch heightens when a pandemic separates us indefinitely.

I have hardly anything in common with myself and should stand very quietly in a corner, content that I can breathe.
