Touch-Starved: A Poem

I'm an amateur writer, and I enjoy sharing my tips and steps with you guys.


She doesn't get touched by many people

they see her as unapproachable


and that's far from what she is

she craves touch, she craves just a gentle hug

but no one will touch her

it has become a problem, a problem she doesn't want to bring up

she thinks it ridiculous

to be so desperate, for just one touch

but he sees the longing

he knows what she needs

so he curls up beside her, and doesn't move.
