TOUCH (Five Minute Friday)

When I have no words
Let muscle, bone, skin speak
Stretch forward to imprint
Through sheer pressure
Of chest and arms
Strength, love, hope
Or lightly, finger on finger,
By osmosis
Or electrical current
Transfer the message
That you are not alone
A transference of molecules
To pump thorough your veins
Spark through your neurons
And permeate your heart, your head
With the missive
Slowly saturating your body
That I am with you.
