You touched me soft…

You touched me soft beneath the cool
  and weightless sky,
And love, you were intent on my
  deliverance —

But locked inside this sometimes fool,
  a lonely guy
Was reaching for a reason why:
  ambivalence

Was all I knew, or’d ever known —
  Insanity —

You touched me soft, but I missed out

  for vanity

One thought on “You touched me soft…”

  1. Oh yes, And i have known that person. They leave the one reaching out more lonely than ever for it is in receiving that we give. And, Tragedy is enacted over and over again through our cultural hang-ups.
