I’ll Abide

I’ll abide this
Abiding isolation
Touch deprivation
Dark longing
Clawing need of belonging

As long as our close connection abides
I’ll wait until you’re at my side

Survive on cyber touch and kiss
Write fantasies of shared bliss

Oh, how I tactile pleasures miss

  1. I love the rhymes in your quadrille, which I read aloud, and it sounded like a rap. I too am suffering from ‘touch deprivation’ and that ‘clawing need of belonging’ – excellent phrases to describe our current plight of surviving on ‘cyber touch and kiss’.
