“If you have been touched, and I mean truly touched; then you will fully appreciate the superfluous…”

“If you have been touched,
and I mean truly touched;
then you will fully appreciate
the superfluous nature, of skin.
And how easily emotions
can transcend the physical.
We have no barriers, no protection.
We are as fragile in adulthood,
as we are in infancy;
only now, we understand pain.”
