Affection?

So long since I have been touched.
So long since I have touched another.
So long since I have shared an emotion.

Absence of physical contact.
Absence of emotional support.
Absence of tenderness, kindness,
passion, love or lust.

In a crowd, I am alone.
In life, I am alone.
Always, I am alone.

Every day I help others, yet,
at the end of the day,
alone at empty space I stare —
because for me, there is no one to turn. 



I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell.
