Hug

Locked,
in the safety
of grounding touch.

Warmth,
giving knowledge
of another’s life.

Accepted,
despite the flow
of wretched tears.

Sharing,
weights
without a word.

Intimate,
trust given
and received.

Released,
yet held in treasured
memory.

Lingering,
on skin
despite distance.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
