Never feared to forget and shrug,
As much I fear the fading memory of her hug.
Her palms would become so wet,
between the rub of our warmth,
but her skin was so smooth I bet
that mine glides over it in calmth.
Two polarities one can find in
her hugs; having a deadly touch
and the warmth they have like a home,
killing me, saving me at the same moment.
As I lay here, holding on to the memories of her touch,
she comforts me through this frozen screen.
All cold and lifeless, yet she lights up my soul,
just by tapping fingers on a screen.
