His Touch

He reaches out

To lovingly touch me

But I’ve been burned

And fear that touch

He lied

He cheated

And it is hard to forgive

Impossible to forget

 

He reaches out

But I pull away

Will he ever be enough again

Can I get past the pain

Do I even want to

 

He reaches out

And I am paralyzed inside

Maybe I am broken forever

Unable to feel his touch

Convinced he will only hurt me

But still he reaches out…
