And all is a metaphor

And all is a metaphor

For loneliness and the longing of being touched

Or to touch, a bit or a lot,

Back and forth, rubbing against,

Brushed or patted, scratched, bitten,

Licked even, to quench a hunger,

Salt of the earth, loves worth and weight,

Pressure and release,

Embrace, softly or mighty,

Trace contours and lines,

Crossing over to passion,

Feeling color, scent, and sound,

Breasts, liquid, luscious, slippery,

Think of the metaphors found,

In a hand, to give a hand,

To wondering states of mind,

A wondering hand you find.
