skin hunger

craving physical connection

By Bri CampbellPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

i burn for the touch -

the heat of summer’s sun, blazing down is barely enough,

as blood is still cold, when the surface is warming up;

with these hands, i cover me, in comfy polyester fleece,

pretending, this blanket is, a human soul with layered skin,

smelling like vanilla and cinnamon,

the scent of Autumn’s unnatural aroma.

Skin to skin, heart to heart,

i bathe in the warmth of another;

deep inside, this body feels.. whole once more.
