How to Hug a Statue

sigh . . .

come to me

let me hold you

grasp me tightly

and never let go.

I know your grip will loosen

and you will run from me

but I have this moment

before you desert me.

I've never asked these questions

I've never wanted more

embracing you seems to assuage me

and calm my worried mind.

you break away

you leave me standing

your life continues

while mine is stuck still in your arms.
