“The Hug”

 

He just wanted

to have some

kind of

human contact

to be hugged

to be touched

to be held

he had forgotten

what that

sensation

felt like,

a girl that had

quit

a week ago

came back in

to see a few

of the people

she missed

on her last

day

of work

one of which

was him,

she came up

to him quickly

pulled him

close

to her

as she gave

him

a tight

farewell hug

her head

only coming up

to his shoulders

he bent over

her

and hugged her

back

her delicate

frame

cradled in his

arms

the unique scent

of her

rising up between

them

he lost himself

in her embrace

one he knew

was spawned

in friendship

but that moment

of closeness

reminded him

of what he

was missing

living in an

empty world

of work

and sports

on his 70-inch

screen,

she loosened

her hold

on him

and he knew

he would have

to let her

slip away

the trace heat

of her body

still resonating  

against his

leaving behind

an emptiness

that he had

forgotten

he knew

and had learned

to live without

only to be

reminded

today

of one more

thing

he didn’t have

in his life,

the warm

embrace

of a woman…
