Hour 21 – Embrace It

Embrace It

Fifteen weeks of isolation
In my hovel all alone
Keeping careful six-foot distance
Is more space than I have known

What want now is to touch you
Wrap you in a big bear hug
Feel your arms about my person
Cuddle in all warm and snug

How long? How long can this go on?
How long can I stand this fate?
Wanting nothing but to be touched
Caught in this ceaseless mandate
