Sex. I believe it is important in a relationship. I believe it can strengthen bonds between two people. It can also gauge how healthy a relationship is. But this post isn’t about sex. It is about the touch from that significant other. And for me, sometimes it can mean more then sex.
A light touch while walking by, saying hello
A pinch in jest, a joke only the two of you know
A deep embrace after time away, drinking each other in
A hand to hold your hand down the lane
A kiss, soft or hard, sweet or passionate, where only the two of you exist
A body to wrap around you when you get sad, hurt, depressed
A touch, that speaks love without needing the words
Many times all it takes is a loving embrace to make it all right. To be without that touch to love me, to bathe me in warmth and please me … I find myself drifting, with no anchor to hold me, no sail to see me to shore.
