Hugs All Over

14 Oct

I want to hug you
on Bahia Honda beach or
in Baltimore on an autumn afternoon.
We can hug in Central Park,
or on the glass skywalk
over the Grand Canyon.
It frightens us both,
but I want to hug you there
in snow or spring
or on state lines so
we can be in two places at once,
or four if we’re running west.
I have this feeling,
together we can do anything
and wherever we go,
I want to hug you there.

    This makes me imagine the kind of feeling you have for a person that would inspire you to write this. It’s a very tender expression. There’s an airy feel to it as well.

      That’s what I felt, and the dude needs a hug. xoxo

    Your words are a truly beautiful embrace of love…and the hug it brings…is so very longlasting. Your poem was a real joy to touch and consume! Thanks for the light it brought to my day my sister!

    I like this, which is weird because I don’t like touch.


    • La La October 19, 2012 at 12:23 am #

      Thank you for this comment, it’s touching.
