I cannot bear to be touched by you-
always only in friendship:
the innocent hugs
the slight way we bump into each other
our legs meeting
under the table.

Always each touch starts a reaction
that depraves me-
leaving me hollow and wanting.

I hunger for more than what your friendship
gives me
more than what a mere touch
can satisfy.

More than I can ever have.

oooooo....this reads like a mystery. Is the speaker in the poem talking about a co-worker, a relative, an older/younger person, a married person? Hmmmmm...well done!

I like this one as well.... short but moves gracefully through longing. And I can much identify!
