I suppose who is and has been
Has already seen felt
The hands full
And the full hands becoming empty
Naked at the cold
Because when we hold grab
Too tight
Something precious
We suffocate
The smiles and the kisses
We die a little
And we don't even cry
The little lost piece of soul
Forgotten
(You don't cry what you forget)

I have had my hands full
And I have had them full of nothing

Wow!!!
I had to read this one twice. What a great poem with many little hidden meanings in it. Very well written..it all comes together nicely in those excellent last two lines!!!!
