MYSTIC POET

“SIGNIFICANT TOUCH, NOW, FOREVER!” a poem a.k.a.: “Bedbugs Unite(d)!” November 2, 2018, Friday! {Large acrylic: “Abstract: Jack and Rose, Together!”}

The importance of TOUCH – is well documented,

Existence itself – must-be – supplemented,

By stroking (and) caressing! Please! DO-hold-your-baby,

And, when we are older, it ISN’T a maybe:

YOU NEED TO HAVE OTHERS – TO TOUCH YOUR SWEET BODY;

The absence of SUCH – is clearly quite naughty!

Yet-there’s-a-tendency, I think – in SOME social views,

To-obscure touch’s-importance! And-give-the-body “THE BLUES!”

Science HAS established – we (all) need lots of touch,

So bodies can thrive – and-be-happy-very-much!

Our bodies need: good-food, sun-warmth, rest – and-wind,

Movement and cleaning – Yet! Please-don’t-offend,

For touch must be lovely – expected – (and)-inspired;

Bodies want: safety – and-LOVE! They’re HARD-WIRED!

So – find you some friends – who are touchy and feely,

And “grapple-them-to-thy-soul(s),*” and assure them that REALLY,

You’re happy to see them – you love them – and like,

Their presence and bodies! Plus-endorphins-doth-spike!

Yes!-Chemicals-emerge – when there’s touch and embrace,

And it makes things MUCH nicer – in-this unusual place,

Where there’s punching – and poking – and needles – and probes,

And this is quite fright’ning, for we-can-become-“phobes!”**

For some [folks] touch unkindly – in various ways,

But, hopefully, your-touches – will-be-good all your days!

And THIS – brings us NOW – to-a-most-important-thing:

YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER! who – much joy can bring!

For your partner is-critical, spending quality time,

Soothing! with-loving-touch and – sometimes-words that-do-rhyme!

SIGNIFICANT TOUCH, see-and-taste, smell-and-hear,

Is all SO IMPORTANT!

“I LOVE YOU, My Dear, for somehow our bodies have made us be one; being with YOU is a whole lot of fun, when our days can be spent – with cherish and passion!”

SIGNIFICANT TOUCH is always in fashion!

“SO, KISS ME AND HOLD ME – I’LL ASK YOU TODAY, and HOPE FOR YOUR TOUCH – “FOREVER!” I say.

“Inside and outside! (pause) OH! All around! And you-know, you might find – (it’s)-toward Heaven you’re bound!” The Mystic Poet.

“AND – a final note here! You CAN touch yourself too!! (It’s)-called-LOVING-YOURSELF, and it’s SO GOOD for you!” The Mystic Poet.

* – from Wm. Shakespeare’s “Hamlet I, iii!”

** – Having a fear of something – like touching! 😦
