his one touch

and you feel

as though you're worth it

as though you're here

until there's

someone else

with a wink

her soft graze

and you remember

what it means to be alone

so you hide behind

another sip

another pull

another something

trying to fill

a hole

dug deep in your chest

years ago

by someone since forgotten

who never told you

you were beautiful

that you were loved

that you belonged
