    the weather here is crazy--
    cold one day, scorching the next--
    kind of reminds me of someone--
    someone i've come to know more in depth than--
    i seem to know myself--
    someone who talks too much to listen--
    someone who--
    i relate to--totally.

    like the days sun--
    baking those who walk beneath it--
    like yesterday's rain--
    soaking those whoso list to trod along its wetness and despression--
    like the never-coming snow--
    i still wait for the chance--
    to touch that someone--
    whom i've touched for the last longest--
    and still have yet to feel--
    i
    wish she would
    just listen...
    let my words scrape her ears like--
    raspy afro pics stored in back denim pockets--

    let me owe her--
    all of everything.
    i'd like to touch that someone.

    "....afro pics stored in back pockets"

    I love that. And you are right, what good is the sense of touch if you can't feel. Keep writing
