    constant aching in the arms,
    shoulders burdened by
    the invisible weight of years,
    dull pains shooting from thighs
    downward, intermittently
    aggravating old knee injuries
    fingers and hands, radiating
    sensations that feel like numbness
    then seizing, becoming cramped
    chronic lower back pain,
    spasms in the neck muscles,
    involuntary ticks in the face
    dark circles shading the eyes
    dry mouth, swollen sacs, irregular
    breathing, erection 24/7s,
    empty heart, mental decline


    touch starved

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! The need for human touch!

    Don't laugh y'all this has been backed up by scientific data, I don't know about the
    24/7 erection, I don't think you can actually die from lack of sex, it's called failure to thrive
    babies die from this when they are abandoned at birth and only touched to be fed or changed.
    Says a lot about our needs and our wants. It is not a fallacy after all that we can die from not
    being touched. So reach out and touch somebodies hand...make this world a better place if you can...(THE BEATLES) I think it's true!

    Blessings on your House!

    Whoa, this hits home. I used to get sick all the time when I was touch-starved. It had indeed been backed up by science, that we need the human touch and love. Not sex, but touch and embrace. This is a beautiful piece. Thank you, 1poet for bringing it back, and saleem for posing this scribe.

    saleem,
    Very poeticly descriptive and i don't want to live like that even if you can't die from that. May the sufferer be blessed with RELIEF soon.

    Peace and Blessings.
