red

what a feeling
to reach gently into a person's chest
with reverence, humility
to caress a warm, beating heart
feel its strength, delicate

soft

to look the person in the eyes
see that they can feel
the embrace

surprisingly, flesh is permeable
a thin vein
creeps its way back to your heart
snake-like, red against pale flesh

alive

entwining your arm
it reaches your chest
with a rush of everything
you imagined could be felt
and some things a surprise
but nothing so strong as

love
