The Beauty of Touch

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


The beauty of touch is unquestionable,

its welling of the senses a seduction of worth.

Within love it is an agonising ecstasy,

a rapturous explosion of mind and body.

Within pain it is the physical connection

of mental suffering.


We long for touch, the gentle reassurance of place,

the consolation of being not alone,

and the foundation of love, compassion and empathy.

We search for meaning in touch,

Seek to understand one another,

our intentions and the emotions within us.


Metaphorically touch is the silent hand of emotion,

reaching out and striking at our hearts,

imbuing us with the power of understanding

and what connects us, one to another.

Touch is as rudimentary to our lives

as the air we breathe, the love we hold.


The loving touch of a mother,

the sensual touch of a lover,

the beauty of exploring sensation,

is part of our human potential,

our capacity to experience life in profound ways.

The beauty of touch is our bond.

      "The beauty of touch is our bond."

      Tony, you write wonderfully and whoever the hell thinks that you are not worth publishing is an utter buffoon. The soul that you write with, you blend your emotions in a fine mixture and dissolve it behind the veil of words which remain; decipherable to only those who wish to really read them for what they are.

      Hi there Tony. It was an amazing poem and I believe the beauty of touch exists for sure. Isn't that why we touch people? To feel and share our emotions?! Really heart warming poem Tony.

      Certainly TheWhisper. But I have little time to follow writers. My work keeps me more than occupied.
