Hands Gone Cold

My feet begins staggering 
My weight feels off 
My vision starts fading
I feel I cannot talk
Hands gone cold
My touch is almost gone
All these feelings
Makes me feel I am old
My hearing is silencing
My nerves begin to twitch
As I feel my whole body
I feel nothing but an itch
An itch for love
I feel I must scratch
But this itch is hard to reach
For it is on my back
Even though I try to scratch
The strength is something I lack
As I reach further
I feel it's within arms reach
I begin to scratch this feeling
My hand tingles down to my feet
A feeling worth dying for 
A feeling to have and to hold
My heart is filled with warmth and love
My hands are no longer cold

    Oh, to find such an itch and be able to scratch it. I love the way your senses come alive again once you scratch the itch of love. It is out there and always seems elusive, but if we reach far enough and long enough, I believe we shall find it! Beautiful writing; very thought-provoking! Love, Carolyn
