Reaching

A hand reaches
Reaches to touch
Touch a face
Face is fragile
Fragile to touch
Touch other parts
Parts are gone
Gone is body
Body with no head
Head with no face
Face is you
You are gone
Gone far away
Away from me
Me wanting you
You and I 
I still reach

    ChrisStopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*
