I read about it



to be next to somebody

A body

yours and their body

not just anybody

I heard it’s scientifically better for your brain, you heart,

so why is it

when I try and I want it

there’s no heart next to mine

why am I neglected?


what’s wrong with me?

 why is it?…

when I tell people what I need…

 I say I need a body…

Just somebody…

who wants to lay down with me,

people seem to shrug….

why can’t we share body heat,


why aren’t I good enough ?

(You are good enough)
