a shift

 

oh, once i was enthralled 

by the idea of sensuality

 

the word touch

and the words be touched

 

meant everything to me

then, one day, i was visited

 

by a ghost

we had a conversation

 

when it was over 

i hardly knew what had been said

 

or what to think

except

 

the word touch

and the words be touched

 

had lost meaning

while the word comfort

 

and the words be comforted

resonated deeply

This left me shaking my head in awe! A brilliant examination of compassion over sensuality. All with an elegant economy of words!
